Sweet Potato and Kale rosti with baked eggs

Sweet Potato and Kale rosti with baked eggs

Don’t you just love it when two vegetables meet and it literally becomes love at first bite?! I have recently found this between kale and sweet potato. For me, flavour is everything in a dish- …closely followed by texture! Even as a child it was all about taste, I would raid my parents’ spice rack adding a little bit of ‘this’ and ‘that’ to enhance the flavour. I loved working out what worked well together and learned very quickly (as did my poor family) what didn’t!

I adore meat and could never give it up, however I will admit that sometimes a dish is better off without it- especially the one I am about to share. This is a one pan dish that can go from pan to plate in under 25 minutes. It’s a dish that’s perfect for sharing with one or two others. We regularly have it after a long day at work or on a Sunday for brunch with steaming hot mugs of fresh mint tea out in the garden. However you choose to have it, it’s a dish I can guarantee you will enjoy and have again… And again.

Recipe type: Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Snack
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 230g Sweet Potato, de-skinned and grated
  • 240g Red Onion
  • 2 Large handful kale, chopped and washed
  • 3 Large eggs (add an extra egg if you are serving for 4)
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • ½ tsp Sea salt
  • ½ Lime, juice
  • 1 tsp Coconut oil
  • Small handful coriander
Instructions
  1. In to a food processor with the "grating" attachment, grate the 230g sweet potato (or grate by hand if you do not have a food processor)
  2. Finely chop red onion and garlic
  3. In to a non stick frying pan over high heat place 1 tsp coconut oil
  4. Add in grated sweet potato and fry off until it softens (2-3 mins)
  5. Add in red onion and garlic and continue to fry (3-4 mins)
  6. Add in salt and place kale on top to steam a little before mixing in (it will reduce in size pretty quickly)
  7. Now press the mix firmly down and turn the heat down to medium (as you do not want the bottom to burn)
  8. Crack 3 eggs on to the top and leave to cook through (5-6 mins)
  9. You can finish the dish off under the grill if you like a crispy top (I don't usually do this though as I prefer the yolks to be runny)
  10. Once cooked through squeeze ½ lime juice over the dish and add chopped coriander and cracked black pepper / dried chilli to taste
  11. Serve immediately
