Author Notes: This recipe was discovered by my sister and I when we were trying to make lunch out of random things in our fridge. It ended up being one of our favorite go-to lunches, especially in the winter when we don't want to go out in the cold! Note: this recipe is made for one person but can be changed for as many people as desired. —Sarah
Serves 1 person
- 1 cup fresh kale
- 1/2 cooked sweet potato
- 1/2 white onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 teaspoons garlic grape seed oil
- Juice of a lemon wedge
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- Chop the onions and set aside.
- Pour the olive oil into a sauté pan and turn the heat on to medium low.
- Let the oil heat until it sizzles (I splash a few sprinkles of water to test the oil to see if it is ready).
- Add the onions and let them cook until they are a light brown.
- Add the sweet potato and cook until it turns golden.
- Add the kale, lemon juice and the grape seed oil.
- Add a pinch of salt and pepper and mix the ingredients together until the kale is reduced and a dark green.
- Turn off the heat and enjoy.
