Vegetarian Sweet Potato Hash is a healthy spin on traditional hash and an easy recipe for your next brunch or even for breakfast for dinner. Traditionally breakfast hash comes from the word “to chop” and often consists of meat,  potatoes and onions. Originally used as a way to utilize leftovers.  We adapted this recipe for vegetarians by excluding the traditional meat and adding in extra spices and using sweet potatoes.

This recipe is a brunch necessity and sure to please a crowd.  The recipe is not only vegetarian, it is gluten-free, easy, budget-friendly, heart-healthy, low sodium, and nut-free which makes it a winner for so many people with dietary restrictions. If you’re interested, you can make this vegan by excluding the cheese and egg as toppings!
