  • 4 small sweet potatoes, scrubbed and washed
  • 4 medium carrots, 2 roughly chopped and 2 shredded
  • 1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 cherry tomato, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  1. Cook chicken in a hot skillet with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.
  2. Combine the chopped carrots, onions, tomatoes, garlic, 2 tablespoons of the vinegar, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, oregano, cayenne and a few grinds of black pepper in a food processor; pulse until coarsely chopped.
  3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add the vegetable mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until dry, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Add 1/4 cup water and cook, scraping up any brown bits with a wooden spoon, until the water evaporates, about 1 minute.
  5. Add the ground beef and cook, stirring and breaking it up into smaller chunks, until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  6. Split the potatoes in half, scoop out some of the warm flesh and add it to the beef mixture; stir to combine.
  7. Divide the potato halves among four plates and generously fill each half with the beef-potato mixture.
  8.  Toss the shredded carrots with the cilantro, the remaining 1 teaspoon vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Divide the carrot slaw among the four plates.
