Ingredients

Maple Dressing

¼ cup olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp chopped shallots
¼ tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 large sweet potato, peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Quinoa

1 cup quinoa, rinsed well and drained
2 cups water
¼ tsp kosher salt
1 large ripe avocado, chopped

1/3 cup chopped roasted almonds

4 fried eggs, sunny-side up
1 cup sprouts, sunflower or pea shoots

Directions

1) To make the dressing, in a small bowl whisk olive oil, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, shallots, salt and pepper until well combined. Set aside.

2)Preheat oven to 425°F. In a mixing bowl toss together cubed sweet potato, olive oil, salt and pepper. Place sweet potato on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast 16-18 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and set aside.

3)Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine quinoa, water and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook 12-15 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and let sit covered for 5 minutes. Combine quinoa, roasted sweet potatoes, avocado and a few spoons of dressing. Divide between 4 serving bowls, top with almonds and drizzle with more dressing.

4)Finish each bowl with a fried egg placed on top and sprouts to garnish.
