Sweet Potato, Corn and Kale Confetti Hash

Sweet Potato, Corn and Kale Confetti Hash

It’s a weekday evening and I arrive home from work to find fresh corn, kale, sweet potatoes and a few onions. It doesn’t sound like much but then I realized I could make a combination of my Summer Veggie Succotash and my Sweet Potato and Brussels Sprout Hash. I was NOT prepared for the deliciousness that followed. It honestly tasted like a veggie paella but without the rice! As Scott so eloquently put it “it just clumps together so nicely”!

Sweet Potato, Corn and Kale Confetti Hash

You can use regular paprika but I highly recommend the spicy kind for this dish – well, for any dish really :).

So I hope you enjoy the ‘clumps’ and flavor of this easy, simple and fresh dish!

Confetti Hash
 
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 3 Tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, shredded
  • 2 ears of fresh corn, husked – can sub 1-1½ cups frozen or canned corn
  • 1 can (15oz) white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 bunch of kale, stems removed and roughly chopped – can sub 1 bag spinach
  • 2-3 tsp spicy paprika (or sub regular)
  • Salt + Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Place oil and onion in a saute pan and heat until onions become fragrant. Add in shredded sweet potatoes and cook on medium to high heat (about 5-8 minutes) until potatoes begin to brown.
  2. Meanwhile, cut corn kernels from the cobs: Hold an ear by its stem end in a deep bowl. Use a small sharp knife to cut off the kernels, letting them and the ‘milk’ fall into the bowl. Discard the cobs.
  3. Once potatoes are ready add the corn, beans and spices. Mix well and cook for another 5 or so minutes.
  4. Add kale or spinach and either cover to wilt greens or mix frequently until the greens are wilted.
  5. Spice as needed and serve warm.

Notes: Feel free to add any additional veggies you’d like. Recipe is shown with tomatoes added in after the sweet potatoes browned but I actually preferred the taste of it the time I made it without tomatoes.

Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpeas over Shaved Carrots with Chimichurri Sauce

This is the last of the recipes I needed to update after my birthday party but I think this was the crowd favorite. The chimichurri sauce is such an easy yet flavorful sauce and makes everything taste incredible. You can roast any veggies that are in season but I loved the look of the white cauliflower with the green sauce and orange carrots.

Enjoy this hearty yet light dish!…

Mexican Polenta Pizza

IMG_3072

I have to thank Edible Perspective for the inspiration for this one. I got this delightful recipe in my inbox at the perfect time as I had just made my Tortilla-less Poblano Enchiladas and had some leftover enchilada sauce. My only issue is that my little one bedroom SF apartment does not lend itself to grilling… so I had to modify.

Below is a recipe you can use for a delicious gluten and dairy free pizza (or throw some cheese on it if you’d like). I decided to go with a mexican theme because I had the left over sauce, but this would be good with tomato sauce and toppings of choice as well….

Hello my savvy chefs!

Last week was an exciting one as I had 2 recipes published on Mind Body Green, a site I love for all things health! However, you all are my tried and true so it would be a tragedy if I you didn’t have easy access to these recipes :)… so you can find the links below.

Make a Meal out of Miso

Miso

Who loves miso soup? I do, I do! When Scott woke up not feeling great last week, I figured this was the perfect dish. It is a warm soothing broth that has the yummy taste of a miso soup but since I loaded it with veggies, it was enough for a whole meal rather than just a starter. Good bye sushi joints, hello home made miso!…

Costa Rican Inspired Cabbage Cups

I was so excited to head to the farmer’s market last Sunday! With the holidays and our trip to Costa Rica, it has been a long time since I was there and I couldn’t wait to see what was fresh and new. I always go to the farmer’s market looking to get my veggies to roast for the week but I generally also go knowing that lunch is on the horizon so I look for inspiration from what is available to create a new meal. I’ve made recipes like my Pea Salad and Green Panzanella this way.

7 Vegetarian Dinners in 30 Minutes or Less!

When I posted Five 20 minute meals, I got a lot of great feedback because many people get home from work late and just don’t have time to spend hours cooking a meal… but just because you are busy or work late doesn’t mean you can’t end the day with healthful wholesome meals. So here is a week’s worth of meals you can make in 30 minutes or less :). And the good news is you’ll probably have left overs to take with you for lunch!

Butternut Squash Casserole

I was so excited about this fall dish… then I had a vision of how to make it even more fall fabulous. After already returning home from buying all the ingredients, I marched myself back to the store to get some fresh cranberries. I had never actually cooked with fresh cranberries before so I had no idea if it was going to work or not, but it came out exactly as I had imagined. You never know until you try, right?…

Mexican Baked Spaghetti Squash

IMG_1865

I made this last week and was honestly SO excited about it! It is one of those dishes that really feels like it should be unhealthy when you are eating it …but then I realized the only thing in it, other than vegetables, is a small amount of greek yogurt. Seriously, can’t go wrong with that!

I also think this would be great for people (or children) who generally don’t like spaghetti squash because the way it is baked makes the texture a bit different. I cannot wait to make it again :)!
