sweet potato, chorizo & kale hash

I mentioned in my post about Kopapa that I wanted to try and recreate the dish I chose – the chorizo hash. Well, often these intentions get put on the back-burner, but I actually managed to make this happen in a timely manner!

This is honestly one of the simplest, yet nutritious (2 superfoods!) & delicious meals that I’ve made, and it takes about 20 minutes in total. It would make a great packed lunch, an easy yet filling brunch, or even a quick weekday dinner. Am I selling it to you yet?

I’m not a huge fan of potatoes (except when they’re in the form of fries, because of course.), so I always dismissed sweet potatoes as something I wouldn’t be keen on – but being bombarded constantly with information about all the health benefits of these things, I finally got round to including them in my shopping from time to time. And now I’m a convert! Using them in savoury dishes means I enjoy that sweet/salty combination that I love, and they are very versatile and extremely filling. Plus, I think the colour is beautiful, which is always a bonus.

Are there any sweet potato recipes you can share with me to expand my repertoire?

Sweet Potato, Chorizo & Kale Hash

Ingredients: {for 2-3 servings}

salt & pepper

To make:
1) Boil the cubed sweet potato for about 5-7 minutes, until tender.
2) Steam the kale in the microwave for 1 minute.
3) Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan, cook the red onion, garlic & chorizo until a little browned.
4) Add the sweet potato, and a generous sprinkle of smoked paprika. Shake it around and let the flavours mix together.
