Kale and Sweet Potato Stew

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Did you know that Kale and Sweet Potatoes are a deliciously wonderful pair? They go so beautifully together! The sweetness of the potato compliments the robust flavor of the kale. Plus the bright orange against the dark green is quite a lovely color combination. This particular recipe is a quick and simple way to enjoy these two nutritious and delicious vegetables together! In fact this dish comes together so easy with minimal prep time that I sometimes even make it for the kids and myself for lunch.

Ingredients:

Olive oil

1 small onion, diced

4-6 cloves of garlic, chopped

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 bunch of kale, de-stemmed and torn into bite size pieces

water

salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Sautee onions and garlic in olive oil. Add sweet potatoes and enough water to the top of the sweet potatoes. Cover and allow to gently simmer until soft, about 15 minutes. Add kale, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook for about 1o more minutes until kale is bright green and soft. Serve over cooked brown rice. Enjoy!
