The Philippine’s Purple Passion: The Purple Yam

I’ve lived in two major areas of the United States with large Filipino populations. As a you befriend members of the Filipino community and sit and dine with them there is one thing you are likely to see and that is the purple yam. The purple yam is naturally healthy but often it is used as the base of many a delicious dessert such as Ube Halaya and more.

According to Healthline.com– This tuberous root vegetable originates from Southeast Asia and is often confused with taro root. An indigenous staple of the Philippines, it’s now cultivated and enjoyed worldwide.

Purple yams have greyish-brown skins and purple flesh, and their texture becomes soft like a potato when cooked. 

They have a sweet, nutty flavor and are used in a variety of dishes ranging from sweet to savory.

What’s more, they are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all of which may benefit your health. Click to see 7 Health Benefits.
