Superfood Stew (Kale, Beets, Sweet Potatoes)

We had some kale & beets in the fridge and sweet potatoes on the counter, so my mission was to see what I could create to use them up…et voila, superfood stew!

♥ equipment needed: a heavy pot (i like my Le Creuset Dutch Oven)

cooking time: 1 hour


  • 1 bunch of Lacinto Kale (the curly kind), de-veined and chopped into
  • 1 Golden beet (the red ones turn everything red, which kind of looks ugly), peeled & diced into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3/4 can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup of green split peas
  • 1/2 spoon of green curry paste
  • 2 kafir lime leaves
  • 1 nib of galangal (optional–you can use regular ginger)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • a handful of peanuts

the method:

Chop up the veggies into pieces. Saute the onion, garlic & ginger paste in some olive oil. When translucent, add in the veggies and split peas. Cover with about 1 cup of water.  Cover pot and cook for about 1/2 hour-45 mins.

When the veggies are tender, add in the coconut milk, curry paste, and kafir lime leaves and simmer another 15-20 minutes.

Serve with some cooked quinoa.
