Here is a unique, healthy vegan recipe that is so delicious and comforting.  We call it Baked Beans with Sweet Potatoes and Crispy Kale.  The flavors and textures of this dish work so well in perfect harmony.  This vegan recipe is perfect for dinner on its own, or it’ll work well as a side dish too.

The sauce that goes in this dish is really sweet and tasty.  It’s got organic brown sugar, cinnamon, soy sauce, mustard powder, and cayenne (gotta get that kick!).  It works really well with the beans, giving them that awesome sweet baked beans taste.

Oh, and that crispy kale.. yummm.  If you are a fan of kale you’ll certainly love it cooked this way if you haven’t tried it before.  If you’re not the biggest kale fan, you may change your mind after having it crispy.  The crispy kale really adds a nice element of texture and taste to this recipe.
