Sweet Potato Kale Mash & Hazelnuts
An easy meal from basic ingredients, comfort food.
Servings: 2 portions
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked, steamed or baked / 300 grams I used white fleshed / purple skinned ones
- 2 regular potatoes, cubed and cooked / 250 grams
- 1 and 1/2 cups frozen kale or 130 grams / 6 cups finely chopped kale
- 1/2 cup sauerkraut, chopped I like to rinse my sauerkraut a little to remove excess salt
- 1 medium onion
- 20 hazelnuts
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 cup water
- pinch of nutmeg
Saute the chopped onion in a few tbsp of water until translucent. Add in the frozen or fresh kale, water, cover with a lid and cook until soft. I like to cook it in some vegetable broth to give it a deeper flavor.
Most of the water is evaporated when done, if there is still much water you can pour it through a sieve. Add the kale back in the pan and mash the cooked sweet and regular potatoes through the kale. Flavor with sea salt, pepper, nutmeg and onion powder.
Mix the sauerkraut through the mash without cooking it to keep the good bacteria alive. The sauerkraut adds a great salty flavor and texture. Serve with chopped hazelnuts on top.
