4cupskale, torn into bite size piecesI used green curly kale
115oz canblack beans, drained and rinsed
Make the spice mix: In a small bowl, combine 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp sea salt, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/4 tsp garlic powder and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until turning translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the diced bell pepper and cook another 2 minutes, then add the minced garlic and continue to sauté for another 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add the grated sweet potato and stir to combine spreading it evenly across the skillet. Cover the skillet. After about 3 minutes, stir the sweet potato mixture and cover again to cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Add the spice mix and stir until it evenly covers the sweet potato. Add a splash of water if it looks like the mixture is drying out, then add the kale and black beans on top (don't stir). Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover for 2-3 minutes to wilt the kale, then uncover and stir to evenly distribute the kale and beans. Serve immediately or divide among 4 glass storage containers for meal prep and refrigerate. Eat within 4 days.
