Looking to shake things up a bit? Find some alternatives to the over-used white potato? How about you give the sweet potato a try?
It's loaded with nutrients: vitamin A, some of the B's, niacin, riboflavin, and given it's bright orange color I'm sure you already figured carotenoids were on the list too (cause you're smart like that!).
Sweet potatoes can be cooked up in various ways, baked, roasted, boiled. They are incredibly low maintenance and super easy to add as a side or use as the main dish.
With this sweet potato hash recipe I give you freedom to play around. Try adding some other veggies to the mix. Check out what you've got in the fridge and throw 'em in, onions, tomatoes, spinach, or pecans. Or try out some different spiced. Spice them up with cayenne and paprika, or make them holiday themed with cinnamon and nutmeg.
- 1 large sweet potato
- coconut oil
It may not seem like enough, but 1 sweet potato will provide plenty. This turns out to be more than enough for 2 people. Trust me, I made the mistake for you by cooking way too much the first time I made this recipe. We had sweet potatoes for the rest of the week!
Directions: wash and peel the sweet potato, then shred it. Melt the coconut oil in a pan, then add the shredded sweet potato and a dash of salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat until browned, stirring and flipping as you go.
