Sweet Potato and Brussels Sprouts Breakfast Bowl

This Sweet Potato and Brussels Sprouts Breakfast Bowl is breakfast, lunch, AND dinner approved! Healthy enough for breakfast, yet hearty and filling enough for lunch or dinner. Better yet, it’s loaded with nutrition, color and flavor – three of my must-haves!

I’m such a sucker for over-easy eggs, especially when paired with roasted root veggies and a little smoked paprika, turmeric and curry powder! Since being pregnant with our little Adelaide {5 months old now}, my go-to breakfast has been savory rather than sweet. In the past I reached for my daily Greek yogurt with bran flakes, oats, flaxseed, cacao nibs and a little banana, but it just didn’t sit well on my stomach this pregnancy. Instead I ate a lot of eggs, toast, avocado, and other savory options.

And while the yogurt combo is back on my list of favorites again, I find I still tend to go the savory direction most mornings. My recent favorite has been a little sweet potato, zucchini, and bell pepper sautéd with some of these same seasonings, then topped with an over-easy egg and wrapped in a low-carb tortilla. I threw in Brussels sprouts on a whim one day and have been hooked ever since. I love the flavor they add and couldn’t help but think they were the perfect thing to make this roasted veggie breakfast bowl blog-worthy.

The lentils bring a great source of fiber and protein to the dish, while balancing the inherent sweetness from the potatoes with their earthiness. These flavors paired with the smoked paprika, turmeric and curry create a lovely base for the runny eggs. Although I didn’t add cheese this round, I can’t help but think an aged white cheddar would be a wonderful addition!

If you’re looking for a great, healthy dish for breakfast this weekend, let me highly suggest this Sweet Potato and Brussels Sprouts Breakfast Bowl!
