Roasted Sweet Potato Kale Salad

Getting Acquainted with Kale!

The immediate thought when people hear the word “kale” is “yuck!” However, unknown to most it's crunchy, delicious, and adds much more flavor (and nutrients, of course!) when added to a meal! Here’s a simple and yummy recipe to get you and kale a little more acquainted!


Grocery List:

  • 1 lb sweet potato

  • 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • 4.5 cups of curly kale

  • 16 oz can chickpeas

  • 1-2 tsp avocado or olive oil

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 1 cup roasted pumpkin seeds


Chickpea Seasoning Blend:

  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika

  • ¼ tsp garlic powder

  • ¼ tsp ground cayenne pepper

  • ⅛ tsp ground cumin

  • ⅛ tsp black pepper


Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

  2. Peel and cube your sweet potatoes (or pre-cut is ok, too!) and toss with 1-2 tbsp of your choice of oil. Season with salt and pepper and place in a single layer on a greased or lined baking sheet. Set a timer for 15 minutes.

  3. Wash, dry, and chop kale getting rid of the “spines.” Add to a large bowl and drizzle kale with 1 tsp of your favorite healthy oil and a pinch of salt. Massage with your fingers until kale darkens in color and takes on a velvety texture. This mini rubdown turns dry kale into a tender, delicious, and cruciferous green! Set aside to munch on in a bit!

  4. Chickpea prep! Drain, rinse and blot dry with a few paper towels. Toss with 2 tsp of your choice of oil and season with ¼ tsp of salt. Place them on a baking sheet and spread them out a bit.

  5. After the sweet potatoes have been roasting for approximately 15 minutes, add your chickpeas to the oven and set a timer for 20 minutes. The sweet potatoes will continue to roast to perfection with the chickpeas crisping up, too!

  6. After 20 minutes, pull both the sweet potatoes and the chickpeas from the oven and sprinkle the chickpea seasoning blend over top of them both and mix together!

  7. Combine kale, sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and pumpkin seeds for a mouth-watering salad full of vitamins and minerals! Add some grilled chicken or salmon on top for an added protein boost!

Enjoy!
