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.

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….

Vegan Corn and Roasted Poblano Chowder

I’ve been seeing poblano’s everywhere lately and while I have never cooked with them before, something about them just drew me in! I made a stuffed poblano recipe that needs a little work before it goes on this site and then followed it up with this recipe.

It takes a little work but Scott and I ate this every night for about 4 nights because it makes enough to serve 8. So, on an evening or an afternoon where you have some time, whip this up and enjoy it for the week or freeze and reheat at a later time. We surely were not sick of it by night 4……

Sweet Potato and Brussels Sprout Hash

As promised last week, here is what I served my Basil Tofu Scramble with.

When I made it the first time, I didn’t write out the exact spice quantities so I remade it for lunch today and enjoyed it along side a delicious salad. If someone claims to not like brussels sprouts, I encourage them to try out this dish. They are sliced so thinly and the way the combine with the sweet potato is bound to make any one a convert!

Enjoy this simple and healthy side dish :)…

Roasted Pumpkin Pilaf

Roasted Pumpkin Pilaf

I hosted my wine club last week and wanted to be sure

to have some gluten free options. I’m a little tired of

quinoa at the moment so I went ahead and tried this

pilaf dish. I also learned recently that wild rice is not a

grain, it is actually a seed! It is full of B vitamins and has

more protein than brown rice so opt for that if you can

find it, otherwise brown rice will do. Enjoy this flavorful dish!…

Vegan Split Pea Soup

Vegan Split Pea Soup

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of a homemade split pea soup on Instagram and had several people ask me for the recipe. I actually didn’t really follow a recipe for that soup because I had looked at one that used a pressure cooker and I don’t have one. So I made it my mission to find a split pea soup I felt comfortable sharing with you all. I decided to try a slow cooker version because I love putting something in the crockpot in the morning and coming home to a warm meal. I added in the cauliflower because it gives the soup some extra veggie goodness and also thickens it a little bit (maybe next time I will try it with broccoli)! I enjoyed this last night and can’t wait for the leftovers tonight :).

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 :)!

Yellow Gazpacho

Yellow Gazpacho

Nothing says summer like a chilled soup…or sweet corn, or fresh tomatoes… so what do you get when you combine all those things? This delicious yellow gazpacho!

I saw this recipe and was immediately drawn to it because 1. I love anything related to Spain. 2. To me it is beautiful and simple, which I am always drawn to 🙂 and 3. Who doesn’t love a little twist on anything traditional, right?!

Scott and I enjoyed this last night paired with my Tofu, Peanut Butter and Roasted Tomato Panzanella and we had summer screaming from our happy kitchen. So fresh, so simple, and so beautiful.

Enjoy the final days of summer and the delicious flavors that come with it!…
