Sweet Potato "Toast" with Avocado, Feta & Eggs
Health Rating
A healthy grain-free option that uses sweet potato toast instead of whole-grain toast.

Ingredients


1 medium potato Sweet potato
2 1/2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 avocado(s) Avocado (for Avocado-pea mash)
1 1/2 cup Frozen green peas (thawed, for Avocado-pea mash)
1 tbsp Basil, fresh (or any herb you prefer; or sprouts)
1/2 whole lemon(s) Lemon juice (for Avocado-pea mash)
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (for Avocado-pea mash)
1 tbsp Water (as needed, for Avocado-pea mash)
1 pinch Salt and pepper (for Avocado-pea mash)
4 medium egg Egg
1 cup Baby spinach
1/3 cup, crumbled Feta cheese (sheep milk)

Instructions


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.

 

2. Wash the sweet potato thoroughly and cut it into about 1/2 - 1" slices lengthwise (the thinner the slice, the crispier the potato). Place the sweet potatoes on the baking tray and drizzle with olive oil, then using a brush, brush the sweet potato slices until they are covered front and back with oil. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are soft.

 

3. Bring a large pot filled with water to a boil (for the eggs). 

 

4. Meanwhile, prepare the avocado pea mash by adding the avocado, peas, basil, lemon juice, olive oil, water, salt and pepper to a blender and pulse until relatively smooth, with some bits left. Add a bit of water, if needed. You can also mash the ingredients with a hand mixer. Adjust salt and pepper seasoning to taste. 

5. Place the eggs in your large pot of boiled water and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes, so that the yolk remains runny. If you like, you can also do poached eggs or just fry the eggs on a pan.

6. When the sweet potatoes are ready, remove them from the oven. Place the slices on plates and top with spinach, avocado pea mash, crumbled feta cheese and the cooked eggs. Optional to sprinkle fresh herbs on top. Serve straight away and enjoy!
