Whole30 Sweet Potato Mashup


This will make enough for 3-4 servings, depending on how much you eat.


  • 3 sweet potatoes

  • 6-7 tablespoons olive oil, divided (or avocado oil)

  • 1/2 onion, chopped (I prefer a sweet onion, but any onion will do)

  • 1 bell pepper (I used 1/2 yellow and 1/2 red bell pepper to add some color)

  • 1/4 cup of green onions, chopped

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • crushed black pepper, seasoned to taste

  • Himalayan sea salt, seasoned to taste

  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves, whole or chopped


1. Clean the sweet potatoes.

  • Note: I kept most of the skins on to increase my vitamin consumption, but if you just can’t stand the idea of keeping the skins on, you can peel the potatoes instead.

2. Cook the potatoes.

  • Note: I cooked these in the microwave for sake of time and multi-tasking, but you can also bake them.

3. After the potatoes are cooked, let them cool (to avoid burning your fingers), and cut them into 1-inch cubes.

  • Note: You can also cut them before you cook them, but I find it easier to cut them after, when they are softer.

4. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped ½ onion and garlic and sauté over medium.

5. Add bell peppers to onions in pan and continue to sauté over medium until tender. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.

6. In another pan, coat the potatoes in the remaining 4-5 tablespoons of olive oil and start reheating/cooking the potatoes, just to give them a nice firmer texture and to brown them slightly.

7. Add the oregano, paprika, parsley, and green onions to the potatoes.

8. Combine the remaining ingredients (onions/pepper mix) with the potatoes, and throw in the spinach leaves. Stir to mix gently.

9. Garnish with any remaining chopped parsley.


Although the sweet potatoes are the healthier option and also a great source of Vitamin A, this can also be made with regular potatoes for a more hearty, traditional taste. You can also combine sweet potatoes with golden potatoes for a delicious mixture of flavors.
