Kale & Sweet Potato Winter Mash (Ready In Minutes!)

There are multiple reasons why I love this recipe for a quick heartwarming winter lunch. It’s simple with only two main ingredients, easy to prepare, nutritious and tasteful! Perfect for a weekday.

Sweet Potato Mash with Kale and Pine Nuts

Servings: 2


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 6 big handfuls of chopped kale
  • a small handful of pine nuts
  • pinch of salt


Boil water in a pan fitted with a fan steamer. Peel the potatoes and cut them into small pieces. Place the potatoes in the steamer. Put a lid on and let them steam over medium heat for about 8 minutes.

After add the kale on top of the potatoes and continue steaming for another 4 minutes with the lid on.

In the meantime toast the pine nuts in a dry skillet, stirring frequently until golden.

When finished steaming, remove the potatoes and kale from the steamer into another sauce pan. Add a pinch of salt. Use a potato masher to mash. If necessary add a tablespoon of the cooking water to thin it out.

Serve in a bowl and top with the pine nuts.

Smell its sweetness and enjoy!
