Kale, Sweet Potato + Onion Hash

I have a best friend named Karlee.  She is one of my most favorite people on the planet.  And she introduced me to the delicious combination of sweet potato, onion and kale.

I’ve been on quite a “kale kick” lately and this recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or side dish.

The combination of flavors and textures is delightful and I love how healthy this dish is – rich in fiber, protein and vitamins.  When I’m serving this as the main dish, I mix in quinoa and/or roasted chicken.  It is PHENOMENAL with some Sriracha on top.  And equally yummy as-is.

To save time, you could roast the sweet potato in advance, and then heat the roasted potato cubes back up when you add them to the pot.  This dish is sure to become a weeknight staple in your home!
