For a quick and delicious breakfast, fry up some sweet potatoes and peppers for a healthy sweet potato hash. I'm a big fan of Mexican food, and this dish reminds me of the fresh and spicy flavours of Mexico with its combination of cilantro and red pepper (and hot sauce if you're feeling extra spicy!). The sweet potato really adds a tender sweetness that goes fabulous with a couple of fried eggs or better, some seasoned grass-fed sausage.
Sweet Potato Hash with Peppers
1 tsp. coconut oil
1/2 cup sweet potato, cubed and boiled
1/2 cup green pepper, diced
1-2 eggs, preferably free-range
red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
1. Heat oil in pan on medium-high heat. Add green peppers to pan and cook until just beginning to soften, a minute or two.
2. Add sweet potato to pan, season with red pepper flakes and salt and pepper. Heat through.
3. Once heated through, transfer hash to plate. Next, fry one or two eggs and serve atop the hash.
4. Sprinkle hash and egg/s with fresh cilantro and your favourite hot sauce.
Makes 1 serving.
Try This: Cut your cook time in half! It's easy to boil or roast some sweet potatoes on the weekend or the night before and this will make the cooking process that much quicker. Keep a container of chopped vegetables in the refrigerator for this and other dishes, and you're all set!
Add seasoned lean ground beef or pork (pre-cooked) to your skillet for some extra protein or in place of the egg/s.
