  • 2 large sweet potatoes .....Cooking time will vary, depending on size.
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper


  • Heat oven to 425.  Poke holes in sweet potatoes, then microwave on potato setting for 10 minutes in oven/microwave safe dish.  
  • After 10 minutes in microwave, finish roasting in oven until potatoes are fork tender - about 20 minutes.
  • While potatoes are roasting, prepare kale.  Remove all stems from kale and roughly chop.  Wash kale thoroughly.  
  • Heat pan on medium heat and add 1/4 cup of coconut oil.  Add washed kale and saute until kale gets slightly charred - about 5-7 minutes.  If the kale is not charring, increase heat to medium - high and cook for another minute.
  • After about 5-7 minutes add cranberries, slivered almonds, and salt and pepper. Saute for 1-2 minutes to heat everything through.  Turn off heat and set aside.  Cover to keep warm.
  • Remove sweet potatoes from oven when fork tender.
  • Cut sweet potatoes down the middle.  Be careful - they will be very hot.  Load the sweet potatoes with the kale, cranberries, and almonds.  The coconut oil will saturate the sweet potato and add that perfect flavor.  
  • Enjoy!
