This is a recipe I found on a fitness website. I made it because I love the 3 main ingredients and it looked quick and easy to make. Instead of using lemon juice and maple syrup to sweeten the dish, I simply added Papa Vince Extra Virgin Lemon Olive Oil and it was delicious! It was so good, I had to share the recipe!
Preparation: 15 minutes, Cook Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients for 4 persons
4 sausages (I used turkey, you can use pork or veggie if you prefer)
2 cups of cubed sweet potato
4 cups of kale, torn into small pieces
1 red bell pepper (cut into small cubes)
1 tablespoon Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Papa Vince Lemon Olive Oil
Papa Vince Sea Salt
Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
1. Cook the sausages. I prefer to grill and then cut them into small slices.
2. Drizzle Papa Vince EVOO in a large skillet & place over a medium-high heat.
Add the sweet potato cubes and stir until they start to sizzle. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the pan so the sweet potatoes steam. Cook for about 10 minutes until they are tender.
3. Add the red bell pepper & cook for 2 or 3 minutes before you add in the kale.
4. Stir all the ingredients together and season with Papa Vince Sea Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (just a pinch, if desired ... a little goes a long way)!
5. Drizzle liberally with Papa Vince Lemon Olive Oil just before serving.
This is a recipe that was shared by one of our loyal Papa Vince customers. They joined us on our Olive Harvest Tour in Sicily last year and came back with a love in their hearts for Sicily and all things Papa Vince.
We love our customers to share their healthy recipe ideas with us and we can't wait to try this dish ourselves, what better combination than chicken, spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms.
We met Teresa in Messina who invited us into her beautiful Italian home & showed us how to make some of her favorite family recipes. This Linguine recipe is one that she started making just to get creative in the kitchen. The combination of the anchovies and the omega 9 fatty acids in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil make this a health boosting recipe. If you're concerned about the linguine and want a more nutritious option, why not use Papa Vince Tumminia Pasta which is made with ancient grain and contains 6 times more fiber than regular pasta.
Pesce Stocco is an ancient Sicilian recipe that dates back to Norman times when Northern Europeans conquered Sicily and influenced their culture, landscape and cuisine. Pesce Stocco uses stockfish which is fish typical from Scandinavia.
Vitina met Teresa in Messina who showed her how to make a lighter & healthier version of this popular dish. She calls it a 'one pot fish dish!' You can also use a different type of fish just be sure that it's a meaty fish or you'll find that the fish cooks quicker than the potatoes. You know this dish is ready when the potatoes are soft.
