Sweet potatoes are one my favorite vegetables and often overlooked in favor of white potatoes. This is great as a breakfast side or with dinner. Remember, sweet potatoes have the lighter skin and flesh. The yam is darker. But if you have yams, they work great here, too.
2 T olive oil
2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 yellow or white onion, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- Heat olive oil in skillet until hot. Add potatoes and onions and turn to medium heat.
- Stir frequently as they will brown quickly. Add salt and cumin.
- Continue to cook for about 15 minutes until well browned and soft to the bite.
