Recipe for Hearty Sweet Potato Hash


For 4 servings

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • Β½ yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp Purple Stripe Garlic
  • 1 Smoked Star Anise pod
  • 2 tsp Wild Mountain Cumin
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black peppercorn, to taste
  • 2 green onions, chopped (for garnish)
  • 2 eggs, over-easy (if desired)

Step by step

step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and star anise and simmer just until tender. Drain and dry completely with paper towels.

step 2

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic, and cook until lightly golden, for 5-6 minutes. Place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

step 3

Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of oil to the skillet, turning heat to medium, and then add the sweet potatoes and star anise. Cook in a single layer, stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes.

step 4

Without stirring, increase the heat to high and cook, until the potatoes are golden and crisp, for at least 2 more minutes.

step 5

Sprinkle with cumin and gently stir in the onion mixture. Serve with eggs on top and scallions as desired. Enjoy!
