I keep hearing that the kale trend is over but as I have never actually been hip you can rest assured that you will continue to see lots of kale recipes in the future. You just can’t go wrong with it’s bitterness and texture when cooked.
This kale and sweet potato recipe is quite sugary especially with the addition of balsamic and orange juice, so keep that in mind when you pair it with a main course. Perhaps try serving it with some roast chicken or duck breasts?
Orange Sweet Potatoes and Kale(serves 2)
1. Preheat oven to 425F.
2. Peel the sweet potatoes and chop them into a large dice. Toss with a tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place on a baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes or until tender and cooked through. Toss and flip at the 15 minute mark. (Note: can be prepped ahead to this step.)
3. Place a medium frying pan on medium high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and the remaining ingredients. Toss until kale is wilted. Season to taste and serve hot.
