4 cup Sweet potato (cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 onion(s) Sweet onion (finely diced)
2 clove(s) Garlic
1/2 tsp Sea Salt (or to taste)
1 dash Black pepper (or to taste)
2 can (15oz) Black beans, canned (drain liquid & rinse)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (or coconut oil)
8 medium tortilla(s) Tortilla, corn (use organic corn and check the label to make sure there is no wheat, just corn)


1. In a large skillet place olive oil, onions, and sweet potatoes.

2. Cover skillet and cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  

3. You may need to add a bit of water to help them cook.

4. Add black beans (drain liquid into sink & rinse), garlic, salt, and pepper.

5. Continue cooking over medium heat for 7-8 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are cooked through.

6. When done, heat the soft corn tortillas in a toaster or skillet on a low heat setting, so they stay soft (soft is easier to digest).

7. For serving:

  • Fill each tortilla with the black beans & sweet potato mix.  
  • Top with any of the following: sauerkraut, avocado, shredded carrots, diced lettuce or fresh parsley or cilantro.
  • This can also be eaten with/on a salad or with some steamed veggies.
