Sweet Potato Hash
Sweet Potato Hash

Last night, we enjoyed this delicious sweet potato hash for dinner.  I slightly modified it from a CookSmarts recipe. I added chili peppers and omitted the sauteing oil.  Feel free to skip the chili peppers or adjust them to taste.  I like things a little spicy.  I also added cilantro for serving.

Thanks to using a microwave to speed cooking times, this simple vegetarian dish came together in a snap.  While it was cooking, it filled my home with beautiful, aromatic fragrances.  It’s visually appealing and tasty on the palate.

My Family Loves Sweet Potato Hash

My husband devoured it.  Afterward, I saved leftovers for my bachelor sons, who raved about the smells in the kitchen.  Speaking of leftovers, if you have extra, sweet potato hash freezes well. Just omit the fried egg.  Just remember to cook one to top your dish while you microwave it later.

Since this recipe uses basic, easy to find ingredients and is relatively budget friendly.  First, you only saute together some onions, bell peppers, and sweet potatoes. Then, top individual plates with avocado, egg, and green onion tops.  Voila! A healthy, satisfying meal is ready to eat.

It’s full of vitamin A, fiber, and protein.  It’s also relatively low in calories, so it won’t blow your calorie budget.  So, it definitely fits the bill for what constitutes healthy eating.  It makes a great dinner or a delicious brunch.

Sweet Potato Hash is a filling dish with a hearty, earthy flavor. While downright delicious, this plate of comfort food won’t break your calorie budget and pack a nutritional wallop!

  • 3 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1/2 red bell peppers, diced

  • 1/2 tsp dried cilantro (ground coriander)
  • 2 TBSP Lime Juice
  • 4 eggs - fried to your liking

Microwave cubed sweet potatoes for about 8 minutes. They should be a little tender, but not too soft. We will be sauteing them a little more.

Spray a skillet with a little cooking spray. Add microwaved sweet potatoes. Saute until they are seared and have little crust. Remove potatoes from pan. Set aside. They should look like this.

    I am all about the carbs and love a good hash. I think using sweet potatoes would be a delicious change!

    Forgive me if this is a duplicate comment. My computer glitched. I was just saying this is an unusual way to use the sweet potatoes (a good unusual). I bet it would be awesome for Sunday brunch!

    My son doesn’t love sweet potato that much but he loves the regular potato instead. I think he will like this recipe.

    What an interesting idea! Hubby loves corned beef hash, not sure if he’s ever had sweet potato hash.

    Sweet potato hash sounds really good. I use sweet potatoes so much that I buy a case of them from our Farmer’s Market when in season and they give me a discount on the following cases I buy, when I save my box. I can’t wait to try your recipe.

    This dish looks delicious! We would probably swap out the pinto beans for black beans… I can get the kids to eat those! LOL!!

      It would probably go very well with black beans. I love black beans and sweet potatoes together – but I cannot get David to eat them. LOL

      Me, too! The awesome thing about this recipe, though, is that it’s not sweet like traditional sweet potatoes are served.
