The foundation for this hearty sweet potato breakfast bowl is a perfectly steamed sweet potato. The steamy, sweet interior is then mashed in a bowl, lightly seasoned with cinnamon and cardamom, and topped with a colorful mix of fresh fruit, pumpkin seeds, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato, cut in half lengthwise
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash of cardamom
  • ½ ripe banana, sliced into rounds
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Place the sweet potato halves in a double boiler or steamer basket over an inch of boiling water, and steam over medium-low heat for 20 minutes, or until you can easily pierce it with a fork.
  2. Next, mash the sweet potato inside its skin, then scrape the insides into a large bowl. Add the cinnamon and cardamom and mix well, adjusting seasoning as needed.
  3. Top with the banana, pumpkin seeds, berries, maple syrup, and enjoy!

I didn’t think this would be so great but it is absolutely wonderful, I loved it. I made it just like the recipe stated and I wouldn’t change a thing.

This was delicious. I liked the mashed sweet potato better before I added the mape syrup, so next time I will skip that step. I also think that pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice would work well in this recipe.

Very good! I used some frozen mango chunks, thawed and mashed, because mango and sweet potato is yummy together and I didn’t have strawberries.
