So I havent been on the block for a while, my last post was right before Christmas and I WAS suppose to blog about my sister’s Best Ever Yummy Red Velvet Cake. But what had happened was? I just got lazy and somewhat bored with blogging after only a few months of doing it. So lately I’ve been trying my best to eat more healthier and to cut out as much processed food as I can. Most of my meals over the past month have been mostly vegetarian/vegan. However I’m not fully converted I still like to eat some seafood at least once a week or every other week. If you have ever been to Hawaii and had Giovanni’s Shrimp on the North Shore of Oahu then you understand. So here is a dish that I came across on Pinterest and of course made it with my own style. The entire dish is vegan and if you do eat meat on an occasion this would pair well with grilled chicken.
So here it is Sweet Potatoes and Kale
So as you see everything is simmering away in the skillet. I did not take any prep pictures cause I decided while this was cooking to just make it into a blog. What I used was:
A dash of nutmeg
A little garlic powder
A few dashes of red hot chili flakes, for fun(optional)
(I dont measure anything by the way)
To speed up cooking time, I boil the sweet potatoes first. While that’s boiling I chop up my onions let them cook for a few minutes and add the garlic. After that I add the kale or you could use spinach. Once the greens are wilted down I add the sweet potatoes and let it simmer on a low heat for about 10 minutes or just enough to let some of the liquid thicken up.
Now you can stop right here and it would be fine by it self or you can have a bread of choice. Since I dont eat alot of bread these days, I made some pearled couscous. If you dont have that you can use: brown rice, any grain like bulgur or farro would go good with this.
This is an easy dish to make and it’s very healthy and pretty satisfying. If your trying to figure out something for a meatless monday this would be a great start. Hope you enjoy!!!
