This Sweet Potato Green Beans Shrimp Skillet is gluten-free, super filling, and only one pot. The best part? It is done in less than 30 minutes. Enjoy!
I am back to share with you a one-skillet dinner recipe because I know we all loooove this type of meal, right? I am sure you will agree with me on this one. Quick and easy to prepare; done in less than 30 minutes and fewer dishes to do. Who doesn’t like that?
This Shrimp Skillet with Sweet Potato and Green Beans is inspired by the Shrimp Sweet Potato Kale Skillet I have on my blog, which is one of my most popular recipes of all time. Actually, I was going to cook this popular recipe again but I didn’t have kale in my fridge. I had lots of green beans that were about to go bad, though.
So before they went bad, I used them in this recipe. I also added lots of cheese because my husband always complains that I don’t add enough. He is right and I totally understand why he loves cheese on his dishes. Cheese is so delicious and flavorful. However, I try not to eat a lot of cheese because of all the fat. I guess, once in a while it is not a big deal. If you are trying to avoid dairy and eat fewer calories, you can totally omit the cheese.
