Apple, Carrot and Sweet Potato Hash

Apple, Carrot and Sweet Potato Hash

Breakfast hash – ever heard of it? If you haven’t, that’s ok. But we are going to fix that right now. Hash is typically a meal served in the morning containing meat and potatoes, however, we are not meat eaters here. So I devised a plan to create a hash that was just as nutritious, but vegan friendly. And so, I present to you the apple, carrot, and sweet potato hash!

This recipe is a filling and nutrition packed, perfect for all those morning gym-goers who need their carbs or people who need something to keep them fueled for longer on busy days. The sweet potato is a slow burning carbohydrate, which means a more sustained energy release for a longer period of time. Yay for good carbs! 

Let’s take a look at why you should get some hash on your plate.

To make this dish, you are going to need 15 minutes and 7 ingredients.

We first start off with sweet potato and carrots. Both of these ingredients provide us with a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, copper, vitamin K, folate, and fibre (just to name a few). Both of these vegetables are also very high in beta-carotene which is something our body uses to protect and strengthen our immune system, eyes, and skin. 

We then add apple, which not only enhances the flavours and gives us a crisp freshness, but it also offers us an array of important antioxidants and dietary fibre. The exact measures of nutrients may differ ever so slightly depending on what type of apple you use, but all are perfect options for this meal. 

To top of this recipe, we add some shallots, walnuts, and salt to season. Can it get any tastier?

The apple, carrot, and sweet potato hash is the perfect breakfast because it’s: 

  • High in dietary fibre – 14g per serve
  • Simple to make.
  • Very filling 
  • Stores well.

This potato hash recipe is best served freshly cooked. However, I know that sometimes finding the time in the morning to make something like this can be difficult. Now, if you do need to prepare it the night before hand, pop it in the fridge in an airtight container and store it for no longer than 24 hours. Be sure to heat it before eating your scrumptious hash! 

And that’s about it! Be sure to share your results with us if you do try this recipe. And don’t be afraid to experiment – perhaps you might like to try adding some flavour with your favourite spices?
