Sweet Potato Hash


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced to ½” cubes
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium red or yellow bell pepper, diced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


Combine diced sweet potatoes and 1 cup water in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave 3 minutes. Drain well in a colander.

Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the sweet potatoes, toss to coat in the oil, and then spread in a single layer. Sauté for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring every 1 to 2 minutes, until the edges start to brown.

Add onions, garlic, and bell peppers and toss with the sweet potatoes. Sauté for 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper.

Yields: 4 servings
