Sweet Potato and Sausage Stew
with cheese toast points

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min

Sweet, savory and spicy (if you use a spicy sausage), this great cool-weather stew comes together in a flash with minimal prep. The stew is filling on its own, but we can't resist dipping cheese toast wedges in the flavorful broth.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. Add potatoes and sausage and saute to break sausage apart and allow it to release oil, 3 to 4 minutes more.
  4. Pour in tomato paste, stock and bay leaves. Simmer stew until potatoes are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. 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.
  6. Slice cheese toast into quarters.
  7. 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.
  8. Ladle stew into bowls and top with yogurt. Serve with cheese toast on the side and enjoy!

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 well

Made vegetarian version but added one spicy sausage. Super delicious! Family is not crazy about lentils, but they didn't even know they were there! Lentils are a fantastic soup thickener and so healthy. No need to blend with a immersion blender! Will definitely make again.

Very enjoyable. Added some farro for extra texture and flavor. Used mild sausage - next time will try something a bit spicier for extra flavor.
