Dave Asprey’s Sweet Potato Egg & Broccoli “Rice” Bowl

1 small (about 10 oz.) sweet potato, unpeeled and cut in 3/4-in. cubes
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small (about 10 oz.) head broccoli, roughly chopped
2 large eggs
1 Tbsp. apple-cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 medium avocado, sliced
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 425°. Toss together sweet potato cubes and oil on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil; spread in an even layer. Bake until lightly browned and tender, about 35 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove from oven and keep warm.
2. Pulse broccoli in a food processor until it resembles consistency of rice, about 30 pulses. Set aside.
3. Crack each egg into a separate small bowl. Fill a small saucepan with water; bring to a boil over high. Reduce to a simmer over medium-low heat; add vinegar. Stir to create a whirlpool effect, then add 1 egg to water. Cook, undisturbed, until egg white is set, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer egg to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat process with remaining egg.
4. Heat a skillet over medium. Add butter, and let melt. Add riced broccoli and sliced scallion; cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl; set aside.
5. Divide broccoli mixture and sweet potatoes between two serving bowls; top with eggs and avocado. Sprinkle with salt and crushed red pepper.

Quick tip! Make healthy lunches for the week! Double the recipe, and swap the poached eggs for hard-cooked ones.  Dived evenly into containers; refrigerate. Add avocado just before eating.
