We steam our veg Dave. But do boil/bake our spuds. I'm not a regular with sweet potatoes so don't know the best way.

Steaming usually holds more of the goodness in and a general rule of them is that overcooking will loose some of the nutrients but I believe this is more of a statement on the vitamins and minerals in them rather than any loss in carb/protein content, unless of course it becomes charcoal .

We actually have stirfrys quite often but without a lot of the fatty oils. Peppers, onions, garlic, mangetout etc. plus the steamed veggies(brocolli and cauli) on the side. Occassionally we use straight to wok noddles. Yum Yum

I boil mine Dave.

Peel and then chop of ends

Cut into chunks or slice

Weigh out the amount you need

Add to saucepan of cold water and put on the hob set to high

Set timer to 30min

Once boiling, turn down to medium heat and simmer until done.

Sweet potatoes are also only 54 on the Glycaemic Index compaired to a baked potatoe of 85 which is high.
