My kids enjoy this crispy delightful recipe. On cold wintery days,  I sometimes whip it up even for after school snack. They absolutely love it.

I don’t know about you, but I love fall season.  I look forward to cozy comfort warm food when cold weather hits. This is one of the recipes full of earthy flavors, I love to make on repeat.

And this stir fry can be adjusted to your taste. Add in whatever veggies you have in hand. Broccoli, carrots, spinach, cauliflower or snow peas work well. Same goes for seasoning. I am making it savory. You can choose and change it up to make it sweet, earthy or spicy.

I’m convinced that once you try this recipe you will be repeating it often ; just like we do !

When I first made this recipe, it was for early breakfast.  It became hit instantaneously. Then I made it for weekend brunch. It worked beautifully there as well.

As I continued,  I served it as a side for dinner and that worked too. So, there you go, it is breakfast-for-dinner recipe as well !

And if these beautiful colors remind you of cozy fall gatherings,  you guessed it! You can use it even for  Thanksgiving Dinner side dishes or fall dinner potlucks.

While I usually make it to serve alongside Multi Grain Waffles or Vegan Zucchini Bread.  My kids love it as a topping on Avocado toast.

This recipe makes plenty for about 4 people, but you may want to double the recipe.

INGREDIENTS

Sweet Potatoes
Bell Peppers : I used red and green
Cooking Oil : I used avocado oil.  
Shallot or onion
Garlic
Ground Cumin
Smoked Paprika
Lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Fresh cilantro or basil for garnish – optional

DIRECTIONS:

Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into bite size cubes.

Cut the peppers, discard the seeds and make bite size pieces.

Cut the shallots and mince the garlic.

Heat the oil in a heavy bottom pan.  I love to use my Cast Iron Skillet as it gives a nice grill like char.

Add cubed sweet potatoes. Sprinkle some salt. Stir well. Cover and let them sweat for 8-10 minutes.

Remove the lid. Add rest of the ingredients.  On high heat, let them cook for 3-4 minutes.  Stir a few times so everything cooks evenly.

Turn off the heat. Drizzle some lemon juice over the hash. Adjust salt and pepper. Serve warm and enjoy !

PRO TIPS :

Sweet Potatoes:  Peel and cut them small. About 1/2 inch bite size cubes so they cook quickly and evenly.
Prep ahead: You can chop the bell peppers & shallot ahead, (or precut)  However, cut the sweet potatoes just before coking so they don’t harden and brown.
Leftovers : This recipe can be used for meal prep by cooking ahead and reheating through the week.
Storage :  Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.  I do not recommend freezing.
