Comparing Potatoes and Taro

Have you ever tried boba tea or a smoothie that was flavored with taro? If not, then you’re in for a treat. Like a potato, taro is a root vegetable, and it’s used extensively in African, South American, and Asian cuisine. Watch this video to learn about the differences between potatoes and taro.

Taro has a sweet and nutty flavor and a soft, custard-like texture when cooked. This root vegetable is commonly used in baked goods, but it can be enjoyed in the same ways that potatoes and sweet potatoes are.
