Kale, Bacon and Butternut Squash One Pot Wonder
March 12, 2012
Monday again… how did that happen?
A quick post today as I am in for a busy day, this is something I made last week for a quick healthy dinner with the aim to use up a big bag a kale we had.
1 small-medium butternut squash or large sweet potato, cut into bite size chunks
1 bag of kale (200g ish)
1 pack of thick cute smoked bacon, chopped
a few sprigs of rosemary (leave in tact) and thyme (leaves stripped) and a couple of sage leaves
3 large shallots, peeled and cut into quarters
250ml vegetable stock
some tasty bread to serve
1. First heat up some olive oil in a large saucepan, then add the bacon and fry until cooked through. Then add the squash and shallots and your herbs and fry until the edges are nicely brown.
2. Add the stock and cover, leaving to simmer for 15 minutes or until the squash is cooked through.
3. Finally remove the rosemary and then add the kale and stir through, cover again and leave for 2 minutes.
Serve with some bread and butter.
Having eaten this between three people I think it can be seen as more of a side dish but it is a great healthy and tasty meal, if not massively filling.
