Cauliflower Kale and Sweet Potato Bites

I AM OBSESSED WITH THESE OMG. This is one of those recipes that is so good for you but doesn’t taste healthy, you know what I mean. Its the best of both worlds and if all  healthy food tasted like this I’d be way skinnier. First of all, the ingredients: kale YUM, cauliflower, FUCK YA. And sweet potato, not my favourite, but it works very well in this application. Flavoured with garlic, onion salt and pepper thats it. I can’t wait for you guys to try this recipe, and don’t forget to tag @Jellybeaneats on instagram!

I will be taking pictures outside with the natural lighting for as long as I can. In fact it was snowing while I took this picture.

See indoor lighting is so not the same, urg. Here I am breaking up the kale with my hands into very small pieces. I’ve heard massaging the kale makes it softer, so I gave it a try! Maybe its more noticeable in a salad because I couldn’t tell the difference in these bites.

Ricing cauliflower is very easy, just cut the cauliflower into big florets and then grate them on the small side of the cheese grater. Thats it!

I am so excited to share with you this delicious and healthy recipe for cauliflower, sweet potato and kale bites! Try it tonight, I know you’ll love it!

 

Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato or 2 small, pealed and chopped
1 bunch of kale, finely chopped 1 head cauliflower, riced
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 egg yolk (optional: use the white to bread it)
Panko bread crumbs (optional)

Directions:

Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the potatoes. Cook them until fork tender ~ 15 minutes but depends on the size of your pieces. Once they are fork tender, drain them of all the water and mash them. Put aside to cool. Take the cauliflower turn upside down, use a knife to cut out the hard part. Then it will be easy to break apart the florets. Use a grater to grate the cauliflower and you’ll be left with what looks like little grains of rice. For the kale wash it and then use your hands to break it up into small pieces, or use a knife. In a large pan add oil, garlic and onion. Cook on medium-high for a minute and then add the kale. Cook till kale is wilted down. Then in a large bowl mix together the mashed potato, sautéed kale and raw riced cauliflower. Salt to taste and add the yolk of one egg. If you want to bread them use the white of the egg and Panko crumbs. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, flipping half way.

Enjoy
