  • 3 Sweet potatoes peeled
  • 1 cups Black beans cooked
  • 3 big handfuls Kale destemmed and torn
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 tbsp Garlic chopped
  • 1/2 cups Onion diced
  • Coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Curry powder I like yellow for this dish
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Organic stock optional
  • Cooked quinoa
  • Cilantro torn


  • Cut sweet potatoes in 1/4 inch pieces.
  • Place sauté pan over medium high heat and drizzle with half TBS oil. Add garlic and onion. When translucent, add sweet potatoes, curry and cumin to pan and cook for a minute until they begin to brown, stirring throughout to coat.
  • Cover after a minute, bring the heat down to medium and let cook for about 5-8 minutes, stirring once or twice, until they’ve softened up. You might need to add a little stock to coat pan.
  • Add black beans. Stir to mix. Add kale, season with salt and pepper, mix and cover. Let cook for 2-3 minutes, uncover and stir. (If it’s looking too dry, drizzle some coconut milk or organic stock.) Cook until kale is vibrant green.
  • Drizzle with lime, garnish with cilantro and serve over quinoa.
