  • 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!
