Fall Veggie Sweet Potato Hash

This Fall Veggie Sweet Potato Hash is a nutritious breakfast of greens, beans, fruits, and carbohydrates! Green apples turn this dish into a delicious fall breakfast.

Fall Veggie Sweet Potato Hash

This recipe is coming to you as a gift from my sister. She makes a mean breakfast hash and allowed me to share her recipe on here with you.

I'm all about getting in the maximum nutrients and this Fall Veggie Sweet Potato Hash is the perfect way to do it. It's got a large serving of greens, as well as protein and fiber from beans. Plus healthy carbs from sweet potatoes and the secret ingredient: apples.

This hash is also super versatile. When I was asking my sister about her recipe she told me that she switches it up every time, depending on what she has on hand. No sweet potatoes? Use a regular potato. Hate kale? Try spinach. I listed her common substitutions down below, but you can easily let your imagination run wild on this one. Choose your favorite ingredients from each category and get cooking!

One last note - I'm literally so obsessed with the fall vibes of this hash. My sister's secret ingredient for this hash is an apple. And besides adding a unique flavor to an otherwise savory dish, I love that the apple gives the entire hash a fall feeling. Ugh, so good!

Why I Love this Fall Veggie Sweet Potato Hash

  • Dietary needs — this recipe is dairy-free, plant-based, oil-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free
  • Delicious breakfast — this dish feels like fall on a plate, plus it's filled with FLAVOR from the apples, sweet potatoes, and spices
  • Full nutritional profile — fiber and protein are top nutrients to focus on, this hash has both, plus a healthy serving of greens

Ingredients

This dish is super versatile. My sister tells me that she makes it a different way each time. I've listed some of her common substitutions below.

  • Sweet Potato: You can sub a regular potato like an Idaho potato or yellow potato. Make sure to leave the skins on, as they have the highest fiber content.
  • Chickpeas: Any bean will work. My sister often uses black beans.
  • Granny Smith Apple: Don't skip the apple, it gives so much flavor and depth to the dish. You can use any type of apple you like. Granny Smiths in particular add a nice tart flavor and tons of nutrients. Like with the potato, be sure to leave the skins on.
  • Kale: You can sub spinach or any other green of your choice.
  • Seasonings: Garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. These are my sister's go-tos but you can choose any spices you'd like. A dash of paprika would be delicious!
  • Vegetable Stock: You only need a tablespoon or to, to prevent the veggies from sticking to the pan.

Fall Veggie Sweet Potato Hash Ingredients

How to make Fall Veggie Sweet Potato Hash

Step 1. Poke a few holes in the sweet potato using a fork and microwave for 2-3 minutes, until it is slightly soft. You will cook it more in the pan, but this helps to get the cooking process started. If your sweet potato is pretty large, you may need a few more minutes.

Step 2. When the sweet potato is cool, slice it into small chunks.

Step 3. Add the sweet potato, chickpeas, apple, garlic, cumin, and chili powder to a large pan. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, until the apple is soft and the chickpeas are warmed. Use a splash of vegetable broth to prevent sticking.

Step 4. Add the kale and cook a few minutes more to wilt it down.

Step 5. Remove from the heat, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and enjoy!

Storing and Reheating this Breakfast Hash

If you have leftovers of this hash (and you probably will, it makes a lot) you can just store the hash in a container in the fridge.

To reheat, you have a couple options. You can always simple microwave the hash. But you can also heat it back up in the pan. Or throw it in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes until everything is warm.

Thank you God for this meal. Help us to start our day off right with food to fuel our bodies. Thank you for the gift of family. Amen.

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
