Sweet Potato/Kale/Sausage Hot Dish

I have been loving the fresh greens that come early in the growing season, but my son who is 1.5 years old does not share the same appreciation (yet!). So I decided to try a new dish with one of his least favorite greens of all, Kale! I found a recipe from the blog of Lee Hersch, Fit Foodie Finds, and tweeked it a little. Below is my version of this delicious hot dish. The sweet potatoes lend a good source of potassium and the meat provides the protein to keep you satisfied! By the way, my son wanted thirds of this dish!

Sweet Potato/Kale/Sausage Hot Dish

1-2 medium to large sweet potatoes (depending on how much hot dish you'd like to make)

1 medium onion, peeled and chopped

1-2 gloves or per your preference of garlic, minced (I tend to use a lot of garlic)

5-6 big leaves of Kale, cutting out the rib and slice into shreds

12-16oz of Polish Sausage (I used Polish, but you could use whatever you have or is on sale, turkey or chicken sausage would be good here too)

Salt and Pepper to taste (I tend to lean more towards the pepper for seasoning)

A dash or two of Balsamic Vinegar

First, peel and shred the sweet potato with a grater. If you have a food processor it could be done in there too.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and toast the garlic for a minute on medium heat. Then add the sweet potato and chopped onion. Add in the sausage or meat of your choice. Let the ingredients cook down for about 8-10 minutes.

Once the potatoes have cooked, add in the kale and let cook down. I let mine cook for about 3-5 more minutes.

Season with a little salt and pepper and drizzle in the Balsamic Vinegar and it is ready to be served! You can eat it alone for a light meal or add a side salad to it. It would also be great with some nice bread.
