Ive always loved Kale and its different varieties, have done for years. Love all greens really, but with the curly Kale option, I find it is so easy to just throw into any dish to give you that extra green oomph for your vitamins in a day. I eat it that much, maybe I should think of putting it on my growing list for my Kitchen Garden this year?
Recently I threw together a dish of “odd’s and sod’s” that were in my fridge and made a sublime little supper for myself. The recipe did of course, suprisingly involve Kale but in a rather different way…with Bacon and Egg.
I am always going to cook this recipe from now on as it is so quick, it uses things up and theres hardly any ingredients to it. You can tweak a few things but these ingredients work through being sweet, yet salty, all manners of different tastes.
If you are going to try this recipe, You must go and buy some Sriracha sauce first. I have been using it in my Asian cooking for years and it is my favourite Hot sauce. I drizzle it on a lot of foods including Hot spicy noodle broths. It seems now a lot of major sauce brands are trying a version them selves. I’ll never change my brand though.
So Here is my simple Supper, or maybe even a Brunch recipe? An easy dish for an occasion? With an optional Hot sauce.
Sweet Potato, Kale and Bacon Hash topped with Poached Egg:
(For 1 approximately)
– 1 Tbsp of Rapeseed oil
– 1/2 Tbsp of Maple syrup
– 1 large Garlic Clove finely diced
– 1/2 Red Onion sliced finely
– 1 Sweet potato diced roughly
– 1-2 rashers of Bacon chopped
– couple of small Handfuls of Curly Kale
– 1 egg for poaching
– 2 tbsp of White wine vinegar for the poaching
– To finish, some Sriracha Hot Chilli sauce for on top if required.
(I buy mine from Wang Fung Hong in Leicester)

* Take out the Sweet potato with a slotted spoon and place onto kitchen paper on a plate.Leaving the water in the saucepan for your Kale.
