KalePotential

Kale and sweet potatoes are two over looked veggies in the typical diet. One is mainly used in smoothies and hardly ever eaten raw/cooked due to its bitter taste. The other is normally only consumed around Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Ever thought about mashing the two together on a Monday night as a new side to chicken, Salomon and even a nice Steak. Watching the food network inspired me to go for it and try the mash up for myself and it was DELICIOUS and quick.

Recipe list

  • bunch of kale
  • 1 medium sweet potato peeled & small cubes
  • Half of onion
  • Two garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 chicken stock
  • Egg optional

Sautés onions and sweet potatoes until almost done. Add garlic 2-3 mins, add chicken stock, lid for 3-4 min. Add kale and sauté together until wilted. Add salt pepper to taste.

Delicious!

Here is another alternative side and even snack when your at work or in between meals.

Carrots and Zucchini

The sweetness of the carrots is a great complement to the zucchini. Add a touch of ginger or turmeric for a kick and another immune system boost for both have amazing holistic healing properties.

(Cut the veggies in similar sizes for even cooking. Carrots usually take the longest to cook. Do not cover cook veggies, all them to have a little texture/crunch)
