Kale & Sweet Potato Hash

Maria Steinhauer


For this recipe, I pair kale with my love for sweet potatoes creating a healthy vegetarian dish that pleases your taste buds and your colon.

The fiber-rich vegetables in this dish promote healthy digestion and colon health. 


Ingredients (Serves 2):

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 cups kale, stems removed/chopped
  • 2 cups sweet potato, julienned (matchstick size) (about 1 large potato)
  • 3 tbsp onions, diced
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic, minced (2-3 cloves)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp course ground pepper


  1. Melt coconut oil in pan on medium heat. Saute onions for about 30 seconds.
  2. Then add sweet potatoes, garlic, sea salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes, covered, stirring occasionally. Add another tbsp of oil and lower heat a little if potatoes start to stick to the pan.
  3. Add kale and cook covered, stirring occasionally, for an additional 5 minutes or until sweet potatoes reach desired softness. Kale should still be bright green (not dark & wilty).
  4. Add extra sea salt and pepper if desired, and serve warm!
