I used small dice on the sweet potatoes instead of grating them, and also used frozen spinach for this dish. It was very colorful and tasty. I bet this would be great with wilted kale or other greens too. Thank you!
This was great! To get them to actually brown, I used a potato ricer to squeeze all the liquid from the sweet potatoes before frying. Be forewarned that mine cooked down by half by the time they were crispy. Next time I'll make a double batch.
This gets a 4 star because while I loved it DH was only so-so with it. I will make it again for myself because I think it was a great, healthy side. I could eat this as a main meal with a fried on top. :) Thanks for posting. Lesley aka K9Owned
I was really excited to make this because it is perfect for my current diet. The flavors were as expected (used a leek instead of shallots) but I had a bunch of trouble with the texture. I wonder if it matters what type of sweet potatoes you use. I use the ruby red yams and they end up so moist. I never got them to brown, instead they kept sticking to my well seasoned cast iron skillet. I think I need to give up on trying to fry my sweet potatoes! Also depending on the appetite, people should consider doubling the recipe. My potatoes were so big that I only needed one (it was 1.5 lb) and it made 3 side dish servs for us.
What a wonderful sweet potato recipe. Imam presently on WW right now, so I loved the addition of spinach. An added plus was it was beautiful.
I did the full recipe for 3 and still had a serve left over but we did really enjoy, would loved to have been able to add the hot sauce but with the DM that was a no no but was hoping against hope that she would eat her spinach (though I actually used silverbeat as I have an abudance of it in the garden at the moment). All over a very nice side, thank you LifeIsGood, made for Aussie/Kiwi recipe swap #61, February 2012.
This is a beautiful recipe! The colors are spectacular. Very hearty and filling too! I love sweet potatoes and spinach, and these were delicious together. Thanks for sharing!
