Kiwis love kumara…Sweet, scrumptious, melt-in-your-mouth kumara, yum! Whether roasted or mashed, baked or boiled, chipped or wedged, in salads, stews or soups, the colourful kumara (or sweet potato) is one of the greatest pleasures of being a New Zealander. Let’s face it … a roast isn’t a Kiwi roast without delicious red, orange or golden roasted kumara. And did you know that the kumara plant has a heart-shaped leaf? No wonder these versatile veggies are so easy to love.
