Quick Sweet Potato and Any Veg Hash


I have come to really enjoy sweet potatoes. I can’t however do that whole maple syrup brown sugar thing outside of Thanksgiving weekend, so to incorporate this amazing vegetable into my regular diet, I got creative and made this one pot dish! This was for Sunday morning breakfast, my family had it with eggs, I’m vegetarian (for now) so had a heaping portion of just this with sliced avocado. 

  • 1-2 medium sized sweet potatoes peeled, diced and par-cooked. (I have an instant hot water spigot at my sink so I fill a microwave safe bowl with the diced sweet potatoes, cover with boiling hot water, add the lid, pop into microwave and voila in less than 5 minutes depending on size of dice you can have fork tender potatoes. This works with room temperature water too, just requires a few more minutes – start with fewer minutes and work your way up. You don’t want them to get too mushy!) 
  • Chopped broccoli (fork tender cooked the same way as above, but only 1-3min depending on portion)
  • Diced green or colored bell pepper
  • Diced red onion 
  • Diced mushrooms
  • Basically diced any veg you want in here!
  • 1-2 T olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika or 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 
  • Salt to taste 
  • Heat oil in a cast iron skillet with medium heat. 
  • Add sweet potatoes and sauté for 8-10min stirring occasionally. 
  • Add rest of vegetables and stir till well mixed with sweet potatoes. Sprinkle your seasonings over the veg mix and stir well. 
  • Sauté for a 3-5 more minutes to blend flavors.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro (not pictured here) 
  • Optional: Add cooked brown rice or quinoa and sauté to blend to make a one pot meal!
