Kale and Sweet Potato Hash

Kale is something we know is good for us.  But the biggest challenge is always how do I make kale and make it taste good.  We'll so far sautéed kale is my favorite.  This one is coming in a close second.  I was disappointed in how the sweet potato came out because I overcooked it. They ended up mushy.

Just watch the time you cook the onion and sweet potato before adding the kale.  It takes a good 7-14 more minutes to cook down the kale because each batch you add takes about 7 minutes to cook down. Make sure the sweet potato's are still someone andante when you add the kale.

Kale and Sweet Potato Hash


2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 small onion, chopped
1 bunch kale, rinsed, thick stems removed and leaves torn into small pieces
1 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder*
2 pinches ground clove
Freshly ground black pepper
White wine vinegar (optional)


In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add the sweet potatoes and onion. Cook for approximately 5 minutes until the onions are tender, stirring occasionally.
Add 1/2 cup of chicken broth, salt, chili powder, cloves, and 4 turns of freshly ground black pepper. Cover and cook until sweet potatoes are tender, approximately 7 minutes.
Uncover, add another 1/2 cup chicken broth and then the kale (in batches if necessary) and cook until kale is tender, approximately 5-7 minutes.
Season with additional salt and ground black pepper to taste and splash with a bit of white wine vinegar for brightness if desired.
