Dragon Bowl with Sweet Potato, Kale, Chickpeas, Avocado & Egg

Sweet potatoes from my garden, yes there are still a few… IMG_8728.JPGI love anything topped with egg, especially roasted vegetables.  Combine that with my new discovery of rice bowls, and you have a beautiful, colorful satisfying base for the egg.IMG_8738.JPGThere are also spiced chickpeas to add flavor and texture. The recipe calls for sprinkling them on top, we all liked them better mixed into the base.IMG_8734.JPGPut it all together, and it was a very happy and healthy dinner.IMG_8740.JPG

Add the whole Garlic Cloves and cook until golden and very fragrant. Using a slotted spoon, remove the cloves and discard.
