I'm no nutritionist, but I would say this recipe covers your basic food groups! Sometimes my inspiration for a meal comes simply from foods my husband doesn't like. As he was out of town this particular night, I thought sweet potatoes were a must and I was craving something earthy-enter kale. My husband would probably move kale out of "earthy" and place it in the "mortal sin" category, so its not something I regularly cook with.


The end result was a fairly healthy and satisfying dinner in approximately 2 hours(including prep time). Enjoy!
