Nutritional values

Botanically speaking, sweet potatoes, also called batatas, are not related to potatoes; but they are prepared in the same way. Sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene and protect the cells from free radicals. They are low in calories and cholesterol and rich in vitamins and minerals.

Since the side dish contains relatively little protein in relation to fat and carbohydrates, serve a high-protein yoghurt dip with the baked batata.
