Sweet Potato Hash

Sweet potatoes……who doesn’t love sweet potatoes?

This has become my “Go To” side dish recently.   It goes with everything!  And it is really easy to make.

First thing you need to do is shred the sweet potatoes.  I have been using my Cuisinart food processor.  If you have one to those, it makes it even easier!  If not, you could probably use a cheese grater.  I have not tried this way, but if you do let me know how it goes.   When using the food processor, make sure you use the grater blade.

This make so much shredded sweet potato!   One medium sweet potato will make enough for two different meals!  Maybe that’s why we are eating it so much!   Whatever you don’t use put it in a ziplock bag and put it in the fridge for later in the week.

Recipe:  (serves two)

  • 2c shredded sweet potato
  • 3-4 tsp olive oil (start with the smallest amount at first, too much will make the hash too oily and the texture will be off)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper, or more to your taste
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt, or more to your taste

Put all of the ingredients in the pan and cook on medium heat for 11 minutes.

What you have is the basic recipe to a great sweet potato hash.  The great thing about this recipe is that you can do so much with it!  I have lately been putting less sweet potato and putting in 1/2 cup of shredded butternut squash.  Don’t want this for dinner?  No problem!  Add some bell pepper, spinach, scrambled eggs and top it with salsa and you have a great post workout breakfast!

Hope you enjoy!
