Sweet Potato Mash & Vegetable Medley
Level: Easy-Medium - Length: 1.5 hours - Servings: 2
At home my family and I don't always have a plan for dinner every night. We stress out picking something to eat and eventually I will throw something together like this! As long as you have the staple ingredients, you can create any kind of meal! Some of my favorite staple home ingredients are vegetables (broccoli, peppers, zucchini, asparagus, garlic, onion etc.), spices, brown rice and quinoa, sweet potato and fruit.
- 2 sweet potatoes - 1 red pepper. chopped - 1 cooking onion, diced - 3 cloves of garlic, minced - 1 large handful of spinach - 1 zucchini, sliced - 2 chicken breasts or 4 chicken thighs (optional) - 1 tsp chilli powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried parsley - Salt and pepper
Rinse the potatoes. Coat in a light layer of olive oil and bake the sweet potatoes at 400 degrees for 45 minutes - 1 hour. (When finished being cooked a fork should easily go through it) In a pan cook the chicken over medium heat with a little coconut oil. Season with salt and pepper, chilli powder and cumin. Make sure it is just about fully cooked. The sweet potatoes should be cooked by now. Let them cool so you can peel the skins off. Take the skins off, put the potato flesh in a bowl and mash until desired texture. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of chilli powder. Once chicken is cooked turn the heat to low and throw in the chopped vegetables and garlic. Stir a few times and cook until the veggies are soft. Lay a large spoonful of the sweet potato onto the plate and spread it into a circle. Lay the chicken and veggies on top and enjoy!
