Garlicky Sweet Potato and Collard Greens

The other weekend I went to go visit with my dad, and as an attempt to get him started with vegan cooking, I made him one of my favorite go-to meals, garlicky sweet potatoes and collard greens. This meal shatters all meat-eaters beliefs that you can’t have a simple and tasty, yet filling meal, without the meat. You can have this prepared within 30 minutes, and you can cater it to your personal tastes- cheesy, spicy, asian or sweet- so add it to your recipe box. Luckily for me, my dad loved it, and I am one step closer to getting him on the plant-food train ♥

If you are a newbie to plant-based cooking, this recipe is for you, The Holy Kale will not let you down! Plus, use the basis of this recipe to make variations- switch up sweet potatoes for yukon gold, switch collard greens to kale, switch green cabbage for purple or napa, and even add some grains like quinoa, jasmine or black rice- the options are really endless!

      Hi Colleen – nutritional yeast is high in B vitamins, especially B-12, and also in protein. Therefore, it is a very important food to consume when you are focusing on a plant-based diet, as protein, and especially B12 are harder to get. In addition, it also increases glutathione levels in the liver, which aids in liver detoxification. Plus – it tastes amazing!!!
