Directions

  1. Heat a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat and add canola oil. (Add turkey bacon to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, until starting to crisp.)
  2. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes and cook for about 5 minutes, or until they begin to soften.
  3. Add the onions, red peppers, and yellow peppers to the pan. Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The onions should start to caramelize.
  4. Add the kale to the pan and wilt. Season with salt and pepper. Add ½ cup water to steam if potatoes haven’t cooked through.
  5. Serve with fried or soft boiled eggs.

Chef Tips

To make this a vegetarian dish, instead of turkey bacon in step 3 when the the sweet potatoes, onions, and peppers are soft and caramelized, stir in 1 teaspoon of sweet smoked paprika and cook for a minute before adding the kale. Or in Step 1 you can use tempeh bacon strips, only be aware it won’t crisp like bacon.
