Polenta Kale and White Bean Stuffed Sweet Potato 


By Luna Peace

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Cook Time: 45 Minutes

Disclaimer: I don’t measure ingredients and I always tend to eyeball everything. Video here 

Ingredients

1 pound of dried cannellini beans (you can use canned as well)

3 sweet potatoes (I use garnet)

1 bag of frozen kale

1 red or white onion

2 cloves of garlic

½ jar of oil packed sun dried tomatoes

Italian seasoning

Salt

Pepper

Polenta (I used a box of instant polenta, but any will do)

Garlic powder

Onion powder

1 tbsp Fennel seeds

Trader Joes 21 Salute seasoning

Go veggie parm

Water

Directions

1. Rinse sweet potatoes, cut off ends and poke holes with a fork. Cook for about 45 minutes on 350.

2. Cook beans if you need to. I cook all my beans in an instant pot because it is quick. If you don’t have the time to cook beans, I suggest using canned.

3. Sautee garlic and onions with about ¼ cup of water.

4.  Add spices, herbs, salt and pepper. Cut sundried tomatoes and add to onion and garlic mixture.

5. Add package of frozen kale. Cover and reduce heat to low.

6. Cook polenta based on instructions. I added vegan parm and almond milk to them.

7. Add cooked or canned beans to the kale mixture. Mix and allow to cook on low.

8. Once sweet potatoes are done serve but cutting down the middle, added a spoonful of polenta and top with kale and bean mixture.

About Luna Peace

I guess you may wonder what Luna Peace is and where this name comes from. It's actually pretty silly and kind of outside the box. Luna Peace is my husbands hippie name that a I plucked from a Facebook pictorial. I fell in love with it and have been using it ever since. I decided Luna Peace would be a great blog name because it describes me in many ways! Luna: (Goddess) the ancient Roman divine personification of the Moon Peace: occurs between heterogeneous social groups and is characterized by a lack of conflict and freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility, peace often involves compromise, and therefore is initiated with thoughtful listening and communication to enhance and create mutual understanding. I see myself as a Goddess (as all woman should), and I definitely want peace. So let's get to it! This is my blog and I will use this platform to inform, encourage, and inspire you. Thank you for being here! ~Luna
