I’m trying to eat healthy ya’ll! Its a struggle! Especially eating out! So I’ve been trying new recipes at home. This is my latest super simple meal. I LOVE Trader Joe’s and noticed these sweet potato ribbons and I remembered I loved a brown butter sage sweet potato gnocchi that I once had at a restaurant. *Light Bulb goes off* I throw them in the basket along with some fresh sage leaves, I went home to experiment and viola! Here we are. Super quick. Super easy. Super tasty!
1 container of Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Ribbons
1 tablespoon olive oil, or more as needed
1/2 cup butter
2 containers of Trader Joe’s fresh sage leaves
Salt to taste
Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato ribbons; cook, stirring often and adding more oil to prevent sticking, until starting to soften, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Heat butter in the same skillet until melted and foaming, about 1 minute. Add sage leaves; swirl until butter is a rich caramel color and leaves are crisp and dark green, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove sage leaves from the butter and place on a paper towel to dry. Add sweet potato ribbons back to butter and skillet; stir to coat well. Season sweet potato with salt and garnish with crisp sage leaves.I love the taste of the sage leaves, so I like A LOT of sage on mine. Add leaves to your taste. You can add them whole or break up.
FIN! Bon appetite! Seriously takes about 15-20 minutes total.
Note: I’ve also added Kale sometimes with the sage leaves depending on my mood. Just a potential suggestion. It was tasty, but I prefer it without the kale. May try spinach next. I’ve also tried adding pine nuts, but I wasn’t overly impressed. I will keep ya posted on any next updates to the recipe that I find are better than this simple one and please let me know if you have suggestions or find a tasty addition in your experimenting.
