Mexican Bean and Sweet Potato Hash

Mexican Bean and Sweet Potato Hash

On the menu for this weekend is this Mexican bean and sweet potato hash. A healthy, filling and packed with flavour breakfast/brunch for the whole family to enjoy!

I usually go for sweet breakfasts, but on the weekend I crave something savoury. The hubby is more of a savoury person in general and prefers savoury breakfasts, s0 on weekend mornings he takes over the kitchen. It makes a really nice change having something savoury and for me it signals the start of the weekend. I now associate weekends with a savoury brunch. It’s also nice because it means I can sit back and let the hubby take over. We take our time and chit chat while he prepares it, so it’s always a really nice and relaxing way to start the weekend after a hectic week! 

I’ve always thought that potatoes and beans make such a yummy combination. Add in some spices, lime juice, spring onions and coriander and you end up with something so mouthwateringly delicious, especially when it’s all topped off with some avocado. A lovely combination of starchy carbs, protein, fibre and healthy fats. 

As well as a yummy brunch, this Mexican bean and sweet potato hash would also make a great lunch, dinner or side dish. You can pack up any leftovers in Tupperware and take it with you to work for a flavoursome lunch. The recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free and nut-free, so it’s suitable for anyone with those food allergies/intolerances.
