Breakfast Hash with Apples and Sunchokes

Serves 4.


    Breakfast Hash with Apples and Sunchokes

    Weekend breakfasts offer the time for creating a satisfying meal. When it comes to hash, one can include any number of ingredients, such as squash or sweet potatoes, and even topping it with a poached egg for more protein. In our version, we added sunchokes (also called Jerusalem artichokes) for a lovely texture and flavour that’s perfect for the season.



    • Breakfast Hash is also delicious as a filling for omelettes or large, thin crepes.
    • Sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem artichokes, are a bit like a cross between a water chestnut and a potato. They’re so easy to prepare, since you don’t need to peel; just scrub clean and slice or dice. In a pinch, you can substitute with canned water chestnuts.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
