  • catherine cuello from greenhopping serving her sweet potato kale and chives recipe foodadit

This dish is great for replacing a heavily-loaded plate full of empty carbs. Sweet Potatoes are a great source of vitamins A and C. If you can get hold of purple potatoes, these work really well too, and they're crammed with antioxidants such as anthocyanin. When I cook, I always add the olive oil at the end for flavour to avoid cooking it.


  • 12–15 sweet or purple potatoes
  • 1 packet baby kale
  • 1 bunch chives
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a lot of olive oil (to make it soft)

Here’s how you make it

  1. Boil the potatoes until they are cooked.
  2. Wash the baby kale and then sauté it in water, pepper and lemon until it softens.catherine-cuello-washing-kale-for-her-sweet-potato-kale-and-chives-recipe-foodadit
