  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes - peeled and cubed into 1-cm pieces
  • 1 bag Birds Eye Mexican Bean Mix (Frozen) (450 grams)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 ripe avocados (I use 1/3 avocado per bowl) - sliced, for serving
  • salad cheese (such as feta or queso fresco) - for topping
  • 6 medium eggs (I use 1 egg per bowl) - cooked to your liking
  • salt and pepper - as desired, for serving

Honey Lime Dressing

  • 2 whole limes - juiced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium clove garlic - minced
  • 1 pinch cumin
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil


Make the Honey Lime Dressing

  • In a small bowl, whisk all the dressing ingredients, except the oil. Slowly add in the oil, whisking everything together until emulsified and smooth. Set aside. 
    TIP: I always use my milk frother wand to quickly make the dressing.

Make the Breakfast Bowl

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet (30-cm) on medium-high heat. Add in the onions and sweet potatoes and stir for 2 minutes, until they are coated in the olive oil and the onions are just starting to soften.
  • Add in the Birds Eye Mexican Bean Mix directly from frozen and stir until everything is mixed. Add in about 2-3 tablespoons of water and cover the pan with a lid. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are cooked, and the water has cooked away.
    - If you find that the sweet potatoes are browning before they are softened, add in more water as needed. 
    - If you find that the sweet potatoes are softened but there's too much water in the pan still, then remove the lid and allow the water to cook away. 
     - Your pan's lid may lose more or less steam than mine, so adjust accordingly. 
  • If you multi-task in the kitchen, in the meantime, prepare the fried eggs to top. Otherwise, wait until the bean mixture is done before preparing the fried eggs. 
  • Once the sweet potatoes and beans are cooked, pour on the lime dressing. Sauté for a minute, stirring to coat everything in the dressing.
  • Evenly divide the breakfast bowl to serve. Top with avocado slices, salad cheese, and a fried egg.
