Bring in the new year with this plentiful 1 Pot Black eyed pea and Sweet Potato Hash with Harissa Spice. Ready in 20 minutes. Serve over toast with a creamy dressing or avocado. Vegan Gluten-free Soy-free Recipe.
2017 will be here in another day and we need some beans esp black eyed, sweet potato and spices! to bring it in. This sweet potato hash is super easy and comes together really quickly.
Sweet potatoes are cooked with onion and garlic in a skillet, then simply spiced with harissa and smoked paprika, tossed with greens and cooked black eyed peas. Pretty, hearty and wonderful. Serve the hash as a side or over toast topped with sriracha or avocado, fill up tacos, or make a buddha bowl with cooked grains like turmeric lemon rice and a dressing or lemon juice. So many ways to eat this amazing stir fry. Use other cooked beans or lentils and other spice blends like cajun or garam masala for variation.
For all the black eyed pea prosperity and happiness, make this Deep Dish Lasagna Pizza with Black eyed Peas and Greens, Some Black Eyed Pea and Lentil soup, a grain-free Black eyed Pea and Potato Masala Pie stuffed with broccoli and cauliflower, or a hearty black eyed pea and Pumpkin Chard Chili.
Be safe and happy this New Years eve!
