Sweet Potato Avocado Breakfast Mash Hash

So I lied: the next post wasn't about soup. Not because I didn't want it (I wanted more soup so bad), but because my fridge already has to ex-large mason jars filled with soup. I wouldn't mind having a fridge filled with different varieties of soups, but I don't want the VegFam getting bored on me. 

I thought about eating leftover soup for breakfast this morning but I'm so glad I didn't. This turned out super duper with two thumbs up. With all the colors I felt like I was eating a rainbow filled with laughter. My belly was totally on board too. She dug so hard. 

I called it a mash-hash because some of my potatoes stayed firm and some turned into the consistency of mashed potatoes. I hope that doesn't bother you because you'll regret not making this. 

It's easy. Annnnnnd delicious. Also, it's filled with super high levels of the good stuff:

  • dietary fiber - in short, it makes you poop, but in the long run a diet with high dietary fiber is avoiding (or at least rapidly decreasing the risk of): heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and weird gastrointestinal conditions. 
  •  potassium - basically, you need a high potassium diet to save you from high blood pressure and kidney stones. It also keeps your bones in tact. That's important, yo.
  • vitamin A - possibly my favorite of all the vitamins; it keeps your vision, immunity, growth and reproduction in check. It also adds a lining of mucous to everything so the bad bacteria can't get in your shit. So body security system?
  • vitamin B6 - communication is key in any relationship, be it boyfriend, girlfriend, teacher, momma, boss, friend, picketer, nerve cells, etc. Your nervous and immune systems need this vitamin to talk to each other about making hormones, insulin, antibodies, cell membranes, and for breaking down the proteins, carbohydrates, and fats you put in there. 
  • vitamin C - this is your cells' Knight in Shining Armor. It protects them from damage, helps wounds to heal, fights off fire breathing infections. It also keeps your bones, teeth, gums, and blood vessels healthy.
So there. 


3 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 tbsp white cooking wine
1 zucchini
1/4 head of purple cabbage
salt and pepper, to taste
1 avocado, diced
spring mix  
  1. Melt that coconut oil and get your onions started on the softening process. When you're feeling it, add in the onion, bell pepper, carrots, potatoes. 
  2. When the potatoes are near tender (maybe like 15-18 minutes), add in your zucchini and purple cabbage. Cook for about 3 minutes and then use that wine to deglaze your pan. After a minute or so, you're ready to eat breakfast. 
  3.  Put a cup of your mash hash on a bed of lettuce and don't be stingy with the avocado.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
