TODAY’S FOOD TRIVIA QUESTIONS

A member of the morning glory family, related to the turnip, with flesh the color and texture of waterchestnuts, this tuber has a sweet, nutty flavor. It is native to the Americas, and was introduced into the Philippines and Malaysia in the 17th century. Its use has spread throughout Asia and the Pacific islands. It is great in salads, and is frequently used in stir fries. The crisp white flesh remains crisp after cooking. Only the roots are eaten, as the leaves, stems, ripe pods, and seeds may be poisonous. The mature seeds contain a fairly high concentration of rotenone, an insecticide.
Can you name this vegetable?
