Kale with Sweet Potatoes and Pecans

If there’s a safe haven in the vegetable kingdom, it’s sweet potatoes. In fact, I bet that if every kid’s introduction to veggies were a sweet potato, it would knock down parental stress over healthy eating by at least 50 percent. I mean, what’s not to love? Sweet taste, beautiful color, and fantastic nutrition, not to mention a creamy texture that allows you to introduce chopped greens in a nonthreatening manner. Here, I’ve added kale, which has some outstanding anticancer properties, and ginger, which aids digestion, for a little zip.  Watch this video to see how quickly this nutrient dense dish comes together.



Kale with Sweet Potatoes and Pecans

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 cup peeled and finely diced
sweet potato or garnet yam
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup Magic Mineral Broth
(page 54) or water
3 cups cleaned, stemmed, and
chopped dinosaur kale, in
bite-size pieces
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons golden raisins
1/4 teaspoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons ground pecans, for garnish

Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat, then add the ginger
and sauté for 30 seconds, just until aromatic. Add the sweet potato,
cinnamon, and broth and sauté for about 1 minute. Add the kale, salt,
and raisins and sauté until the kale is a darker shade of green and the
sweet potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the maple syrup,
then do a FASS check and add another pinch of salt if desired.
Serve garnished with the ground pecans.

Variation: The ground pecans have the same texture as a sprinkling
of finely grated cheese. If you’d like something more crunchy,
place 1/4 cup of pecans on a baking sheet and toast at 350°F for 7 to
10 minutes, until aromatic and slightly browned. Chop coarsely before
sprinkling on this beautiful dish.

Prep Time: 15 minutes • Cook Time: 10 minutes
Storage: Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for 5 days.

Culinary Rx 

Kale is like a twenty-four-hour pharmacy unto itself. It possesses a variety of phytochemicals that attack different cancers. In one large study, women who ate diets rich in kaempferol (found in kale and other green vegetables such as broccoli, leeks, and spinach) were 40 percent less likely to develop ovarian cancer. Kale has similar effects on the development of bladder and breast cancers. Kale is also rich in numerous antioxidants that promote immune system wellness.
