inspired by this recipe (:

  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • optional: tony chachere’s creole spice to kick it up a notch


  1. preheat oven 375F
  2. mix spices in a asmall ramekin.
  3. dice sweet potato finely and shake & bake: in a ziplock bag, toss potatoes in half the spices and a tsp olive oil. then bake ~15-20 min. or until just fork tender.
  4. in a saute pan, heat a bit of oil and saute onions and bell peppers ~ 3-5 min. add rest of spices and tony chachere’s if you want more flavor.
  5. add potatoes and spinach and saute until just wilted. salt to taste.
