This is my first time using sweet potatoes for anything! Let me start out by saying I don’t really like sweet potatoes or kale – but the photos I saw of the colorful, appetizing end product convinced me. Don’t start when you’re already hungry. Between the peeling, steaming, and baking, this recipe from The Balanced Platter took me the better part of two hours. And I don’t have a steamer, so I had to get creative.
