1 large sweet potato, scrubbed, peeled, and chopped into 1" to 2" chunks
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. salt
generous pinch of chilli powder
Heat olive oil in a non stick pan over medium high heat. Once heated, place sweet potato in pan and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Next, season with salt & pepper, tossing to ensure potatoes are coated with seasoning. Place lid on pan and continue to cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Don't be afraid to let your potatoes brown up a bit on the bottom, it adds extra flavor!
After cooking for 10 minutes, your potatoes should be soft enough to pierce with a fork, but still slightly hard on the inside. At this point, add in onions, garlic, and chilli powder. Lower heat slightly to medium-low, and place the lid back on. Continue to cook for 5 more minutes, or until onions are soft and translucent.
Remove from heat and serve immediately.
*This recipe makes 2 servings, but can be easily doubled*
