  • 14.5 oz diced tomato no salt added, 1 can
  • 1 small shallot finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweet potato cut into small cubes
  • 1 small garlic chopped
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chili pepper or cayenne pepper
  • Handful Basil or cilantro finely chopped
  • 5-6 large eggs
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp coconut or olive oil


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and saute garlic, shallot with a pinch of sea salt until fragrant.
  • Add sweet potato and continue to saute for about 5-10 minutes until the the potato turn slightly tendered.
  • Add cumin, turmeric, chilli pepper powder. Mix well and then add 1 can (14.5oz) of diced tomato sauce.
  • Give it a gentle stir then turn the heat down to medium/medium-low.
  • Cover the skillet with a lid and let the potato and tomato sauce simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Use a wooden spoon to create small wells in the sauce and crack an egg into each one and cover the lid.
  • It depends on your personal egg preference. I like my egg yolks slightly soft but be sure to cook until the egg white is set.
  • Top with your favorite greens or basil or cilantro.
  • (optional) Drizzle with a dash of good olive oil & Enjoy !
