Sweet Potato Hash Browns - a healthy side dish cooked in coconut oil.

Healthy potatoes? Absolutely! These colorful gems are full of wonderful nutrients. Some might say they are even a superfood.

I am always open to new ideas...well, almost always.

When my daughter made these for us, I was completely blown away at how incredibly delicious they were.  It's also a fast way to cook sweet potatoes, which is always a plus, and the leftovers disappear by the next day...if there are any!

This flavorful side dish is almost too easy, and complements almost any entree. Here is something that you might not know...they are incredible in burritos.

You will need just three simple ingredients, some salt and pepper, and a hot skillet or grill. 

Sweet Potato Hash Browns
3-4 sweet potatoes, washed and dried. I buy organic so I can leave the peel on.
1 large onion. I use yellow, but any type you have is fine.
1-2 Tbsp coconut oil
salt and pepper to taste

Grate sweet potatoes and set aside.
Chop onion into small pieces.
Heat coconut or other oil in a hot skillet or on a hot grill.
Add sweet potatoes and onions to hot oil and cook until slightly browned and tender. Turn every 3-5 minutes, or as needed to cook evenly.

Serve them up with your meal.

If you have leftovers they are wonderful warmed up for breakfast.
