Chewsday Tuesday: Sausage, Kale & Sweet Potato Skillet

Just like that, another Chewsday Tuesday is upon us! What did you guys think of that Strawberry dessert last week? Heaven, am I right? Parterning with New South Coop for their weekly CSA boxes is a major highlight of my week and this week’s box did not disappoint! We’re switching gears this week to serve up a super simple savery, one-pot dinner packed with nutrients and flavor. Let’s get right to it!

This recipe will save you so much time when you rush home for dinner, you may end up making it a few times a week. You can always mix around some of the ingredients here, so feel free to mix and match however you’d like.

Kale is such a great source of vitamins and minerals that our bodies crave and need on a daily basis. It’s rich in Vitamin C and beta-carotene (which are among the best antioxidants we can have). Kale is also a great source four heart health, cancer prevention, brain development, and healthy vision! It even has anti-inflammatory properties! Are you convinced you need some kale in your life yet?

Here’s what you’ll need:

1) 2 full sized sweet potatoes (depending on how many you’d like to serve)

2) 1 Bundle of kale

3) 3 TBS olive oil

4) 1/4 to 1/2 organic chicken broth

5) Turkey Sausage (Or Chicken Sausage))

6) Salt

*Spirazlier* (You can always cube the sweet potatoes if you don’t have a spiralizer on hand.)

*You can also substitute kale for spinach and the meat for any type of meat you’d like. The sausage has great flavor though!)

Total Time: 20(ish) minutes

Prep Time: 5-7 minutes

Cook Time: 12-15 minutes

Serves: 2

Step 1) Slice your sausage into 1/2 inch thin slices. Then, add 1 TBS of Olive oil to your pan and add the sausage. Heat over medium heat.

You’ll want to brown each side evenly. You can also season here with salt/pepper.

Step 2) Set your sausage aside and go ahead and spiralize your sweet potatoes noodles. (I used two full sized sweet potatoes and it served a good amount of noodles. Adjust according to how many you’ll be serving.)

After you’re done spiralizing, start chopping your kale.

Step 3) Add 2 TBS of olive oil to your saucepan and top with the sweet potato noodles and kale. Let these cook down in the olive oil for about 5 minutes. You can also add a sprinkle of salt here too for extra flavor.

Step 4) Once the veggies are soft, add your chicken broth. Saute here for another 3-4 minutes.

Step 5) Last step is to add your sausage back to pan and mix everything around. Let it warm the sausage back up and season with the flavor for a few minutes.

Step 6) Serve, and Enjoy!
