Sweet Potato Hash

Sunday Brunch

I loooove Sundays. It’s the one day my boyfriend and I get to spend fully together (except he has to work today) and I feel like I always make better use of it than Saturdays. I don’t have too much on the agenda for today besides Bikram at 4 and possibly a bike ride before that. I got a new bike seat that’s gel top and a lot wider than my other seat so I want to test it out and might take it for a short ride soon.

Another thing I love about Sundays is brunch and today we decided to do brunch at home. The star of it was the Sweet Potato Hash. We started by adding some chopped sweet potatoes and red onions to a wok with a little canola oil.

That cooked for about 10 minutes until the potatoes and onions were soft and getting browned. Then, we added chopped frozen tricolored peppers, frozen organic sweet kernel corn, and sausage style crumbles and continued to cook it in the wok for another 10 minutes.

With my hash I had one poached egg (poached in simmering water with 1 tbsp white vinegar) and a slice of whole wheat potato bread, which made for a delicious Sunday brunch.

I just re-discovered this whole wheat potato bread yesterday at the grocery store. I like my bread to be made with whole grains, have under 100 calories per slice and some fiber, and most importantly taste delicious. This bread has 70 calories a slice and is made with whole grain flour. Because its potato bread, its fluffy and delicious tasting and went so well with breakfast! I hadn’t had a poached egg in ages and had been craving one, so this really hit the spot. And sweet potato hash?? Yes, please! It was so good that my boyfriend is thinking about putting it on the brunch menu at his restaurants. 🙂

I also had two cups of french press coffee with frothed almond milk.

I wasn’t sure how the almond milk would work with frothing and it didn’t froth as well as regular skim milk, but still was pretty good! I couldn’t believe how heating up the almond milk really brought out the nuttiness of the milk. I like almond milk, but never really think it tastes or smells like almonds, but after I heated it up for 30 seconds before frothing it, it smelled so strongly of almonds. It went really well in my coffee and gave it a nice nutty flavor.

OK I’m off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday. I’ll be back after Bikram. Hope your weekend is good!
