Did you get a chance to read our post about the healing power of cinnamon? Today we’re going to add some of that nutritious, delicious cinnamon to a recipe that fits right into the fall season, although it’s so yummy you’ll likely want to make it year round. It incorporates onion, apple, herbs, pork chop, kale, walnuts, and you guessed it, cinnamon. If you’d like to tie more carbs into the dish, boil and mash up some sweet potatoes and top the mash with the sauteed goodness.
This recipe serves 2.
Apple, Pork & Kale Saute
1-2 tbsp cooking fat (bacon, duck, butter, ghee, coconut oil)
1 medium yellow or red onion, diced
1 medium sweet-tart apple (like honeycrisp), diced
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 cooked small boneless pork chops (or 1 big chop), diced
4 cups chopped kale
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
sea or mineral salt & pepper
Melt the cooking fat over medium heat in a large skillet. Once melted, add the onion and apple, and saute until the onion starts to turn translucent, and the apple softens.
Add the oregano, thyme, and cinnamon. Stir the ingredients around in the pan, incorporating the spices. Add the pork and kale, and cook until the kale wilts to your liking, stirring often. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Plate it, top with walnuts, and eat it!
