Healthy Sweet Potato Hash

This delicious healthy sweet potato hash is one of my favorite goto dinners.  It started out one night as my husband and I literally just throwing veggies and meat together when we didn’t know what to cook.  It turned out so good we continued to refine it until we nailed it. 

Sometimes when my hubby goes to work at the fire station for 48 hours, we’ll make a big batch of this so he can take a bunch to work and I have lunches for the next few days. 

It is packed full of veggies, but most importantly – ROOT vegetables!

  1. Sweet Potatoes – High in Vitamin A and may help with vision as well as blood sugar control
  2. Onions – High in antioxidants and may help with blood sugar control
  3. Carrots – May lower cholesterol and lower risk of vision problems
  4. Ginger Root – May help nausea as well as decrease inflammation and pain

Can I Prep the Vegetables Ahead of Time?

YES!  I do this all the time.  I don’t prep the night before because that is a bit too long for the cut veggies (especially sweet potatoes) to stay totally fresh once they are cut.  I have, however, prepped the veggies in the morning and cooked the sweet potato hash at dinner time.

Is Sweet Potato Hash Low Carb or Keto?

This healthy sweet potato hash is definitely low carb, but not keto.  

However, for those that participate in a keto lifestyle, this meal is often used for a healthy carb up day.  If you are keto and have never heard of a carb up day, I invite you to check out the Benefits of a Carb Up Day.

This dish is also paleo-friendly.  

Pretty much any way you slice it – it is HEALTHY!

How Can I Store Sweet Potato Hash?

The best way to store this is in an airtight container.  And, of course, keep it cold in the fridge!

How Long Will This Healthy Sweet Potato Hash Last?

Oh boy!  I’ve eaten this up to 5 days after making it. 

To be safe, however, I normally suggest consuming it within 3-4 days!

What to Serve This Sweet Potato Hash With

Well, this is certainly a complete dinner all by itself.  BUT, sometimes you need something sweet that is just as healthy as dinner!  This gluten-free cornbread is the perfect healthy, yet sweet side dish to accompany this delicious dinner.

Now if you want something sweet and healthy AFTER dinner, then this gluten-free lemon cream pie is just the thing.  Light, creamy, and most definitely satisfying. 

How To Make Healthy Sweet Potato Hash?

There is a reasonable amount of prep work for this recipe, so roll those sleeves up and prepare to make the healthiest and tastiest (and most simple) sweet potato has EVER!

As I already talked about, you can prep the veggies ahead of time if you can’t do this all in one step!

I cut all veggies ahead of time sometimes and just store them in an airtight container until it is time to make dinner.

Healthy Sweet Potato Hash

In a large wok or pan, cook sweet potatoes over medium-high heat. Do not use oil as it will make them mushy. Stir often. They are done when slightly soft – about 15 minutes.
