I've made this for dinner a handful of times already. It's like a big warm hug in a bowl. The sweet potatoes are out of this world when whipped up with a little mascarpone, the brussel sprouts are crispy, magical, tiny cabbages. The spinach and red peppers are pretty much like a salad on top of this delicious mix of veggies. Warm comfort turned all the way up!
dreamy sweet potato bowls
2 medium to large sweet potatoes
a package or roughly a pound of brussel sprouts, bottom sliced off and cut in half
2 bell peppers; slices
a bag of baby spinach
1/2 cup mascarpone
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375. Wash the potatoes and dry them throughly. Poke some holes in them and place on a baking sheet lined with foil. Throw the sweet little angels in the oven and bake them for 45-50 minutes, or till they feel soft. It depends on the size of the 'tater really.
While they are roasting stop and drink a beer, like dis one:
Prep the brussels, put them on a line sheet pan and sprinkle salt and pepper all over. Drizzle olive oil to evenly, Timing plays a little role in this recipe so when you take your potatoes out, put your sprouts in. They'll need about 15-20 minutes till they're roasted. We personally enjoy them to be boarder line burned, but I trust you to figure out the done-ness that you desire.
Let the potatoes cool enough to handle them. The skin should easily come off, place the flesh (hm.) in a bowl and beat with a hand mixer till broken down, add mascarpone and a little salt and pepper, beat to incorporate evenly. Set aside, I like to place mine on top the oven with a clean kitchen towel so it stays warm.
Now! Red Peppers! Heat a medium skillet to...medium heat and add some olive oil. Throw in bell peppers and sauté till they get a little color, about 5 minutes or so. Add spinach to the top and carefully mix it in, it's going to wilt very quickly, add a splash more oil if it seems too dry.
Now we assemble the bowl. Scoop a large dollop of sweet potato into a bowl, add a scoop of the red pepper and spinach to that. Lastly sprinkle a handful of the brussels on top. If you wanna, throw some hot sauce, or some spicy honey on top. Savor each bite of the dreamy sweet potato.
