Brown Rice with Sweet Potatoes & Cilantro Pesto

I made this recipe up tonight, inspired by what was leftover in the fridge. We all agreed it was yummy.

2 cups cooked brown rice
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup sweet potato, diced
salt to taste
1-2 Tbsp cilantro pesto (see recipe from earlier this month)

Warm oil in sauté pan and add onion. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until onions soften. Add sweet potato and continue to cook a few minutes. Add some water if the potato sticks to the pan. When potato is cooked, reduce heat to medium, stir in rice and cook until heated through. Remove from heat. Add salt and pesto to taste.
