Hi guys! I shared a picture of this sweet potato turkey skillet recipe on our instagram last week and got a few people wanting the recipe, so I’m sharing here! Its a family favorite and so quick and easy. I make it at least once a week, and my husband doesn’t complain that it’s “too healthy” haha And my picky little eater Sawyer, loves it and will eat a ton so, I’ve got to right?? I adapted this recipe from Primavera Kitchen.
Whats even better is this is whole 30 compliant and very healthy to boot. I once added cauliflower rice to it and it was DELICIOUS.
Whole 30 Sweet Potato Turkey Skillet
1 lb Lean Turkey
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes, Cubed
1/4 cup water
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 Bell Pepper ( I like yellow or orange), diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
2 cups spinach (optional)
low fat Mozzarella cheese or queso fresco for topping
Salsa & plain greek yogurt for topping
Add oil, Onion, and bell pepper in a large saucepan or cast iron skillet*, and cook until tender. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, then add turkey and brown. Once browned add cubed sweet potato and water (cooks sweet potato quicker) Cover and cook for about 7-10 minutes until soft and easily pierce-able with a fork. Add spinach, cover and let wilt about 2 minutes. Then sprinkle with cheese. Then serve with salsa and yogurt and enjoy!
*If using a cast iron skillet add spinach and cheese, then stick in oven on high broil and broil for 3-4 minutes or until spinach is wilted and cheese is browned.
I hope you guys love this skillet! It keeps in the fridge for a week, and is very delicious as leftovers! Let me know if you try it!
