Not only is this recipe tasty, it is packed with vitamins and minerals. Sweet Potatoes and Kale are full of amazing health benefits!
2 tablespoons olive oil (divided), plus more if needed
11⁄2 pounds sweet potatoes (2 medium), peeled and cut into 1⁄2-inch cubes
3⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt (divided)
1 tablespoon chili powder (divided)
11⁄2 teaspoons ground cumin (divided)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium bunch kale (about 10 ounces), center ribs and tough stems removed, leaves shredded
1 tablespoon water
In a large (12 inches or wider) nonstick frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Add the sweet potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until starting to soften. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, 2 teaspoons of the chili powder, and 1 teaspoon of the cumin. Add a touch more oil if the pan seems dry, then continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes more, until the sweet potatoes are golden brown and cooked through. If the sweet potato cubes are larger than 1/2 inch, they may take longer to cook. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a bowl.
In the same pan, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the garlic over medium heat. When the garlic starts to sizzle (do not let it brown), add the kale—a little at a time until all of it fits in the pan—and turn it with tongs to coat it with the garlicky oil. Add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon chili powder, and 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Stir in the water and cook for about 5 minutes, until the kale is wilted and tender. Return the sweet potatoes to the pan and heat for about 2 minutes more, until heated through. Taste and season with salt if needed. Serve hot.
Enjoy! Isaiah 58:11
