Sweet Potato Stir Fry

After doing some research and experimentation with purple sweet potatoes, I found they are not quite as sweet as orange sweet potatoes, but are great for more savory dishes, like stir-fry.

Their purple skin also makes them a great source of antioxidants and adds some fun and color to your food.
