My name is Sonnet and I’m a holistic health coach and the voice behind For The Love of Food, a seasonal, plant-based food blog filled with healthy, hearty recipes and my quirky humor. I’m so excited to be here while Richa is taking some time away from the kitchen. I’ve been a big fan of Richa’s blog for awhile and I love the way she combines simple ingredients into mouth-watering dishes.
As a vegan who cooks for lots of non-vegan eaters, it can sometimes be a challenge to come up with hearty recipes that satisfy a variety of tastes, especially for breakfast and brunch. On weekdays I usually power my mornings with a kale smoothie(video) , but I like to have a more substantial breakfast on weekends. This is where this hash comes in.
In my kitchen, my focus is to use fresh and natural ingredients that are sourced locally and seasonally as much as possible. Spring can be a tough time of year for finding seasonal produce, but luckily greens, potatoes, and onions are almost always available here in the Pacific Northwest.
This hash starts with a base of crispy yams and potatoes, sautéed greens, white beans, and lots of flavor from onions, garlic, and a variety of spices. This hash is perfect to serve alongside sweeter options at a brunch, or topped with some avocado slices and served by itself. It’s loaded with fiber and packs a whopping 26 grams of protein per serving! Now there’s a way to start your day!
