[recipe] Heart warming sauteed sweet potato and kale
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)
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.
