I love this dish because it TRULY is a 15min meal… not like those recipes that are *supposed* to be quick - this one really does come together in 15min, and there are very few dishes to wash after. Vegetable hash with fried eggs is something I make multiple times a week because it's SO easy, healthy, and delicious! It’s perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I usually serve it with avocado, but this time I had a tortilla on the side. I love Siete Foods tortillas - they are vegan, gluten-free, and they use real food ingredients like almond flour, seeds, avocado oil, and more. Since Siete tortillas are high quality, they are pricey - I buy them when they are on sale and freeze extra packages.
Back to hashes. Hashes are the best because ANY vegetable will do. Don’t have/like mushrooms? Try zucchini or roasted sweet potatoes or chopped cauliflower or broccoli…. Don’t have/like kale? Try chard or spinach (spinach will cook down much faster, so it would be best to add it to the hash after the eggs are cooked). Find the vegetable combo you like best - hashes are a great way to get a ton of veggies in, especially for breakfast when our traditional breakfasts do not focus on consuming vegetables.
Lastly, a vegetable hash is a great source of healthy carbs, but make sure to include protein and fat to balance the meal. If you don’t eat eggs, mix in tempeh or beans, or sprinkle on a few tablespoons of hemp hearts as a topping. For fat, make sure to cook in a healthy oil (e.g. coconut oil or olive oil), and half an avocado on the side is an extra win.
The insanely easy process summarized:
Heat a large skillet to medium and add coconut or olive oil.
Add chopped 1/2 onion, then some chopped mushrooms (or any other vegetables). Season with salt and pepper.
Add a handful of sliced kale. Stir and move to the side of the skillet.
Crack 2 eggs into the other side of the skillet and cover the pan.
When eggs are cooked to your liking, serve with avocado or tortilla.
