Main Ingredients

1 large sweet potato, spiralized

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp garlic powder

2 eggs or 4 egg whites

salt and pepper, to taste

fresh baby spinach, to serve

tomatoes, diced, to serve

homemade or your favourite store bought salsa, to serve

monterrey jack cheese, grated, to serve

parsley or cilantro, to garnish


1Peel and spiralize one large sweet potato.

2Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a cast iron or non stick pan over medium heat.

3Using silicone tipped tongs, toss sweet potatoes in pan with 1 tsp garlic powder and salt and pepper. Continue to toss until all sweet potato spirals are tender.

4Remove sweet potatoes from heat, and place in a medium sized bowl.

5Turn heat to medium low and put half of the spiralized sweet potatoes back into the pan forming a nest. There should be a hollow spot in the centre of your nest for the egg to be placed.

6Crack an egg (or separate two eggs into small bowl , if using only egg whites, and pour in) into the centre of the nest.

7Cook egg until desired doneness. If using a whole egg you may wish to carefully flip your entire egg in a basket to ensure your egg is cooked through. I found that when using just egg whites they were able to cook through without flipping.

8Serve over a bed of spinach and chopped tomatoes, and top with salsa, parsley or cilantro and a sprinkle of Monterrey Jack cheese.
