  • 1 yam or sweet potato, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
  • 1/2 red or yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup asparagus pieces cut on the bias
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 12-inch whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon grated gruyère
  • 1 cup arugula



1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2. Toss yam with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Roast for about 30 minutes until fork-tender.
3. Meanwhile heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over high heat. Add onion and sauté until fragrant, approximately 5 minutes. Add asparagus and sauté for 2 more minutes. Add eggs, fennel seeds, pepper, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook over medium-low heat until light and fluffy.
5. Lay out 1 tortilla and evenly spread half the egg mixture down the center. Top with gruyere, arugula, and roasted yams. Fold over one side and roll into a burrito shape. Repeat with remaining tortilla.
