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).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
