Fall Mash Up

I’m not really sure what to call this recipe because most of the time I don’t really follow one.  I had all of this stuff banging around my kitchen and BL requested sweet potatoes with our steak.  But I was bored of mashed sweet potatoes, and lately I haven’t had good luck with making them the cripsy way BL likes them, so I started inventing.

To begin, you will need

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced.  I used a mandolin to slice the potatoes but you can do it with a knife
  • 2 large acorn squash, peeled and diced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 + cloves of garlic (I put them in the garlic press)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 pkg frozen kale (you can use fresh!)

Assemble your chopped ingredients and heat olive oil in a large pot.

Add your sweet potatoes…

and it’s VERY orange.  Cover it up and cook on medium-high, stirring often, until potatoes begin to mass.  While you’re stirring and waiting, heat up your kale.  I used frozen kale that I found in the freezer, but you can use fresh as well.  In a microwave safe dish, add kale and 2 table spoons of water.  Heat for 4 minutes, stir and heat for another 4.  Set aside.

Add your minced up garlic and salt and pepper to the cooking mix..  Cook on low for another 2-3 minutes.  Add kale, and stir.  Salt and pepper to taste.
