Healthy Homemade: Curried Sweet Potato Hash

When I told my sister we were having hash for breakfast her response was, “Isn’t that illegal?” So I just want to clear the air and say that the hash I am referring to is a dish of cooked meat that is recooked, usually with potatoes. This particular hash doesn’t have meat – so maybe it’s not a hash at all – but it sounds better than “Pile of Shredded Veggies with Curry.” It may not be the prettiest dish, but it’s a delicious and filling breakfast or post-workout meal. It’s packed with vitamin A, C and good carbohydrates. (Bonus: a poached or fried egg on top adds protein.)

I shred sweet potatoes, zucchini and onions in my food processor, but you can add other root vegetables to beef it up. If you don’t have a food processor with a fancy shredding attachment, make a double batch so you only have to shred once, and keep it in the fridge for the rest of the week. The fried egg on top is key. The hodgepodge of veggies soak up the gooey yolk like it’s their job. This recipe is flexible, but make sure the veggies all have the same cooking time (no sweet potato and red pepper hash).

Curried Sweet Potato Hash
adapted from Everyday Paleo
serves 4

2 sweet potatoes
2 zucchini (I substituted yellow squash once and it was too sweet)
1/2 onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2 tablespoons curry powder, to taste
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
5 tablespoons coconut oil, or other healthy fat
2 eggs

Peel onion and sweet potatoes and rinse. Chop ends off of zucchini and rinse.

Using a food processor or a handheld grater, shred the sweet potatoes, zucchini and onion.

In a large mixing bowl, combine shredded vegetables, eggs, and spices. Mix well.

Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add the hash, and cook, stirring frequently until the potatoes are soft and start to crisp up.

While the hash is cooking, fry an egg in a separate pan. Serve immediately.
