Sweet potatoes are one of those super foods you read about with lots of healthy nutrients packed into some oddly-shaped roots. Most of our grower-vendors have them and I’ve seen several different varieties while browsing the Market.

This healthy frittata pairs them with another super food, kale, for a dish that’s as tasty as it is good for you!
