This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is – Potatoes and Collard Greens with Vegan Sausage. Yukon Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Collard Greens, and Vegan Sausage make up this week’s recipe! It’s from one of my favorite recipe sites – CooksRecipes. The Cooks site is loaded with recipes to please all tastes so check it out today! Enjoy and eat Healthy! http://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

 

Potatoes and Collard Greens with Vegan Sausage
Greens often come out on top of healthy food lovers’ must-eat lists. The dark leafy greens are still crave-worthy in March, until such time as the lighter and leafier spring greens arrive.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 medium-large Yukon gold or red-skinned potatoes
1 large sweet potato
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 good-sized bunch collard greens or kale
2 links Tofurkey or Field Roast vegan sausage, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1/4 cup dry white wine or water
Leaves from 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 1 to 2 teaspoons dried rosemary leaves, to taste
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/4 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes, or to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

1 – Cook, bake, or microwave the potatoes and sweet potatoes until they can be pierced with a fork but still firm. When cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch-thick half circles.
2 – Cut away the thick midribs from the greens and cut the leaves in half lengthwise. Rinse well, then, stacking several leaves at a time, cut them into strips.
3 – Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and sauté over low heat until golden.
4 – Add the potatoes, collards, sausage, and wine. Turn the heat up to medium high and cook, stirring frequently, until the collards are bright green and tender-crisp and the potatoes and sausage are touched with golden spots here and there.
5 – Sprinkle in the rosemary, paprika, and red pepper flakes and cook for two to three minutes longer, stirring frequently. Season with salt and ground black pepper and serve.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili
Make a double batch of this quick vegetarian chili, full of black beans and sweet potatoes, and eat it for lunch the next day or freeze the extras for another night. We love the smoky heat from the ground chipotle, but omit it if you prefer a mild chili. Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread and coleslaw……..

 

Inside-Out Lasagna
Here we take basic lasagna ingredients—ricotta cheese, pasta and tomatoes—and skip the layering and long baking time to make a super-quick and satisfying meal for the whole family. To cut down on prep time, look for presliced mushrooms. For meat lovers, brown some crumbled turkey sausage along with the onions and garlic. Serve with: Steamed broccoli and whole-grain baguette…….

 

Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad
For a satisfying last-minute supper, it’s hard to beat a sweet potato zapped in the microwave. The fragrant filling of beans and tomatoes adds protein. Be sure to eat the skin, which is full of fiber, as well……

What Is The Difference Between A Sweet Potato And A Yam?

July 15, 2017 at 5:05 AM | Posted in sweet potatoes | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

I was curious was there a difference between a Sweet Potato and Yam? The answer: YES. I came across the Sweet Potato website (http://www.ncsweetpotatoes.com/) and found the answer. I’ve also found an excellent website that gives you everything you need to know about the Sweet Potato along with a good selection of recipes. Enjoy and check the site out!

Yam vs. Sweet Potato:

A true yam is a starchy edible root of the Dioscorea genus, and is generally imported to America from the Caribbean. It is rough and scaly and very low in beta carotene.

Depending on the variety, sweet potato flesh can vary from white to orange and even purple. The orange-fleshed variety was introduced to the United States several decades ago. In order to distinguish it from the white variety everyone was accustomed to, producers and shippers chose the English form of the African word “nyami” and labeled them “yams.”

Today the U.S. Department of Agriculture requires labels with the term ‘yam’ to be accompanied by the term ‘sweet potato.’ Despite the label regulations, most people still think of sweet potatoes as yams regardless of their true identity.
