I have an exciting post for you today!! I will share this delicious Superfood Breakfast Tacos recipe from the awesome book Let Them Eat Kale! by my dear blogger Julia from The Roasted Root. Also, I am honored to be hosting my first giveaway on this blog!! Cool, right? She was sweet enough to send me a copy of her book to give away to one lucky reader!! Isn’t that AWESOME?
When Julia asked me if I’d be interested in taking a look at her new cookbook, I was thrilled! Why? Because, she is one of my favorite bloggers, an incredible talented recipe developer and I admire everything she does. I love her sense of humor. Her posts always have me laughing! Julia is also a huge veggie lover like me and her blog is just WONDERFUL with easy, quick, nutritious and delicious recipes.
This gorgeous book is full of delicious recipes made with Kale, of course. There are 75 tasty recipes, explanation about different types of kale leaves and also different ways for preparing this green. You will find vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and also recipes with meat. If you want to pick a copy of Let Them Eat Kale!, you can find on Amazon or in your local bookstore.
So, to celebrate her new book, I decided to make this delicious Superfood Breakfast Tacos! Although, I can’t wait to try some more recipes from her book including Vegetable Stir Fry with Turmeric Rice, Creamy Portobello and Kale Quinoa Bake, Chili Verde Shredded Chicken Enchiladas and the list goes on and on.
I picked out this Superfood Breakfast Tacos first because I just love the combo kale and sweet potato! They simply compliment each other very well. When I saw this recipe I said to myself “this recipe is calling my name”. I just think this is a great way to use kale and a very flavorful healthy breakfast meal. This breakfast taco is also packed full of flavor with onions, black beans, turmeric, ground cumin and garlic powder. All spices that I love!

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups sweet potato (peel on), chopped into ½” pieces
- ½ yellow onion, chopped
- 1 14-ounce can black beans
- 4 cups tightly packed kale leaves, chopped
- 9 eggs
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt to taste
- In a large skillet, heat the oil to just above medium. Sauté onion and sweet potato until sweet potato is al dente and onion is softened, about 15 minutes. If necessary, add a few tablespoons of water periodically in order to help steam the sweet potato.
- Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the spices and salt, and whisk to scramble. Set aside. Remove the stems on the kale leaves and chop leaves.
- Wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and put them in the oven at 350 degrees F until they’re hot, about 7 minutes.
- Heat the can of black beans in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
- Once the sweet potatoes are cooked to desired level of “doneness,” add the kale leaves and mix in. Allow kale leaves to soften, about 45 seconds.
- Pour eggs evenly over the veggies and cook for 1 minute. Using a spatula, flip the eggs/veggies over on top of themselves so that everything stays clumped together. Cook about 2 minutes. Repeat several times until eggs are cooked all the way.
- Time to prepare your tacos! Remove the tortillas from the aluminum foil, sprinkle them with cheese, then add black beans, scrambled eggs/veggies, and top with diced tomato and avocado. Enjoy your filling, nutritious breakfast!
