Warm Kale And Sweet Potato Salad With Veggie Sausage

This savory-sweet kale salad is just as appropriate for breakfast as it is for lunch or dinner. Cut the sweet potato cubes into 1/2-inch (1.27cm) squares so they cook quickly. The bright orange cubes look brilliant next to the deep green kale, which makes it a feast for the eyes.

Ingredients for servings


  • 2 pieces veggie sausage 1

  • 1 cup cubed sweet potato 4

  • 2 tsp ground sage 1

  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Take out the frozen sausage patties and let them thaw while you prep the salad.

  • Drizzle the olive oil in a large skillet and place over medium-high heat. Add the sweet potato cubes and stir until they start to sizzle. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the pan so the sweet potatoes steam. Cook for about 10 minutes, until they are tender when pierced with a paring knife.

  • Uncover the pan and add the kale, stirring to coat with oil. Add the sage and stir until the kale turns dark green.

  • Add the maple syrup and lemon juice and stir, just until the liquids coat the vegetables. Remove from heat and keep warm.
