What to make for dinner…isn’t that the question of the evening every evening?
With just a handful of ingredients, you’ve got yourself a healthy, satiating, simple meal in under 30 minutes. Oh, and it’s delicious.
Make a little extra and you’ve got lunch for tomorrow covered.
This is definitely my go-to weeknight meal because I always have sweet potato, onion, garlic, and spinach on hand. I also always keep chicken or turkey sausage in the freezer.
Packed into this simple dish is complex carbs for sustained energy, protein to keep you full, and veggies for lots of vitamins and antioxidants. How’s that for a one-pan meal?
one pan sweet potato sausage hash (GF, PALEO)
Prep Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 20-25 minutes
Yield: 1-2 servings
- 1 sweet potato
- 1/2 medium yellow onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 chicken sausage link (or other meat of choice)
- 2 tsp olive oil
- salt/pepper (optional, to taste)
- Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat.
- Chop the sweet potato into about 1/2 inch cubes. The smaller they are, the faster they cook.
- Add sweet potato to pan. Coat in olive oil, cover, and cook for 5 minutes, making sure there is enough moisture in the pan so that they do not burn.
- Chop onion. Add to pan.
- Mince garlic and slice chicken sausage.
- Add garlic, sausage, and spinach to pan. Cook until sausage is heated through and sweet potatoes are soft enough to pierce with a fork. If you don’t like your spinach wilted, wait to add until the very end of cooking.
