Prep Time:




Chili Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 medium sweet potato, sliced into ¼-inch thick rounds
  • ½ cup butternut squash, sliced into ¼-inch thick chunks
  • ½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
Sauteed Beet Greens
  • ½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ red onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped mushrooms – I used portobello
  • 4 cups beet greens, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
Fried egg
  • Drop extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large egg


  1. Preheat oven to 400F and place all chili sweet potato ingredients on a medium-sized cookie sheet.
  2. Coat sweet potatoes and butternut squash in the oil and spices. Lay flat and cook in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until browned. Flip halfway through.
  3. For greens, heat oil in a medium-sized cast iron pan on medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and mushrooms. Saute for 8-10 minutes, until soft.
  4. Add beet greens and onion powder. Stir to coat in cooked onion mixture. Cover and cook on low heat for 1-2 minutes, until greens have softened.
  5. For fried egg, drop a tiny bit of oil in a small frying pan and heat on medium heat for 1 minute. Crack egg and drop into pan. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes until desired consistency is met.
  6. Serve everything together on a plate and top with desired amount of sea salt.
