Easy and Cheap Daigaku-Imo Kimpira with Sweet Potato Skins

Economical cooking with leftover potato skin that usually goes to waste. Let's make one more dish after making a potato dish. Also good for bentos.

Ingredients

Sweet Potato Skins
2 potato's worth
Honey
1 to 2 tablespoons
Black sesame seeds
as needed
Soy sauce
to taste

Steps

1. Peel the sweet potato rather thickly. Shred the skin and soak in water. Drain well in a colander or a sieve. Use the insides for something else.
2. Heat a generous amount of oil in a frying pan and stir-fry the potato skin thoroughly until it's crispy.
3. Add honey and black sesame seeds and mix well. Drizzle some soy sauce from the edges of the pan and mix everything together.
4. Enjoy!

Story Behind this Recipe

When I made sweet potato cake, I had a bunch of potato skins leftover so I made them into daigaku-imo styled kimpira shreds.
There's vitamin C and anthocyanin, a type of polyphenol with an antioxidative effect, in the skin of sweet potatoes.
Don't let it go to waste.
