Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Wilted Spinach

As I have readily admitted, I am a big time kitchen slacker these days.  When I get my butt in there, I’m usually not in the mood for anything complicated or too fancy.  This side is super easy and delicious to boot.  The prep is easy and the clean up is minimal.  It goes wonderfully with pork chops or you could just eat a big bowl of it alone…
sweet potatoes & spinach

you will need:
4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered
salt & pepper
½ cup canola oil
2 large red onions, finely chopped
¼ cup honey
4 tablespoons butter
16 oz. bag baby spinach, rinsed and dried

In a large bowl, season potatoes with salt and pepper, then toss with oil to coat.  Place on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven and toss in the onions.  Return the baking sheet to the oven and roast until potatoes are tender, about another 20 minutes.  Take out of the oven and drizzle honey over top.  Add butter and mix well until melted.  Gently toss in the spinach until wilted.

serves: 6
time: 25 min. prep + 40 min. baking
