Sweet Potato Home Fries

In attempt to make home fries a tad healthier, we swapped sweet potatoes for regular white potatoes. Funnily enough, we had orange bell peppers that matched the potatoes, too! These home fries were actually better than regular ones! They are really flavorful and the addition of spinach lets you get some greens in!

This is my portion. Kurt had some too!


1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 small orange bell pepper, chopped
1 large handful of baby spinach
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste


Peel and chop sweet potato. Boil or steam potatoes until just fork tender. Don't overcook. Drain or remove potatoes from steam.

Heat large saute pan to medium heat. Add sweet potatoes, onion, bell pepper, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cover to let cook, occasionally removing lid to stir, about 5 minutes.

When onion and bell pepper is soft, add spinach and garlic. Saute for another minuted or two.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
