Sweet Potato, Kale, and Apple Hash
I recommend starting with all of your ingredients prepped - it will make this recipe a breeze! This hash is not only a great way to start your day, but also makes a great side or potluck dish, or just a healthy snack at home!
  • two medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced to under ½"
  • one sweet onion, diced to under ½"
  • two medium apples, diced to under ½"
  • 1 bunch lacinato kale, sliced into thin ribbons and then roughly chopped
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1 t sweet paprika
  • 1 t fresh lemon juice
  • salt + pepper, to taste
  1. Heat a large sauce pan or skillet over medium-high heat. When it is preheated, add extra virgin olive oil.
  2. When the olive oil is shimmering, tilt the pan to coat it with the oil.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes and onions. Let brown for 5 minutes. Then stir once, flipping the potatoes and onions to brown and cook the other sides.
  4. After a few more minutes, test a piece of sweet potato (by eating it!). You are ready for the next step when it's tender.
  5. Add the cumin and paprika and stir.
  6. Add the apples and stir.
  7. Add the kale, distribute the lemon juice evenly over the kale, and stir the whole mixture together.
  8. Cook until the kale wilts (cover for a minute if it needs a little help), and take a taste to see if you want to add salt or pepper. Start with pepper - and I bet you won't need much salt - it's pretty flavorful!
