Best Asian sweet potato recipes

I go through about 3-4 pounds of Asian sweet potatoes per day (I know, that's a lot of fricking sweet potatoes) and I'm getting a little bored with just microwaved. The sweet potatoes I eat are the ones that aren't as sweet as the orange ones, and have purple skin, with pale yellow flesh. The only reason that I haven't tried anything other than microwaved is because I'm pretty busy and need it to be really quick, so maybe I should just cook in bulk, but I'm not sure. Any recipes are greatly appreciated

Microwaving sweet potatoes is not appealing to me with that said wraping them in foil, baking at 400* for 1.5 hrs and coat with butter is the only way I eat them SOOOO good

I use Asian sweet potatoes in curry recipes--Indian, Thai, and Japanese curries. They freeze really well, so I bake a lot of them, freeze leftovers, then thaw them out to use.

Pre-roast or microwave them, keep in fridge, slice and pan fry in coconut oil &/or butter. Sprinkle salt/spices. I also prefer oven baked over microwave, they just seem to taste better.

I've had cold sweet potato salad which is good, don't have a recipe however. I recall lots of green onions, vinegar and olive oil.
