This is one of those recipes that defy categorization and could easily be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Sweet potato is one of the best natural sources of carbohydrates, which can help improve your mood as it promotes the production of serotonin, a feel-good brain chemical. The vitamin D found in fortified eggs is necessary for many of your body’s important functions, and it may also help improve your mood.
Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Line baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
On large holes of box grater, peel and grate sweet potato. In large bowl, whisk 1 egg before adding grated sweet potato, garlic, and pepper. Stir until well combined. Divide potato mixture into 3 equal parts on prepared baking tray. Form each into disks about 4 in (10 cm) wide and 1 in (2.5 cm) high. Transfer to oven and bake until lightly crisped and nicely browned, about 25 to 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together tomatoes, black beans, kimchi, cilantro, and lemon juice. Set aside.
Bring medium saucepan filled about two-thirds full with water to a simmer over medium-low heat. Crack remaining 3 eggs each into separate ramekin or small bowl. Add vinegar to simmering water and, with slotted spoon, stir water to create a whirlpool effect. Gently tip one egg into centre of whirlpool and let cook for 5 seconds. Gently re-stir water and add remaining eggs just like the first. Let eggs poach in gently simmering water until cooked as desired. For a runny yolk, poach eggs for about 3 minutes. To check for doneness, gently lift egg out of water with slotted spoon and poke egg with your finger. Egg whites should be firm, and the yolk should be soft. Once done, with slotted spoon, transfer to plate lined with paper towel.
To serve, place warm sweet potato rosti on serving plates. Top with slices of avocado, kimchi salsa, and a poached egg. Garnish with some freshly ground black pepper, if desired. Enjoy immediately.

This cozy winter drink is perfect for sipping by the fireside. Serve it up with our Maple Pecans. It’s soothingly delicious and creamy served hot or cold. Plant milks We’ve suggested oat milk for an ultimate creamy beverage in our recipe. But any plant milk will be equally delicious. Other possibilities include unsweetened soy, almond, rice, and regular dairy milk products. Iced maple milk affogato A true Italian affogato is vanilla gelato or ice cream doused in espresso. In our version we place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a glass and douse it with our hot Dreamy Maple Sipper. Shave some dark chocolate on top and gratings of nutmeg. Serve with a tall spoon. Delicious!
Here’s the perfect recipe for a fireside snack attack. It’s so easy and can be made ahead and stored in a tightly covered container in the fridge or freezer without losing crispness. Delicious served with a hot toddy. Crunchy munchies Switch out pecans for Brazil nuts or walnuts, or even mixed nuts. The trick is to use raw nuts, as opposed to roasted, as these would become too toasted. Try playing with different spices such as cinnamon or curry powder. These are delicious served on crostini that’s been spread with our Creamy Feta Dip.
