  1. Heat oven to 425F / 215C.
  2. If lemon butter was refrigerated, warm it in the microwave until pourable. Toss sweet potatoes, carrots, and radishes in lemon butter. Season with some salt and pepper. Spread vegetables out on a sheet pan. Roast vegetables, shaking pan halfway through cooking, until tender, 22 to 25 minutes.
  3. When vegetables are nearly finished, heat a nonstick pan with oil over medium heat. Crack eggs into heated oil and fry on one side for sunny-side up or flip for over-easy.
  4. If quinoa was made ahead, reheat in the microwave.
  5. Serve fried egg over vegetables and quinoa. Season with some salt and pepper and top with green onions. Serve with some hot sauce if you’d like.
