Fried Sweet Potato, Spinach and Rice
It was pretty gloomy outside today, so I decided to stay in and experiment with cooking! I try to cook on a regular basis, but it’s not my favorite thing in the world to do. I mainly do it out of necessity, since eating out everyday is both unhealthy and really expensive, especially in New York!
I had some unused sweet potatoes in the refrigerator and decided to whip something up. This was a quick and easy dish to make, and I even have leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch!
I then decided to pour a little brown sugar in a bowl and dip the sweet potato slices in it to give them a little sweetness. They turned out really sweet, so I’d may hold off on this next time, or use honey instead.
The sweet potato slices were done really quick. It took maybe 5 – 10 minutes. You will know they are done when they turn brown. Put a few paper towels on a plate to absorb the excess oil.
I found this really quick, microwaveable bag of fresh spinach at my local grocery store the other day. All you do is poke a few holes in the bag and set the microwave to about 3 minutes (depending on microwave settings)!
Finally, I added a little margarine to the rice and salt to the spinach, put everything in a bowl and chowed down. It was really good, and filling too!
