A simple, less than 20 minute meal that can be made to fit any and all of your dietary restrictions (doing whole30 over hear…)! What I love about this recipe is that is uses three canned (but unrefined) ingredients, cutting the prep time down BIG TIME! Since I also love seasonal ingredients, incorporating canned sweet potato makes this such a lovely fall dish.

I hope you all enjoy!
