Sweet Potatoes and Spinach

image

Another nice and simple recipe for when you don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen. The sweet potatoes take the most time here but that’s because of the cooking time, not active time.

Sweet Potatoes
Preheat oven to 400 °
Dice 1 sweet potato
Place in a casserole dish and toss with 1 tbsp olive oil. 
Top with a few pinches of freshly ground black pepper, pink salt, onion powder, and garlic powder. Sprinkle with all spice and nutmeg. Mix well and add 1/2 tsp minced ginger. Bake for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through. They should be easily pierced with a fork when done.

Spinach

For the spinach, I used a frozen package, be sure to set it out to thaw. To speed up this process, run thr package under hot water. Then press spinach in a paper towel to remove excess liquid.

Preheat a skillet over medium. Lightly coat with hot pepper sesame oil.
Add 1 tsp minced garlic and spinach and cook. Add 1/2 tsp onion powder and 1/4 tsp garlic powder.  
Mix in a pinch each smoked salt (or sea salt) and freshly ground black pepper. Cook for about 8-10 minutes.

I loved these two together and love how simple it is to make.
