Crispy cumin spiced sweet potato cakes, topped with crunchy vegetables, poached egg and served with a basil mayonnaise.
1. Set oven to 150ºC. Roughly chop basil leaves. Blend with lime zest, juice, 2 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise and 2 tbsp olive oil using a stick mixer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in the fridge until serving.

2. Coarsely grate sweet potatoes. Combine in a bowl with 1 beaten egg, 2 tsp cumin, salt and pepper.

3. Heat a frypan over medium heat with enough oil to cover the base. Spoon 1/4 cups of rosti mixture into the pan and cook (in batches) for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and crispy. Drain on paper towel and keep warm in the oven.

4. Bring a saucepan of water to simmer.
 Slice capsicum and halve sugar snap peas. Blanch broccolini for 1 minute. Remove and halve. Toss with fresh vegetables and 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Reserve saucepan for eggs.

5. Add 1 tbsp vinegar to simmering water. Use a whisk to create a whirlpool. Crack eggs into the centre and cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well.
