sweet potato hash recipe // bexadiary.com

. 2 small or 1 large sweet potato baked, peeled & diced
. 1 1/2 cup fresh brussels sprouts quartered 
. 3/4 cup chopped walnuts 
. 1/4 cup diced onion
. 1 large garlic clove diced
. 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary chopped
. 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
. coconut oil

step one:
preheat oven to 450* wrap sweet potatoes in foil & bake for 30 minutes. bake them just enough to get the outsides tender. you don't want a mushy potato. they will finish cooking on the stovetop. 

step two:
wash & quarter the brussels sprouts. pull off the first few outer leaves & trim the base of the sprout just enough to get any dirty bits off. but take care to leave some base intact. this will keep the sprout intact once you quarter them. 

dice onions.

step three:
chop garlic & rosemary. set aside. 

step four:
remove the skin from the sweet potatoes and dice into about one inch cubes.

step five:
in a large skillet over medium high heat get 1 tablespoon of coconut oil nice and hot. sauté diced sweet potatoes until golden brown. right around five minutes. depending on your stove. once golden remove from skillet & set aside. 

step six:
again working over a medium high heat add 1 tablespoon coconut oil to pan. add brussels sprouts & onion. sauté another five minutes or until onions are translucent and sprouts have a good golden color in parts. remove from pan and set aside. 

step seven:
add walnuts, garlic, rosemary & nutmeg to the pan. sauté for a minute or two. just enough to warm the nuts & soften the garlic. take care not to burn the garlic. 

step eight:
finally add potatoes & sprouts / onion mix to the pan with the nuts. saute all together for 1-3 minutes. salt & pepper to taste. 

step nine:
plate, serve & eat!

hope you enjoy! let me know if you try it out.
