Kale Sweet Potato Mash

I made this recipe from Clean Eating magazine the other day.  I like it a lot, but the baby LOVES it.  I put it in refillable pouches (I have these) and she sucks it down.  A great way to get in some extra greens!  The servings are adult servings though.  I think it would be 3 servings for each of us (so 3 adult, 3 13 month old servings) if we wanted to have it together.  I’ll probably have 2 since she’s loving it so much.  Food has been a bit of a struggle lately with most taking a trip to the floor, so if she likes it and it’s healthy, I’ll definitely take less!

Kale Sweet Potato Mash
serves 4 adults

Ingredients –
-2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
-8oz chopped kale (about 7 cups)
-1/4 cup almond milk
-1TBSP raw honey
-1/4tsp sea salt

Instructions –
-Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
-Add potatoes to boiling water.  Cover, reduce heat to medium high and cook for 10 min
-Add kale, cover and cook for 10 more min, until potatoes and kale are soft.  Drain and return to pot.
-Add milk, honey and salt.  Either roughly mash with a wooden spoon or, if you’re putting it in pouches, use an immersion blender to smooth it out (I didn’t fully puree it…there are still decent chunks but it has been soft enough to get out of the pouch so far).

Not the best picture, but it was super tasty!
