Sweet Potato and Kale with Chicken Apple Sausage

I am using the last of my food share vegetables. I still have a lot in the freezer and am thankful that I saved throughout the season! I had just a little bit of Kale left and needed to use it! 

See we are cleaning out our fridge for next week... we will be enjoying a week in beautiful CABO!!!! :) I do not want to waste and vegetables so I am coming up with new mixtures and combos! 

The Ingredients:
1/2 lb diced, peeled sweet potatoes

1 medium-sized bunch of kale
4 links Chicken and Apple, Applegate
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons minced shallot
1 clove of garlic, minced
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons whole grain dijon mustard
2 - 3 TBSP maple syrup
pinch of Cajun seasoning
salt, to taste

Place the sweet potatoes in a steamer pot. Steam for 10 minutes. 

Meanwhile, chop the kale to yield a half pound. Wash it, then add to the sweet potatoes in the pot a few minutes into the cooking time.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Slice the chicken sausage thinly and add to the skillet, cooking until browned on both sides. When the potatoes and kale are finished steaming and the sausage is browned, add the sausage to the bowl with the potatoes and kale. Set aside.

Add the olive oil to the skillet, and cook the shallots and garlic for one or two minutes. Add the cider vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, and Cajun seasoning. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Add the potatoes, kale, and sausage to the skillet and turn to coat and heat through. Season to taste with salt.

  5. Robert, thanks for stopping by! Another good way to use Kale (that is enjoyable!) is adding it into soups! Easy and adds great flavor!
