Easy and simple paleo sweet potato hash recipe with caramelized garlic and onions.
A healthy breakfast or side dish packed full of flavor!
This paleo sweet potato hash recipe is for all you sweet potato lovers!
I don’t know about you, but I almost never ate sweet potatoes growing up. I really only remember having them at Thanksgiving.
Well now they are one of my favorite vegetables!
From breakfast to dinner to dessert (have you tried my healthy chocolate milkshake?), sweet potatoes are so versatile.
I promised you guys more vegan breakfast ideas, and today I’m serving up this sweet potato hash recipe.
My simple vegan breakfast hash recipe was a hit, so I used a similar method to make the most delicious sweet potato breakfast hash.
If you love sweet potatoes, or want to learn to love them, I guarantee you will enjoy this yummy recipe!
How to make sweet potato hash
First, peel and chop 2 – 3 large sweet potatoes (you will need around 6 cups worth of diced sweet potato.)
Place sweet potatoes in a glass casserole dish, and sprinkle them with garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, salt, pepper, and paprika.
Drizzle with olive oil to coat (up to 1/3 cup).
Roast in the oven at 450 degrees for 55 – 65 minutes, stirring 3 – 4 times.
Each time you stir the sweet potatoes, use a spatula to scrape up any edges that have stuck to the pan.
This will help make sure that the sweet potatoes get as crispy as possible!
Once your sweet potatoes have about 15 minutes left, it’s time to make the caramelized garlic and onion.
Just like in my simple vegan breakfast hash, I do not recommend skipping this step.
You will be surprised at just how much depth of flavor is added just with a little fresh garlic and onion.
Next, add your garlic and onion to a skillet with a touch of olive oil, then cook it for 12 – 15 minutes, until browned and soft.
We want the garlic and onion to be caramelized but not burnt. Stir often to avoid overcooking it too quickly.
Once your sweet potatoes have finished roasting, add the cooked garlic and onion to the casserole dish and stir to combine.
Your sweet potato hash is ready to serve!
This is the part where I just have to eat some straight out of the pan.
My only problem is stopping long enough to grab a plate!
Thanks to 450 degree roasting and a glass dish, you will get those yummy crispy bits on your sweet potatoes.
This is where all the flavor comes from! Slow roasted is the way to go with potatoes.
This gives them so much flavor.
While sweet potatoes themselves won’t get totally crispy, those edges give this dish tons of flavor and texture.
What to serve with sweet potato hash
This sweet potato breakfast hash would be perfect served with my tofu scramble recipe for a hearty vegan breakfast.
It would also make a great side dish for dinner!
I’m already planning a twist on my vegan breakfast burrito recipe to include this hash.
Or perhaps a breakfast burrito made with this sweet potato hash, vegan sausage, and tofu scramble.
Now THAT sounds amazing! I need this in my life.
Sweet potato hash, I love you.
