Vegan Waffled Grilled Cheese With Kale And Sweet Potatoes


Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 2 slices of whole grain bread
  • 4 tablespoons Kite Hill cream cheese spread
  • 1 cup kale

1. Prepare sweet potato either baking at 400 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour or by microwaving for 6-8 minutes.

3. Heat up olive oil in a small pan on medium-low heat. Add kale, and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes until kale is wilted. Add on top of sweet potato, and cover with other piece of bread. Slice sandwich in half.

4. Spray waffle iron with a little bit of olive oil or coconut oil. Add sandwich halves to waffle iron, and close. Cook for 1-2 minute until bread becomes crisp and golden. Serve warm.
