  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


A quick, fresh breakfast for summer, this savory breakfast salad combines kale, blueberries, sweet potato, hemp, egg, and a flax seed oil/apple cider vinegar dressing to get your day started on a high note.


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch each sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large bunch kale
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts/hulled hemp seeds (same thing)
  • 2 eggs, cooked in your preferred way (fried/poached/scrambled) //OR 1/2 batch of tempeh bacon*


  • 1½ tbsp flax seed oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp grainy mustard
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 20 twists black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Roast the sweet potato: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Dice the sweet potato into 1/2-inch cubes and place on the baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Roast for 20 minutes, or until fork tender. Set aside to cool.
  2. Wash and dry the kale. Slice into thin ribbons and place in a large bowl.
  3. Make the dressing by combining the flax oil, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, grainy mustard, salt, pepper, and garlic in a jar. Secure lid and shake to emulsify. Drizzle the dressing over the kale and use your hands to massage it all over the kale until tender and bright green. Add 1/2 cup of the blueberries and 1 tbsp of the hemp hearts and toss.
  4. To serve, divide the kale salad between two plates. Top each salad with 1/2 of the sweet potato and the remaining 1 tbsp hemp and 1/4 cup of blueberries.
  5. Serve protein of choice (an egg, tempeh bacon, baked tofu, or sprouted grain toast with cashew cheese) on the side.
