Start your day with a filling and nutritious breakfast bowl! Sweet potatoes, power greens, red pepper and onion add tons of fiber and vitamins, while fried eggs provide protein to keep you full until your next meal.
Hi, friends! My husband and I are currently overseas on a two-week long adventure in Ireland, Scotland and London. Follow our adventures over on Instagram! While we’re away, I’ve invited a few of my blogger friends to share recipes and intuitive eating posts! Today’s post is by my friend Kelli.
Hello! My name is Kelli Shallal, and I blog over at Hungry Hobby. Emily and I share many similarities as we are both Registered Dietitians that focus on real food and intuitive eating. Over at Hungry Hobby, I share whole food recipes, nutrition tips, and workouts 5-6 days a week. My goal is to encourage people to find a balance between healthy and happy. I didn’t grow up learning how to cook healthy food or cook anything other than top ramen. I had to learn, and it wasn’t always easy. My goal is to provide encouragement, inspiration, and community to my readers that I wish I had when I was learning to cook and trying to stick with healthy eating. In a recent survey, an overwhelming majority of my readers commented that I’m funny, so I guess I provide a decent amount of entertainment as well! Who knew?!?!
Despite learning to cook and running a food blog as part of my career, the one thing I really can’t stand is dishes. Ugh, I simply despise dishes, really any chores I hate (can you tell I am an only child?) but dishes are my arch nemesis. I hate them so much that this year I started a Monday series on the blog called ONE DISH MONDAYS. It’s been a huge hit, well at least in my life it has been! Every week I share a one dish recipe like skillet recipes, sheet pan recipes, instant pot/slow cooker recipes, meal worthy smoothies, and more. I’m so excited to share my newest one dish recipe here today! If you hate dishes as much as I do, you can check out all my one dish recipes here.
Now, for this recipe, you will notice a ton of chopped veggies in it. So, you may say this isn’t truly a one dish recipe, and I’d say that classification is entirely up to you. I use dishwasher safe cutting boards so since I only have to wash one dish by hand, I’d say it’s a win, and I’m calling it “one dish.” I also used one of the bowls we were going to eat out of to hold the sweet potatoes on the side (see recipe instructions) so that I didn’t dirty up another dish. Sometimes I get creative in my resolution to do as little dishes as possible, but hey, if that’s what it takes!
I hope you enjoy this recipe and thanks again for letting me crash the party while Emily is gone! Come visit me over at Hungry Hobby any time, I’m sure I’ll be complaining about dishes, we can commiserate together!
Sweet Potato & Greens Breakfast Bowls
- 4 tsp coconut or avocado oil
- 4 small sweet potatoes, chopped into small cubes
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 5 oz power greens (any mixed greens, I used kale, chard, spinach mix)
- 3 oz arugula
- 1 chopped roasted red pepper
- lemon juice to taste
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 Tbsp feta
- 4 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 8 eggs
- garnish: green onions
In a large nonstick skillet that has a lid, cook onions and garlic in 1 teaspoon oil until translucent and tender, 1-2 minutes on medium heat.
Toss sweet potatoes with 3 teaspoons coconut oil and add to the skillet.
Cook sweet potatoes with the lid on for 6-8 minutes, stirring every 1-2 minutes to ensure they aren’t burning. If they begin to burn reduce the heat.
Once sweet potatoes are tender remove the mixture from the skillet and set aside in large bowl. Now sauté your greens until just wilted. There should be enough oil left in the skillet but if not use a bit of cooking spray or ¼ teaspoon additional oil. Then add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.
Add greens to the large bowl with the sweet potatoes and toss to combine. You can also add the red pepper at this point.
Fry up the desired amount of eggs, enough for four servings or if you are meal prepping you can make enough for 1 and fry eggs as you go throughout the week. Alternatively, you can make hard boiled eggs to take this on the go.
This recipe makes enough for four servings. Divide mixture evenly among four people, top with 1 tablespoon feta, 1 tablespoon pepitas, and eggs. Now, dig in!
