Kale and "Sausage" Hash

I've been super busy lately: out shooting from the hip with my holga, taking a painting class at the local community college (gotta love those continuing education classes!), still trying to finish a few quilts (I should probably finish them before the babies I am making them for graduate high school or something), and writing, writing, writing!

But a girls gotta eat, so I've been making simple fast foods like this hash, which there a bazillion different variations on. That's why I love them: chop up some potatoes, add whatever is on hand, saute everything in some oil until heated and crispy and voila: a filling and delicious meal that doesn't break the bank and only takes about 30 minutes to make.

Kale and "Sausage" Hash

1 bunch of dinosaur kale, roughly chopped
2 Tbs olive oil
1 white onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 large white rose potatoes, cubed into 1/4" cubes
2 Field Roast chipotle sausages*, cut into 1/4" circles
pinch of ground nutmeg
1 tsp herbes de provence
1/8 tsp chili powder
Salt to taste
Nutritional yeast (optional)

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. add the onion and saute for 5 minutes, or until the onion starts to turn translucent. Add the garlic and the nutmeg, herbes de provence, and chili powder, and saute for another 5 minutes, until the garlic cooks, but doesn't brown. Add the potatoes and sausage and cook for about 15 or until the potatoes start to become tender. Add the kale, turn heat up to medium/high and cook for another 5 minutes until kale starts to wills and potatoes turn brown and crispy. You made to add a little more oil, but that's ok. Salt to taste and serve in bowls. Top with nutritional yeast if desired.

*really, any vegan sausage can be used. if you don't like sweating while you eat because of the heat, I suggest using something other than the chipotle
