80--- Spinach Yam Hash

Here's a lovely healthy breakfast to break your Super Bowl binge.  It's so basic but so tasty and nutritious.

Spinach Yam Hash
Serves 4

3 medium yams, cubed into 1/2" pieces
1/2 white onion, chopped coarsely
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 red pepper, seeded and diced
5 cups baby spinach leaves, stemmed and chopped
4 eggs

In a large skillet over medium high heat, add olive oil and onion and saute ~3 minutes.  Add cubed yams and allow to cook for 15-20 minutes, flipping frequently to prevent cubes from sticking or burning.  Stir in salt, pepper, red pepper and baby spinach leaves and saute until leaves are wilted, 4-5 minutes.  Reduce heat to low and cover.

Heat a separate nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Crack eggs, separated, into skillet and cook until desired consistency.  Slide cooked eggs into hash skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Serve!

  1. I love dishes like this. I make something very similar but use chicken with a concoction of cumin, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, and cayenne rubbed on. I love the sweet, smoky, and spicy combination.

  2. This looks delish! and I bet will be good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner:)
