[recipe] Heart warming sauteed sweet potato and kale

November 22, 2009

This easy sweet potato dish was so good I just had to share… It would be great for lunch, dinner or a delish Thanksgiving side.

These quantities allowed for a substantial meal for one… feel free to adjust ingredients to accommodate more:)

  • 1 small sweet potato (cut into 1/2 in cubes)
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • small handful of cashews
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • ginger (fresh or dried)
  • cinnamon
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions

Heat olive oil in pan add sweet potato, ginger, cinnamon, salt and pepper to taste stir then add a splash of water.

Cover and reduce to a simmer (low/med low heat).

In a separate pot steam kale- if you don’t have a steamer, simply throw kale into boiling water and cover for 2 minutes and drain.

When sweet potatoes begin to feel tender add kale and add any additional grated ginger or cinnamon if your heart desires

After 5 minutes or so your nose will let you know its ready… Serve and garnish with a few cashews.
