Ordinary hash gets a big healthy and flavorful makeover with this plant-based breakfast hash recipe. It’s made with vitamin-rich sweet potatoes, instead of russets, is light on oil, and has nutritious add-ins, including bell peppers, spinach, mushrooms, and plantains. Unlike ordinary bananas, plantains aren’t very sweet, and they have a starchiness that holds up well to cooking, much like potatoes. They are also rich in prebiotic goodness.

This plant-based breakfast hash is an ode to Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. It’s the perfect dish for her to wake up to, providing much needed energy that’s easy on the stomach after such a long slumber. We like that it’s naturally dairy-free, top food allergen-free, and even paleo-friendly.
