Last night, my wife and I tested out a new recipe we found on Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Skillet Sweet Potato, Spinach and Sausage Hash. It’s on the By Any Means Fitness website today because it was that good! And it’s super healthy! When you combine sweet potatoes, spinach, and lean turkey (or chicken) Italian sausage, you really can’t go wrong. I’m recommending that you give this one a try. You won’t regret it.
Ingredients and Instructions
2 small to medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (or one large)
1 apple, peeled cored and diced
2 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
2 Mild Italian turkey or chicken sausages, removed from casing
2 to 3 large cups of baby spinach
1/3 cup sweet yellow onion, diced
salt and pepper to taste
In a large nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium-high heat. Once heated, add diced sweet potatoes and apples. Add a pinch or two of sea salt and cinnamon to the pan. Cook sweet potatoes and apples until cooked and softened; maybe even slightly browned.
While the sweet potatoes are cooking, heat a large skillet with 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium heat. Add to skillet the chicken (or turkey) sausage and onion making sure to break the sausage up in small pieces while it cooks. Once the chicken is no longer pink in color and completely cooked add spinach to the skillet. Don’t worry the spinach will wilt down when cooked. The spinach should wilt down within 1 to 2 minutes. Once spinach is cooked add the sweet potato apple mixture to pan and stir to combine all.
Makes about 3 to 4 servings depending on if you are serving as a side or main course.
