Today I'm sharing with you a side dish. Now, side dishes really aren't my strongest recipe area simply because:
1. My husband thoroughly embraces the carnivore abilities humans have and would rather have a big pile of meat on his plate than have the meat, veggies and starches be in their appropriate serving sizes.
2. I love steamed, grilled and roasted vegetables but those often seem too simple and obvious to bother blogging. Or should I? Let me know! :)
3. Our daughter inherited my husband's appetite so I'm usually the only one in the family who is interested in side dishes.
The end. :)
So anyhow, my motivation to come up with new and exciting side dishes is sorely lacking. But I'm working on it. Lately I've been pushing myself at the grocery store to try new vegetables or cook with ones I rarely use. And it's slowly working. I thought the side dish recipe I'm about to share with you was pretty darn yummy...if that's okay to say about your own cooking?
Saute the sweet potato chunks solo for 5 minutes. Then add in sliced onion along with a bit of salt and pepper.
Saute for 5-8 minutes or until the sweet potato is almost fork-tender and the onion has "softened."
