Vegetables that start with U

1. Ube

The trend of consuming colorful foods and drinks – such as matcha green tea and rainbow-clad bagels – is gaining momentum and it was only a matter of time for purple yam treats to take over. In the Tagalog language, it is called ube and is a purple-colored sweet potato. If its outer skin appears grayish, inside its complexion tends surprisingly to purple.

This type of purplish tuber is common in many Asian countries, but it is especially common in Filipino cuisine, where it is used to make doughs, cakes, and ice cream.
