Sweet Potato and Sausage Stew
with cheese toast points
- Sweet potatoes - 2, chopped
- Onions - 1, chopped
- Kale - 3 leaves, leaves and stems chopped and separated
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
- Sausage, Italian and raw (use mild or spicy) - 12 oz
- Tomato paste - 3 Tbsp
- Stock, any type - 3 cups
- Bay leaves - 2
- Lemon juice - 1 tsp
- Yogurt, plain or Greek - 1/4 cup
- Bread, sandwich (a thick-sliced loaf will work well) - 4 slices
- Oil, olive - 1 Tbsp
- Cheese, Swiss - 4 slices
- Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees.
- Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then onions, kale stems and a pinch of salt. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes, until softened.
- Add potatoes and sausage and saute to break sausage apart and allow it to release oil, 3 to 4 minutes more.
- Pour in tomato paste, stock and bay leaves. Simmer stew until potatoes are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
- While stew simmers, place toast on a sheet pan. Brush with olive oil and top with cheese slices. Bake in the oven until toast is golden around the edges and cheese is melted, 5 to 6 minutes.
- Slice cheese toast into quarters.
- When stew is done, remove from heat and stir in kale leaves and lemon juice. Taste and season with some salt and pepper and more lemon juice, if needed.
- Ladle stew into bowls and top with yogurt. Serve with cheese toast on the side and enjoy!

Good base, pretty easy to make. Would add more spices if we make again.0 Helpful
Super simple & tasty!0 Helpful
Maybe 4 stars with a spicier sausage. It faded as leftover rather than getting better, as most stews do.0 Helpful
Used 20 oz sweet sausage, 1/2 cup lentils and substituted spinach because that is what I had on had. Loved this! Husband had 3 bowls!0 Helpful
Thought it needed something at end so I added teaspoon salt and lots of parsley :) I thought it was great for time being short to make it and freezing well0 Helpful
