Sweet Potato & Turmeric Breakfast Hash

When breakfast includes a hearty portion of veggies and a dose of turmeric, the day is off to a great start!


Sweet Potato & Turmeric Breakfast Hash



This hash is veggie-filled, making it colorful and packed with nutrients.

  • Sweet potatoes – Be sure to keep the skin ON. It has near TEN TIMES as many antioxidants as the inner flesh. Also, not peeling the skin happens to cut way down on the prep time. Win-Win! ??
  • Red onion – Just as sweet potatoes pack more nutrients than white potatoes, red onions are more nutrient-dense than white or yellow onions. Bright colors are always a great choice when it comes to produce!
  • Garlic – We love the convenience of buying pre-minced garlic, which is often sold in the produce section.
  • Turmeric – Nutritionally, this spice is the star of the show! Turmeric (*affiliate link) is better absorbed when consumed with black pepper.. which is conveniently another ingredient in this dish.
  • For extra flavor, this can be topped with salsa, avocado, nutritional yeast, hot sauce or red pepper flakes. You do you!

If you’re making this on the weekend, why not make extra to heat up for a quick breakfast during the week? Leftovers keep for up to 5 days in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Re-heat in the microwave for 30-60 seconds for a quick meal or snack.
