HOW TO MAKE
First thing is to shred the sweet potato. You need to peel and then slice the sweet potato length ways.
The easiest way to shred the potato is with a food processor using the julienne attachment. If you don't have a food processor, then you can use a grater or a mandolin. Once shredded, you add the sweet potato and all the herbs and spices to a bowl and mix well to combine.
Then add some coconut oil (or butter or olive oil) to a frypan on medium heat. Then add the sweet potato mix and cook for approximately 10 minutes. While the potato is cooking fry your eggs and prep the tomatoes and avocados.
To serve, add the sweet potato hash to a plate and top with the avocado, cherry tomato and finally the egg on top.
You can use a grater, mandolin or even a spiralizer to shred the sweet potato. It will take a bit longer to do, so allow some extra time.
Yep! Omit the egg and make sure you use coconut oil or olive oil.
Absolutely! Cumin, chili, paprika are great flavours to try. Use some or all.
