One of my favorite things to cook for a quick and filling breakfast, lunch or dinner is hash! There are so many ways you can get creative with it! I’ve had it for brunch at several hipster-friendly restaurants…the one that comes to mind first was a super cool place in Asheville, NC. This restaurant had a full garden in the green space beside it! I mean how much more hipster can you get? (also using the term “green space” is hipsterish) But back to my point. Hash can be an easy way to make sure you get your daily variety of veggies. It’s so fast and uncomplicated to cook. Even people who don’t enjoy cooking could have it as a go-to “feed me now” special. Today I want to give you a few ideas for your #hash. 🙂
Sweet Potato and Beet Hash
This one is so easy and beautiful! Simply peel and dice sweet potatoes and beets. Pan-fry over medium-high heat in vegetable or coconut oil until browned, with salt and pepper and garlic powder if you like. Once root vegetables are done, add the fresh spinach leaves and stir until leaves are wilted. Transfer to a plate and fry or scramble a couple eggs in the same pan with the heat turned down. Serve and enjoy!
I recently noticed that you can buy a bag of ground cauliflower veggie blend in the produce section of Kroger. It’s probably targeting the cauliflower rice trend for those who want a healthier option for dishes that call for rice. I used it for a hash dish with Asian flavors. In a pan over medium-high heat, I cooked it along with edamame, green onions, garlic and soy sauce until browned and a bit crispy. I added sesame seeds and after transferring it to a plate, cooked my egg to top it. The dish tasted very similar to fried rice you get from Chinese takeout!…only it’s homemade and healthier! Win!
This is such a great go-to recipe when you’re on vacation. Try incorporating local ingredients to create your masterpiece. Bermuda is known for its local onions. I made this one on St. George’s Island with Brussels sprouts, zucchini and just-picked Bermuda onions. I topped it with a fried egg and grated haloumi cheese. The cooking method was the same as the first two ideas above.
This is not the first time I’ve written about hash. Click here to read a post from when this blog was called 2 Cooking Chicks and my friend and I wrote together: https://thefiligreefig.wordpress.com/2014/02/23/hashrecipes/
I hope I’ve inspired you to try some different types of veggie/egg dishes. Get creative and come up with your favorite combinations! Happy hashing! -1CC
