Sweet Potato Hash

What You Need:


  • Olive oil
  • 2 sweet potatoes, washed and diced to about 1/4″
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and finely diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 small bunch mustard greens, stems removed and leaves chopped
  • 5-6 leaves kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
  • 2 heads bok choy, leaves chopped (retain bulbs)
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 avocado – sliced
  • 2-3 hard boiled eggs, cut into wedges
  • bok choy bulbs, thinly sliced
  • Cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Juice of half a lime

How to Make It:

  • In flat-bottomed sauté  pan, heat about 2 tbsp olive oil over medium-low heat and add onion and garlic. As onions begin to sweat and you can smell them, add about 2 tsp salt, a few grinds of pepper, and the basil (crush it in your hands first). Cover pan and let onions and garlic soften, about 3 minutes.
  • Add sweet potatoes to pan and stir to combine. Spread sweet potatoes evenly across pan, raise heat to medium and let cook another few minutes. Stir to turn sweet potatoes, and gently place greens on top. Cover pan and let the greens steam down a bit onto sweet potatoes, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Uncover and stir to combine. Sprinkle balsamic vinegar over pan (about 1-2 tablespoons) and sprinkle a big pinch of salt. Stir to combine and check tenderness of sweet potatoes. Cover pan and let continue to cook over med to med/low heat until sweet potatoes are nicely tender and greens are soft.
  • Combine sliced bok choy bulbs, cherry tomatoes, lime juice, and sprinkle of salt.
  • To serve: plate hash, top with sliced avocado and quartered egg, with a little of the bok choy bulb salad on the side.

Optional: if you want to add some other protein, this goes great with leftover meat too. For instance, if you have some ribs, take the meat from the bone and add it to the saute when you add the balsamic vinegar. Stir to combine and let it continue to cook/heat. You could also use left over roasted chicken or cooked sausage.

Fried Quinoa with Crispy Eggplant and Bok Choy

What you Need :


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 cup eggplant cubed small, from half a large eggplant
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable or sunflower oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and diced
  • 1 small onion, diced small
  • 2 tbsp. tamari, or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. miso paste
  • 1-inch knob fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 bunch Chinese cabbage (bok choy)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tbsp. roasted peanuts or sunflower seeds

How to Make It :

Place quinoa in a large bowl with enough water to cover it by an inch. Using your hand stir quinoa a couple times, then drain through a sieve. In a pot, place 1 cup of vegetable broth or water with 1 cup of quinoa and a pinch of salt. Bring water to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium high. Simmer until most of the water has been absorbed. Turn heat to low, cover and cook for another 10-15 minutes. Quinoa is cooked when translucent, a small white ring will emerge around the grain when ready. Remove from heat and set aside until ready to use. Place a skillet over high heat, add a tablespoon of oil and when it’s hot add eggplant. Cook stirring occasionally for about ten minutes. Eggplant should be soft throughout and crispy on the edges. Add another tablespoon of oil if necessary. While eggplant cooks place another large sauté pan over high heat. Add another tablespoon of oil, diced onions and garlic. Reduce heat to medium and sweat vegetables out until translucent and soft (about 5-8 minutes). In a separate cup whisk together soy sauce, miso paste, and ginger. Add soy-miso paste into the pan and stir. Reduce heat to low. Add cooked quinoa and eggplant. Stir until well incorporated. Thinly slice bok choy and add to pan, cover for a couple of minutes, until cabbage starts to wilt. Whisk two eggs together then pour over quinoa. Stirring constantly for two minutes until softly scrambled and well incorporated into the quinoa. Remove from heat. Add Chopped cilantro, green onions and peanuts over quinoa. Serve immediately with a side of soy sauce.
