I love that this meal packs a punch with vitamins and minerals because quite honestly, I’m a meal skipper when I get into a groove with my work, especially during a big product launch. Skipping meals for anyone is a no-no but for entrepreneurs, it’s a bad habit that we sometimes fall prey to and wonder why on earth we’re energy-deprived.
White sweet potatoes look and taste just like regular old white potatoes but aren’t in the nightshade family so they are suitable for anyone following an AIP (autoimmune paleo) lifestyle. They are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, and vitamin E – all super important for strong immune systems and stress reduction.
Ya’ll know that I rave about Real Plans, the #1 done-for-you mean meal planning service. This recipe came straight out of their recommendation. I just searched for meals based on my dietary preference, used the word “sweet potato” and voila! So easy. Enjoy!
Ham and White Sweet Potato Hash
3 white sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons duck fat, or fat of choice
1 teaspoon organic garlic powder
1 teaspoon organic dried oregano
1 teaspoon organic dried rosemary
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt, plus more to taste
2 cups uncured ham
10 cups organic spinach leaves
How To Prepare
- Preheat the oven to 400F and line a baking tray.
- Peel and cube the sweet potatoes. Warm the fat so that it is liquid, if necessary.
- In a large bowl, toss the sweet potato cubes with seasonings and half of the melted fat. Add salt to taste.
- Spread the cubes out on the lined baking tray in a single layer: bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until a fork can pierce a potato cube easily but firmly.
- Remove the tray of potatoes from the oven and set aside on a cooling rack.
- In a large skillet, heat remaining duck fat over medium heat.
- Fry potatoes in single layer (do multiple batches if necessary) for 5-8 minutes, tossing every minute or so to brown on all sides and be done to your desired level of crispiness.
- Cube the cooked ham if not already in bite-sized pieces.
- At the end, toss in the cooked ham and cook until warm through. Add the spinach and cook until it is just wilted. Serve immediately.
