It’s time for some healthy hash! One of the biggest challenges of eating healthy during the winter months is knowing how to add in enough veggies. Winter squash sure makes this easier! It’s full of wonderful texture, flavor, and nutrition.
You can serve this tasty hash for Christmas breakfast, a holiday brunch or we even have it for dinner some days! Add an organic free-range egg on the side, a Prune Muffin, and some Secret Ingredient Hot Cacao and you have a very tasty and nutritious meal.
Winter Squash can have anti-inflammatory benefits, help regulate blood sugar levels and have antioxidant benefits. It also contains vitamins B1, B3, B6, pantothenic acid and folate. Due to the combination of both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, winter squash may even help prevent cancer! (source)
Despite the bad rep they sometimes get, Potatoes can reduce inflammation, prevent cancer, relieve high blood pressure, relieve indigestion, support brain function, and they are easy to digest. (source)
Add all this to some bell peppers, onions and garlic for added nutrition and flavor. Now you have a dish that is as health promoting as it is delicious! We like to use avocado oil because of it’s high smoke rate as well as the fact that it really doesn’t add any flavor. This allows all the flavor from the veggies and spices to really shine. Let’s eat!
Winter Squash Hash
- 4-6 potatoes, diced
- 2-3 cups winter squash, peeled and diced
- 1 large bell pepper, diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 3-4 garlic cloves, diced
- avocado oil
- Real Salt to taste
- black pepper to taste
- cayenne to taste, optional
Cover potatoes in water and let soak 4-8 hours. Drain and rinse. Place all veggies on a stoneware cookie sheet. Drizzle avocado oil on top (we use about ¼ cup). Season with Real Salt, black pepper, and cayenne if desired. Stir together to coat all veggies with oil. Bake at 425º until tender. This should take 45-55 minutes. Stir occasionally while baking.
