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!

I just had this for breakfast, so yummy! This is the 2nd time I’ve made it and both times the sweet potato cubes got too soft, so I think next time I’m going to cook them separately in the air fryer. All that aside, this is one of the best recipes I’ve gotten from this site. I thank you and my tummy thanks you!
My daughter has A LOT of allergies. This is perfect for her besides the chili spice in the harissa spice blend. Do you think it would still taste good without that ingredient?
yes, use other blends that dont have chili.
I NEVER comment on recipes but we loved this!
Had it for breakfast over rice and tofu scramble 🙂
Thanks! My husband and I really enjoyed this! I added a bit of vegetable broth instead of water and we ate it as more of a soup/stew in a bowl with homemade vegan sour cream. I loved the flavors. I’ve added it to my list of meals to make frequently.
This was yummy with wraps as well as quinoa
Thank you! Xx

Do you mean 1.5 cups cooked dried black-eyed peas? If so, that would be about 1/2 dried, soaked overnight, then cooked the next day?? Thanks.
yes 1.5 cups cooked. 1/2 cup will give about 1.25 to 1.5 cups cooked. If you use a pressure cooker or instant pot, soak for 10 minutes, then cook for 15 mins. natural release

Thank you Richa!! I’ve printed the recipe now and will add that note to it. I’ve made this recipe before – it’s DELICIOUS!! – but had forgotten about the bean question.
I usually don’t like sweet potato but it’s very good in this recipe. ????
thank you for this delicious recipe and the idea to use beans
I usually cook something similar with lentils or chickpeas, but the added thyme and the use of beans changes the taste quite a lot and I really liked it
here’s the result: https://flic.kr/p/PEksAs
(Only had jumbo beans around)
Do you know of a recipe for harrisa?
Here in Mexico they don’t have blackeyed peas, can I use black beans instead?
Thank you Richa.
Try this dry blend https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/sauce-spread/sauce-spread-seasoning-mix/dry-harissa-spice-mix.html

I’ve seen so many recipes over the past few days with black eye peas it’s like the interweb KNEW i randomly picked up a tin last week! This is by far the most appealing to my tastes though. I oddly want it for breakfast!!

One pot dishes are the best. I always love sweet potato in recipes and this look delicious. I’ll try making this soon. I’m thinking of using it in a buddha bowl with some quinoa and salad greens.
That should be awesome!
