Ingredients

  • 8 ounces ground beef or tempeh
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces use in tempeh version only
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning see recipe on this page
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 –2 tablespoon avocado oil divided
  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and diced into small cubes (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts halved
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion diced
  • 2 –3 cups kale roughly chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Canola or other vegetable oil for cooking the beef or tempeh

Instructions

For the meat:

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and brown ground beef, using a spatula to break up the meat as it cooks. When the meat is cooked through, sprinkle 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning over the meat. Add 1/2 cup water and stir to combine.
  • Set aside.

For meatless version:

  • Pulse nuts in a food processor until finely ground, almost powdered. Add the tempeh and pulse on and off until it’s ground into crumbles; careful not to overdo it.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet. Add the tempeh mixture and sauté over medium heat until turning golden, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning over the tempeh. Add 1/2 cup water and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • In the same skillet the beef or tempeh was browned in, add 1/2 tablespoon of avocado oil. Add diced sweet potatoes, dash with salt and pepper, and sauté for 10–15 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until almost cooked through.
  • Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon of avocado oil and the onions and brussels sprouts, and sauté for about 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • Fold in kale and taco meat or tempeh and continue to cook until heated through and kale wilts.
