Sweet potato and collard green stew


  • 2 cups soup stock, bean cooking liquid, or water
  • 3 medium sweet potato or yam, peeled, chopped in bite size pieces
  • 4 cups chopped collard greens
  • 1 Tbsp (2 – 3 cloves) garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced (2 thin slices)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp brown mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp gr. coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp gr. cumin seeds (I had run out so I used chilli powder tonight)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp gr. fennel seed
  • 1/2 tsp gr. fenugreek seed (left this out since I did not have it)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • Optional: For more of a hot spicy taste, add 1 tsp green curry paste, or 1 tsp hot curry powder (I used not so hot curry powder)
  • 1 Tbsp Braggs Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste (left out)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk, light or full fat


  1. Peel & mince the garlic and ginger
  2. Peel and chop the sweet potato in bite sized pieces
  3. Wash and strip the leaves from 1 bunch of kale. Discard the stems. Chop the leaves in small pieces
  4. Heat the olive oil on medium low in a large dutch oven
  5. Sauté the garlic, ginger, and mustard seeds 5 minutes (I added chopped onion and shallots here)
  6. Add the sweet potatoes sauté 5 minutes
  7. Add the spices, stir for a minute to heat through
  8. Add the liquid, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 10 minutes or until veggies are tender (I added more water here)
  9. Cook collard greens in separate pot of water until soft, drain and mix in with sweet potatoes
  10. Add Braggs or soy sauce, and salt just before serving

Serves 4-6
