Healthy Edamame Sweet Potato Hash

Healthy Edamame Sweet Potato Hash. Packed with 22g of protein and 9g of fiber!

“Pin me, I’m tasty!”- Hash

Most mornings, I’m lazy when it comes to breakfast. My go-to meal to start my day lately has been microwavable brown sugar banana oatmeal, which takes all of 30 seconds to throw together and another two minutes in the microwave. While it’s delicious, easy, and fast, there are days (especially the day after lifting weights) where I find myself hungry an hour later and know that I need more in the protein department of things. 

Enter: Healthy Edamame Sweet Potato Hash! 

Healthy Edamame and Sweet Potato Hash. Protein-packed and one of my favorite breakfasts!  (22g protein and 9g fiber)

Not only is it absolutely delicious and bursting with all the good things in life (read: bacon), it packs in a ton of different nutrients, flavors, textures, and, of course, protein!  

Let’s break down the cast of characters:

Sweet Potato: the sweet potato brings in that mouthwatering sweet and salty combination, as well as the vitamins B6, C, and D, which help in preventing heart attacks, warding off the cold and flu, and maintaining energy levels, moods, and building healthy bones. Not only that, but they also contain fiber, which helps to keep you full and your poop happy! (Did I really just type that…)

Edamame: not only does it have a vibrant coloring (I want my next Kitchenaid Mixer to come in the shade “edamame”), but it’s also rich in protein, vitamin C, manganese, and copper! Manganese helps your metabolism, regulates your blood sugar levels, and helps keep your nervous system alive and kickin’. Hooray, manganese! Copper plays an important role in managing energy, boosting your immune system, and strengthening your bones. You go, Glen Copper!

 Bacon: well, it’s delicious and makes everything better.

    What a flavor & beautifully colored dish. You mind if I come over for breakfast? Afterwards we can go shopping & then have your man whip us up some awesome sandwiches on his painini maker? :)

    So I guess this is what you were talking about, huh? Haha this looks so delicious! You’re so right about needing more protein some mornings. Sometimes, I’m good with just cereal, but many mornings I need something moooore. This looks so good and as you know I love edamame!

    :lol: I love what you said about bacon ;) I’m still not quite on board with being able to give up my oats for breakfast, but this dish looks amazing and I could definitely see it happening for lunch or dinner. The only thing is… I’ve never had edamame. I know, I know — blasphemy. It’s on my to-do list ;)

    Mmmm, this looks DIVINE. Sweet potato just makes the world a better place. I’ve actually only ever had edamame once in a salad, but I remember really enjoying it – after being super weirded out by having no idea what I was eating, hah. I’m awake two hours early this morning, so this probably would have happened if only I had some edamame. Darn. ;)

    I love any kind of ‘hash’! It is so easy to make and you literally just throw random contents in and it turns out delicious every time. I’m an oats girl during the week but I like to switch things up on the weekend and get creative.

    I know I’m crazy, but I don’t like bacon. At all. It just doesn’t taste good! And I’ve never had edamame before. Major health nut no-no. But yet, this still sounds fantastic. I don’t really like savory for breakfast (I need my peanut butter) but I can definitely see this for dinner! Also, I have the word “poop” in my next recipe post – good to know I’m not the only one ;)

    Aww, that intro quote was adorable! :D

    I sound like a broken record, but I will say it once again, you have my mouth WATERING. Like.. what. You’re coming up with the most amazing recipes.

    Three delicious foods in the same hash?! I am OBSESSED with sweet potato, edamame is yummy, and bacon? Do I even need to explain?

    We soooooo need to have a day (or week..) full of cooking and baking together. ;)
