Sweet potato and roasted pepper hash


Can you say easy, all you need is one pot for this absolutely delicious meal.  Who does not love sweet potatoes with flavorful roasted peppers? This makes a great side dish or it can be enjoyed all on its own. You can’t go wrong with a one pot hash ever!

This one I made up on the fly for Sunday dinner. I needed a recipe for the blog and a side dish to accompany some lemon butter salmon that I was in the process of cooking. Not to mention we barely had any veggies to work with and only three sweet potatoes left. So this is the recipe you get when your kitchen is low on stock.

The sweet potatoes I refer to in this post are not the sweet yams but the purple skin with yellow flesh starchy very hard potatoes. I tried making it with the sweet yams, and while it’s equally delicious the texture of the sweet yams/potatoes are too mushy, they don’t get crispy and firm the way the other sweet potato variety does. No matter the sweet potato you choose

Ingredients ( printable recipe)

3 sweet potatoes
½ large onion
1 garlic clove
2 roasted green peppers
½ teaspoon salt
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
Scallion to garnish


For roasted peppers

  • Place peppers on an open flame and char all sides
  • Place charred peppers in a sealed container and allow them to steam for 5-10 minutes
  • Wash or peel away the charred skin, remove the center stem and seeds
  • Slice the peppers into small bits

For the potatoes

  • Chop the onions into fine pieces set aside
  • Shred the garlic clove set aside
  • Peel and dice the potatoes into half inch cubes
  • Heat about 2 tablespoons of the coconut oil in a pot until very hot and add the potatoes to it
  • Cook the potatoes while turning; the outsides will get crispy while the center will get soft
  • Once the potatoes are almost completely cooked add the onions and 1 tablespoon of oil (if needed)
  • Saut√© until the onions become fragrant, add the salt and garlic clove, and stir completely
  • Add the roasted peppers and stir
  • Garnish with scallion slices and serve.
