Yep, MORE EGGS.

I told you, I’ve become obsessed. I’m all about breakfasts lately.

I just LOVE starting the morning with a wholesome bowl of goodness to get my day going right.

I recognize that the previous sentence reads like a cereal commercial, but I can’t help myself.

I can notice a serious difference in my energy and attitude on days when I have an awesome breakfast instead of a sad energy bar or 40 ounces of coffee.

I’ve mostly been rotating back and forth between poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce (AKA eggs in purgatory AKA shakshuka), and this incredible bowl of sunshine I’ve dubbed the SWEET POTATO POWER BOWL.

I like to make the simplest version of this breakfast with just sweet potato, egg, tomato, and avocado, then dress it up using whatever crazy stuff I have lying around.

Today it was cilantro, lime, Greek yogurt, and pickled red onion.

Sometimes I add fried plantains, Peruvian aji amarillo sauce, or just a ton of Tabasco.

I have a terrible habit of adding way too much hot sauce to stuff and then pretending like I’m never going to make that mistake again. It’s like a fun game, except it’s not fun.

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup diced sweet potato
  • 1 egg, cracked into a bowl
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 avocado, diced
  • Garnishes: Pickled onion*, chopped cilantro, Greek yogurt, lime wedges

Instructions

  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Spray generously with oil and add the sweet potatoes. Saute 3-4 minutes, tossing every 30 seconds or so, until the potatoes are lightly browned. Turn the head down to medium low, add a teaspoon of water, and immediately cover the pan. Let the potatoes cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off the heat, re-cover, and let rest.
  2. Heat a small non-stick pan over medium heat. Spray generously with oil, then gently add the egg to the pan. Let cook for 2-3 minutes, until the white is set and the yolk is cooked to your liking. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a bowl, along with the tomatoes and avocado. Slide the egg on top, then garnish with pickled onion, cilantro, and yogurt. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.

Notes

*To make pickled onions, just slice up some red onion, put it in a glass container with a secure lid, and add enough white vinegar to submerge all of the onion. Give it a good shake. The onions will be tasty after 5 minutes, but they get better after a day or so in the fridge!
