Sweet Potato & Spinach Hash


Looking for an easy to make good for you side dish....here's one I love. It's a simple combination of two healthy ingredients kicked up a notch with a taste of pure maple syrup.

According to a study done by the Center For Science In the Public Interest both sweet potatoes and spinach rank in the top 5 for nutrition of all vegetables. Sweet Potatoes actually ranks number 1 due to the fact that it has almost twice the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A, 42 percent of the recommendation for vitamin C, four times the RDA for beta carotene, and, when eaten with the skin, sweet potatoes have more fiber than oatmeal.
