Today I’m delighted to welcome back Chloe from The Loveliest Food. Chloe is our resident food expert, bringing us many a tasty recipe! Last time she showed us how to make this super tasty Banana and Walnut Cake which went down a treat with you all. Today we are looking at main meals with this Sweet Potato Hash.
Sweet Potato Hash
I’ll pass you over to Chloe…..
At the moment I’m craving midweek meals that are fresh, light and quick. It’s that tricky time of year where it’s not quite warm enough for salads and I still want kind of what comfort food!
This sweet potato hash does the job perfectly and is pretty flexible. Any green leafy veg works well and if you’re not a halloumi fan (is that possible?) you could leave it out or replace with chicken.
- 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 red onion, diced
- 1 pint of vegetable stock
- 1 block of halloumi, diced into 2cm cubes
- Olive oil
- 1 bag of greens like kale, spinach or cabbage, sliced
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
STEP 1) In a medium pan cover the sweet potato cubes with water and simmer for just over 5 mins, or until they are just soft, then drain.
STEP 2) Whilst the potatoes are cooking fry the onion in a large frying pan in a drizzle of olive oil. When soft add in the drained potatoes and the diced halloumi. On a medium heat keep everything moving around the pan and sizzle until it’s turning a lovely golden brown colour.
STEP 3) Add the sliced greens to the empty pan you boiled the potatoes in and cover with a pint of vegetable stock. Boil for a few minutes, or until wilted then drain.
STEP 4) To the frying pan add the turmeric, paprika, mustard, plus a tablespoon or two of the stock from the greens pan and stir well.
STEP 5) Finally add the greens to the potatoes and give everything one last mix together before serving.
