  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter, plus 3 tablespoons melted
  • 1 Tbsp fine sea salt
  • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 medium baking apples, peeled, cored, and cut into quarters
  • 6 cups loosely packed braising greens (kale, chard, collards), stems removed, torn into 2-inch strips

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
    On foil-lined baking sheet, toss potato slices with 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Bake until cooked through and slightly caramelized, about 20 minutes. Keep warm.

  3. In heavy large pot over moderate heat, combine remaining 2 tablespoons butter and 3 tablespoons water. Add greens and sauté, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 5 minutes.
  4. Lower heat to moderately low and add sweet potatoes and apples. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in parsley, remaining 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper.
  5. Serve hot.
