Kale & Sweet Potato Egg Cups



Made these this week for one of my snacks and they were very fluffy and delicious! You can also replace kale for spinach if you’re not a fan of kale.


Ingredients:
  • 3 tsp coconut oil (divided)

  • 1/2 lb ground turkey

  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/2 red pepper flakes (save 1/2 for garnish)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 cup white onions, minced

  • 2 cups shredded purple potatoes

  • 3 handfuls of chopped kale

  • 20 eggs

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

  • 3 tbsp chives, minced


Direction:
  • Sauté the turkey: heat a medium sized pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp of coconut oil. Once oil is hot, add ground turkey. Stir around until for 2-3 minutes then add cumin, half of the red chili flakes and salt & pepper. Stir until completely cooked for another minute or so. Transfer into to a small bowl.

  • Add another tsp of coconut oil in the same pan over medium heat. Add onion and stir until light brown then add potatoes. Continue stirring for another 2 minutes then add salt and pepper to taste. Once the potatoes are soft, remove and transfer into another bowl.

  • Add last tsp of coconut oil and kale in a large pan over medium heat. Stir until all wilted (takes about a minute) then add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer into a separate bowl.

  • Now crack 20 eggs, add coconut milk and 2 tbsp of chives and whisk until well combined in a large mixing bowl.

  • Layer from bottom to top In a jumbo muffin pan the following ingredients: 1 tbsp of turkey, 1.5 tbsp of potatoes, 1/8 cup of kale, then 1/2 cup of egg mixture.

  • Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

  • Remove from oven then garnish with remaining red chili flakes and chives.

  • Store in food container and refrigerate. It should last up to 5 days!
