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. Line baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
On large holes of box grater, grate sweet potato. In large bowl, whisk 1 egg before adding grated sweet potato, garlic, and pepper. Stir until well combined. Divide sweet potato mixture into 3 equal parts on prepared baking tray. Form each mound into a disk, about 4 inches wide and 1 inch 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 2/3 full with water to a simmer over medium-low heat. Crack remaining 3 eggs into 3 separate ramekins or small bowls. Add vinegar to simmering water and, with slotted spoon, stir water to create a whirlpool effect. Gently tip one egg into center 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. The egg white should be firm, and the yolk should be soft. Once done, using 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.
