Whether you follow a paleo diet or not, this ground turkey and sweet potato skillet is still a delicious meal! Plus you can have a complete meal on the table in under 30 minute (yes, that include prep time too!). Let’s get right into it…
Start out by washing and peeling your sweet potato. Then chop it into small chunks. The size of these chunks are pretty important, if they are too large, then they will take longer to cook and you run the risk of drying out the meal. I cut mine into about 1/2 inch pieces. Set aside and then wash, core, and chop your pepper, and then peel and chop your onion. Or you can be lazy like me and buy pre-diced onion at the store…
Now let’s get cooking! Pour your olive oil into a large pan on the stove and heat over medium-high heat. Add your ground turkey and minced garlic, and cook until the turkey is brown (8-10 minutes).
Add the chopped pepper and onion and cook for another 3 minutes. Add in your spices and mix well.
Then add in the chopped sweet potato and water. Cover the pan and let it cook until the sweet potato is soft, about 10 minutes. (This could be longer if your sweet potato chunks are larger). Keep an eye on the mixture and add more water if it starts to look dry.
Serve immediately or store in the fridge up to 5 days. If you’re not following a strict paleo diet, try topping it with mozzarella cheese for even more delicious flavor! Top with shredded mozzarella cheese if you're not following a strict paleo diet
