Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite foods, so tasty, nutritious and so many ways to cook it. Today I was trying to find a way to have some Turmeric Tonic, because I’m having a little bit of a sinus pressure, and Turmeric Tonic always helps, but I did not want a warm drink. So I decided to cook a small potato on the stove and add the turmeric elixir at the end.
So much goodness and healing properties in a simple meal
This post is going to be really short but I wanted to have this simple recipe here for further reference, because it was so tasty and such a great carrier for my turmeric. If you’ve been following my posts and Instagram for a while you know how obsessed I am with this turmeric because it’s the best tonic and anti-inflammatory you could have. It helps with menstrual discomfort, sinus pressure, headache or fatigue. The mix which contains a magical mix of superfoods and adaptogens is made by Further Food, and if you want to order from their website you can use the code CREATIVEINMYKITCHEN10 for a 10% off from your first order (just between us, if you’ve used the code already, ask a neighbor, colleague or family member to place an order for you).

Back to our sweet potatoes. I made a single serving using a super small sweet potato, but you can make a big batch for a big family, in an even bigger pan. I use avocado oil and added a little bit of onion with the potatoes. I only added the turmeric tonic at the end, because you don’t want that to cook, but it needs to be mixed with something hot and fatty to activate the curcumin in turmeric. You can eat them immediately, but I had them cold, because I wanted to test how it would work in a lunch box. They are super tasty and that makes them perfect for a lunch meal prep. Of course, there are so many other ways to prepare sweet potatoes in advance, and this is just one.
In case you are wondering, the frying pan I used is All-Clad D3 ARMOR, 8inch (I also have the 10inch) and it is one of my favorite cookware items I own. The lunch box is the Bento Cinco from LunchBots (4 cups, 5 compartments). You can also check out my shop site for the cookware and gadgets.

Turmeric Sweet Potato
An easy and delicious way to enjoy a sweet potato and benefit the healing properties of turmeric and adaptogens
- Avocado oil for frying
- 1 small sweet potato, cubed
- a small handful of finely sliced red onion
- 1 scoop turmeric tonic (Further Food)
- salt to taste
Peel and cube the sweet potato and finely slice the onion.
Heat a generous amount of avocado oil in a frying or sauteeing pan (to cover the bottom of the pan), heat on medium and add the potatoes and the onion. Stir well so everything is coated with oil and let them cook on one side. Stir again so you cover the other sides. Don't stir too much otherwise they can become too soft and break. Cook for about 15 minutes or until they are slightly golden brown. Add one scoop of turmeric tonic, take off heat and stir well to coat the potatoes with the powder. Add salt to your taste.
Serve immediately or store in a glass container for later use.
