Ingredients needed for your Sweet Potato with Bulgur and Spinach

This recipe came from an attempt to make stuffed sweet potatoes, but I didn’t have much time and decided to cut the potatoes into thinner slices… Instead of stuffed sweet potatoes, I ended up with sweet potato canapes, which were ready in no time.

The spinach and bulgur are cooked separately while the potatoes are baked in the oven. Served them together with a little pomegranate and/or fresh parsley.

Sweet Potato with Bulgur and Spinach

Sweet potato with spinach and bulgur, a tasty and easy dish that is worth a try.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 38 minutes
Servings 2 portions


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 100 g spinach
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • chili pepper
  • lemon to taste
  • pomegranate optional


  • Wash the potatoes well and slice in length into 4 slices. I do not peel them, as the peel comes off easily when baked. Sprinkle the potato slices with a little olive oil, season with salt and put in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 200 degrees.
  • Cook the bulgur according to the package instructions. Wash and roughly chop the spinach.
  • Sauté the finely chopped onion and garlic in olive oil. Add the spinach and cook until it softens and reduces its volume.
  • Add the bulgur and stir well. Season with salt and pepper and add chili pepper to taste, if desired. I usually add walnuts and flavor with some lemon.
  • Remove the potatoes from the oven and serve each slice with bulgur and some pomegranate on top.
