Sweet Potato, Red Onion, and Kale Hash

Serves 4.


    Sweet Potato, Red Onion, and Kale Hash

    Hash may have a reputation for being a greasy spoon special, but this kale hash, which can be enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner on your days of cleansing, will change your idea of the dish. Sweet potatoes add substance, nutrition, sweetness, and a great depth of flavour in place of the usual floury white potatoes.



    Replace sweet potato with cubes of butternut squash or a mixture of root vegetables for an equally nourishing hash.

    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.
