Happy Wednesday guys! The recipe of the day is here – Sweet Potato Noodles with Kale & Pork – absolutely lovely and comforting meal, ready in just a few minutes!
And on top of that my kids loved it, even the kale, yes! Well, probably because it was kind of mixed with the sweet potatoes, but they really liked this recipe.
This is a really simple dish, all you need is sweet potatoes, kale and pork.
I also added some pine nuts, just for a crunch, and it tasted even better.
The pork I used was a leftover from a bbq the previous day so it’s up to you what to use. It’s a great way to use your leftover food, well pork in this case! And to make things more healthier I stirred in some kale, which by the way I love, unfortunately can’t say the same for the rest of my family. 🙂 Even though I do feed them with it and don’t give up. They like it sometimes but other times are not that keen. 🙂
By the way, did you go out today? I froze my bones off! It felt like Winter. Seriously, this is not fair. It’s Spring time, it’s supposed to be warm and sunny most of the time, right? Now that I’m looking at the pics of the Sweet Potato Noodles with Kale & Pork I wish I had a bowl in front of me. That would really warm me up. 🙂 Yumm..
I should probably hold on my Spring recipes and look back into my winter warmers 🙂 Just joking, hopefully this cold wave is gone soon.
Back to the food now…
Here’s what you need for this simple but delicious recipe – Sweet Potato Noodles with Kale & Pork.
- 1 large sweet potato, cut with a spiralizer
- 100g kale
- 300g leftover pork (anything you fancy)
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1tsp turmeric
- 1tsp cinnamon

- 1tbsp olive oil

- Heat a pan with the olive oil and sweat the garlic for a few minutes.

- Add the kale and pork, season with the spices and sprinkle the pine nuts.
- Mix well and leave for another 5 minutes.

Tip: It’s important not to overcook the sweet potato, otherwise they’ll get mushy and won’t be really noodles anymore (done that, not that they’re not tasty, it’s just a different meal) 🙂
