The ultimate vegan loaded sweet potato – packed with kale, black beans, and topped off with a homemade green goddess dressing. Perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal. 


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 tbsp + 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and chopped (about 6 packed cups)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Green Goddess Dressing, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Rub potatoes with 1 teaspoon olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Using a fork, poke multiple holes into sweet potatoes. Place potatoes in oven and bake until tender, about 45-55 minutes
  3. In the meantime, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat in medium saucepan. Add onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add kale and toss to coat. Add 1/4 cup water, cover, and cook until kale has wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove cover, toss kale, reduce heat to low, and cook until kale is desired texture, adding more water as needed, about 10-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add beans and stir until warmed through.
  5. Cut roasted sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Top with sautéed kale and beans.
  6. Serve sweet potatoes with Green Goddess Dressing.


  1. For a time saver, use store-bought Green Goddess Dressing.
  2. Customize with your favorite legumes and vegetables – sometimes I add halved cherry tomatoes on top too.
