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.
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
1/4 head of purple cabbage
salt and pepper, to taste
1 avocado, diced
- 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.
- 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.
- Put a cup of your mash hash on a bed of lettuce and don't be stingy with the avocado.
