This recipe is so many things: delicious, effortless, nutritious, colorful, and great for any meal. I made a big batch of these to have with grilled chicken for dinner, and then used the left overs with eggs and spinach the next morning.
When I opened up my pantry the other day, I remembered the lonely and giant bag of sweet potatoes I had bought from Costco.
It sat there unopened, all of them staring at me saying "Eat us now before we sprout and die ugly!" I thought, what on earth am I going to do with all of these?! I love you but sheesh, there is a small army of sweet potatoes here.
Then the answer became obvious, abandon all of them into a slow cooker (that was literally sitting on the next shelf up)!
I mean c'mon, there is nothing better than coming home after a long day and knowing your food is just sitting there, ready to get in your tummy after cooking all day.
The downfall of course, is it requires a little extra thought and prep time before you head out the door, so a recipe as simple as possible is always appreciated. Thus, the following:
Set aside ~10-15 minutes before you start your day to prep this.
