Sweet Potato and Spinach Skillet

I was given 4 large sweet potatoes a couple of days ago.  So, I needed to find a good way to use a couple of them...soon.  The next day I happened upon the following recipe and last Sunday I tried it.

I'm always on the lookout for more healthy recipes to add to my collection.  Happily, this dish was a success.'s a keeper!  I'll be taking a bowl of it in my work lunch each day this week, along with a boiled egg, since it's important to include protein as a part of each meal.

Actually, I should call my version...Sweet Potato and Spinach Skillet. Here's a photo of my version.

I substituted spinach since I didn't have any kale in my fridge and truthfully, I have yet to try kale.  I know that it's supposed to be a "super food", so I really should try some.  Have you tried it?  If so, what is your favorite way to eat it?  Please share.

Once I did all my chopping (my husband says I can probably chop in my sleep, since I do so much of it!), things moved right along.  Since the potato is chopped into such small pieces, it cooked quickly.

That's it for today.  I'll be back soon to share a broccoli salad recipe that is a favorite of mine.  A great summer side dish!

  1. I was a little afraid of kale but I got some in a Blue Apron box that I got for free. They told me to prepare it by trimming it off the stems, chopping it up, and then sautéing in a little olive oil. Then you add salt, pepper, and some red wine vinegar. Guess what? I liked it and so did my husband and oldest son!
