Golden Beets and Brats with Baby Kale
If you’ve never thought to pair brats with beets, you’ve been missing out. The natural sweetness of the beets marries perfectly with the seasoning in the brats. Toss in some baby kale and sweet peppers for an entrée that’s not only a feast for the eyes, but a delight to eat as well. Plus, knowing that it takes just 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish is also a treat.
Toss beets with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil; season with salt and black pepper. Sauté beets and onions in same pan until beginning to soften, 8 minutes.
Stir in peppers, garlic, and pepper flakes; cook until garlic is fragrant, 1 minute.
Deglaze pan with broth and bring to a simmer. Add kale and brat meat; cook until kale wilts and meat is heated through. Season beets and brats with salt and pepper.
So the brat meat gets distributed throughout the dish, remove it from the casing and crush while cooking.
Spiralizing beets is easy, but since they’re pretty hard, apply firm, even pressure for the best spirals.
