I first published a recipe for this years ago but it desperately needing updating, both with the method and the photos. So about this dish, simply put it is all about Fall with my favorite 2 produce items of the season! It only has a few ingredients and it’s easy to make so that’s a big win in my book. I like the red onion in this for a little color but any onion will do. Also, a favorite of sweet potatoes or yams (what is the difference anyway? Read this) is the Garnet Yam!
Makes 2 servings
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2 in cubes
1 apple, cored and diced
1/2 red onion, diced (about ½ cup is good)
1-2 Tbsp vegan butter (optional)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Heat iron skillet (or nonstick skillet) over medium heat with enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Let warm for a few minutes. You don’t want to throw your sweet potatoes into a cold skillet with cold oil – it should sizzle a little bit.
Add sweet potatoes and stir around a little to coat in the oil. Let cook untouched for about 5 minutes. Then give them a toss, bottoms should be a little browned, and cook another 5 minutes. Add additional oil in needed to keep them from sticking.
Add onion and apple, cook 4-5 minutes until everything is tender and the sweet potatoes are browned.
Stir in butter if using, give a toss to melt it and coat everything. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
