Most of my health clients get really stuck on what to eat for breakfast. The idea of breakfast is typically categorized as eggs and bacon, cereal, or toast. Trying to eat healthy, let alone vegan and gluten-free can certainly feel overwhelming. We hope to make breakfast recipes easy and delicious for you. Here is one of our family staples; sweet potato, and black bean hash!
We are huge fans of easy meals and this sweet potato and black bean hash is exactly that! Seriously, what is better than only having to wash two or three dishes after breakfast...
We are trying to get the kids on to a schedule of alternating who does dishes so they are always happy when the sink isn't overflowing.
How to make sweet potato and black bean hash
If you need to speed up this recipe, you can cut the potato into smaller chunks. Don't be afraid to add additional spices that you like! We recommend using a medium sized cast iron pan for this recipe. Double up the ingredients for more servings.
- Remove kale if you want to freeze this recipe.
- Toss in carrots for some vitamin A.
- If you like heat, add some hot pepper or splash of hot sauce to give it some punch.
- Add corn to give a nice crunch.

- Refrigerate: Keep in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the fridge.
- Freezer: We don't suggest that you freeze this recipe if you add kale like we did, it just doesn't taste as good after being frozen in our opinion. If you don't use kale, then this will freeze well in a freezer-safe container for 2 weeks.
- Reheat: We prefer to saute in a pan on medium heat. You can use a microwave and heat for a couple of minutes if that is easier for you.
