Sweet Potato and Kale Salad with Creamy Curry Dressing
For this salad I find the yellow fleshed sweet potatoes work best rather than the garnet yams. When working with these sweet potatoes I recommend cooking them as soon as they are peeled otherwise they tend to discolor in spots. The potatoes take approximately 15 minutes to steam and the kale approximately 8 minutes. Let the vegetables cool before combining with the dressing and you will have a surprisingly flavorful side dish.
2 large sweet potatoes
½ bunch red or Dino kale, stems removed, leaves coarsely chopped
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tsp curry powder
½ tsp ground cumin
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
Heat the Combi steam oven in the Steam mode 212 degrees.
Place the prepped potatoes in the solid pan and add a ¼ cup of water, cook the potatoes for 15 minutes until tender but not falling apart. Cool before combining with the kale and dressing.
Place the kale leaves in the perforated pan and steam for approximately 8 minutes until the leaves have softened. Remove the pan from the oven and set aside to cool. Blot the leaves with paper towels if needed to remove any excess moisture.
Combine the dressing ingredients and add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Gently fold the cooled sweet potatoes and kale with the dressing.

Steamed Bone-In Chicken for Salads
Steaming bone-in chicken*, yields two great results. Succulent chicken that can be used for salads or sandwiches or added to pizza or a stir-fry as well as some flavorful chicken stock. The flavor of the stock will be determined by the type of aromatics and seasoning you add to the pan. This recipe uses onion, celery, carrot, bay leaf and mixed Italian seasoning.
*This is an old video that I am publishing as a recipe. And, yes, the logo is different, but the essence is the same! I hope you enjoy the video and learn more about the benefits of using a Steam oven, also known as a Combi Oven.
1 bone is chicken breast
1 whole chicken leg
1 small onion, peeled and halved
1 small carrot, trimmed and scrubbed
1 celery stick
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp mixed Italian seasoning
3 stalks fresh parsley (optional)
2 cups cold water
Place all the ingredients in the solid pan from the steam oven or in an oven safe casserole dish.
Heat the steam oven in the Steam Mode 212°F.
Place the casserole dish in the oven and set the timer for 45 minutes. The meat should be very tender and falling off the bone. If it's not quite there return it to the oven for 5 - 8 more minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven, carefully remove the cooked chicken pieces and place on a plate to cool. When cool enough to handle, remove the skin and discard, shred the chicken by hand or with a knife and fork and discard the bones.
When the stock has cooled discard the aromatics and either refrigerate or freeze the stock for later use.
