Purple yam (a.k.a ube) has been enjoying some time in the culinary limelight as of late. It’s a versatile root vegetable from the Philippines that, thanks to its naturally vibrant purple hue, can be used to create stunning desserts and dinners alike. You can also shop for the purple starch in its various forms (like extract and spread) at most Filipino specialty grocers in Canada.

Whether you blend it with sweetener to make purple cookie icing or mix it in with practically any kind of batter, the internet’s brimming with creative and enticing ways to cook with ube. Here are just a few of our favourites.
