Dave and I went to the apple orchard this past week, and I’ve been looking for ways to add apples to our everyday meals. We make sweet potato hash at least 2-3 times a week. Not only is it super simple, but it helps provide complex carbs and are a great way to refuel after a workout! Dave and I both put sweet potatoes at the top of our lists of favorite carbs. Add in chopped apples and you get a new layer of sweetness, the apples almost caramelize a bit. Talk about heaven! This is a must try combination!
To get this recipe on the table in under 15 minutes, I took a short cut and used the microwave to get the potatoes most of the way cooked. If you are against the microwave, you might have to add 10 more minutes to this recipe, but it would still qualify as dinner in under 30 minutes!
The key to getting potatoes to cook quickly, cut the potatoes small, and make them uniform. This is a lesson I’m still trying to teach Dave. Poor thing gets so hungry after we workout, then he gets frustrated when his potatoes don’t all cook at the same time.
