In a medium bowl stir together the sauce ingredients. Dice the sweet potatoes however you like. Add them to a large baking dish. Drain and rinse the beans, and add them to the baking dish.
Drizzle the sauce mixture onto the sweet potatoes and beans.
Brush the barbecue sauce on top of the sweet potatoes and beans.
Massage and squeeze the kale for about 1 minute, and add it on top of the potatoes and beans.
Drizzle about 1T of oil (if using) onto the kale. Sprinkle salt & pepper on the top.
Bake at 400°F for 45 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are the perfect texture for your liking.
