Servings: 3
  • 1 large sweet potato cut into thin bite sized pieces
  • 3 cups spinach fresh or frozen
  • 2 cups black beans or one can, rinsed
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1-3 eggs fried (Depending on how many you are serving)
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. Heat a large frying pan to medium high heat.
  2. Add coconut oil and melt and coat pan.
  3. Add sweet potatoes and saute until golden brown on the outside and soft. (This may take 9-12 minutes and possibly longer)
  4. Add in spinach and stir regularly to cook.
  5. When spinach is fully wilted, add garlic, cumin and chili powder.
  6. Turn to very low heat and add the black beans and stir until heated. (The beans can dry out quickly if you put them in on too high of heat. Wait until the very last minute to add them and keep the heat very low.)
  7. Serve immediately on it's own or add a fried egg on top.
Recipe Notes

I cooked the egg in a separate pan because I didn't want the beans to dry out. I cooked it at the same time I added the spinach. You can cook the egg in the same pan simply by making an egg sized space in the pan and placing the egg in the space. Either should work just fine but you may want to add the egg before the beans.
