Instructions
  1. Add metal steamer to Instant pot (the one that comes included with the pot!) and add 1/2 cup of water to the pot. Place sweet potatoes on steamer, lock the lid properly and turn the steam release handle to “sealing”. Click on “manual” and press plus until you reach 15 minutes. Then click pressure to change to “high pressure”. Let the magic pot do it’s work.
  2. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil to make poached eggs or heat a pan over medium heat to make fried eggs. For poached eggs you need VERY FRESH eggs to be able to poach them, otherwise they spread out and don’t stay one piece. If you don’t have very very fresh (as in laid max 3 days ago) eggs, make fried eggs instead for this recipe.
  3. Once instant pot beeps when the 15 minutes are over, move the steam release handle to “venting” to quick release all the steam. Once all of it is out it’s safe to open the lid. Remove sweet potatoes and plate.
  4. Cut sweet potatoes in half, place an egg on each half, salt and pepper generously, add lemon zest, lemon juice, cilantro and serve with half an avocado.
