For the sweet potatoes:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub potatoes, wipe dry and place on a baking sheet. Bake 45-55 minutes, or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
While potatoes are baking, in a medium skillet, toss the chopped kale in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Over medium heat, sauté kale until slightly wilted, about 5 minutes.
Slice sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Use a fork to loosen potato and add kale, feta, and walnuts. Return to oven for 10 -12 minutes to melt the feta.
