I am the all time recipe follower when it comes to cooking. I measure down to the tsp of salt most of the time. I am cracking up as I type this, because making myself get out of this comfort zone has been challenging. Don’t get me wrong, I still follow recipes all the time, but it has been fun and interesting to branch out and create different recipes, like this scrambled sweet potato hash.
Lunches at home can be tricky when you are home with kids. I find this is my hardest time not to snack on everything in sight. I am busy in the mornings with working out, grocery store trips, planning dinner, school activities, but by lunch and late afternoon it is easy to reach for something crunchy, salty or even that sweet treat in pantry.
Today I made sure that didn’t happen. I bought these sweet potato Veggie Co. Brand noodles from HEB the other day to experiment with. They save me a step when I have busy days and evenings with my family. And let’s be honest, that is everyday and evening. I was pleasantly surprised this dish was so tasty. Now I didn’t add much seasoning because I wasn’t sure what I was creating, but it turned out sweet, salty, and had some crunch!
What is great about a hash, is you can be as creative as you want. I had a small amount of fresh spinach in the fridge, and 1/2 of an apple from my son’s lunch leftover. And that is how this dish was created. The added apple at the end of this recipe gives it an extra sweetness with an unexpected crunch! YUM!
Scrambled Sweet Potato Hash
10-15 minutes Pre/Cook time
1 sweet potato spiraled (I used already spiraled noodles from Noodle Co. about 1/2 of the container)
2 large handfuls of fresh spinach
1/2 apple, chopped
Salt and pepper
Heat a large skillet, add 1 tbsp of coconut oil, once heated add your sweet potato noodles and saute for 5-7 minutes.
Add 2 eggs and scramble with your cooking noodles. Or scramble 2 eggs separately and set aside. Once eggs are scrambled add 2 handfuls of fresh spinach and let cook for another 2 minutes until spinach has turned bright green and soften. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour noodles into a bowl, add your egg if you cooked it in a separate skillet.
Then add 1/2 of an apple, chopped.
Mix together and serve.
Happy Cooking! I would love to hear what you think if you try this dish!
