  1. I had no idea you could eat these. Love your blog!

  2. @Maggie:Yes they're edible. I’m glad you like my blog and thanks.

  3. omg this is EXACTLY how my mum cooks sweet potato leaves. back home in singapore, we actually grow them in the garden (: we have 2 varieties, and my mum will always whip up a batch, freshly picked from the garden. here in the uk, the climate doesn't allow me to get sweet potato leaves, but I do the same with other veg, like spinach etc.
