In my Paleo Acorn Squash Soup recipe I mentioned fellow clean eating & Paleo minded friends can be better sources for easy recipes rather than the labor and multi-ingredient recipes found online.
Well, here’s another example of that theory.
Recently two friends shared a recipe that called for sweet potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash and your choice of sausage. One friend uses smoked paprika and the other friend uses Italian seasonings.
Both rave about the sweet and savory profile that the sausage, seasonings and sweet potato chunks create.
Well I took their tips and whipped up a version myself. It’s an easy recipe that takes about 30 minutes, including prep and cook time.
What I call it:
Sweet Potato Hash (Actually I call it ‘all mine’ because I’m the only one that eats it in my house)
What’s in it to create 4 small servings:
2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil
1 sweet potato (Price varies)
1-2 stalks of cauliflower (not the whole cauliflower, just a few stalks) (99 cents at Aldi)
1 whole zucchini ($1.99 for a 4 pack at Aldi)
1/2 to 1 whole sausage link chopped (price varies)
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning (sprinkled generously) 99 cents at Aldi
1 teaspoon of Muffuletta (olive salad mix) Price varies
Optional: A sprinkle of chia seeds
What to do:
Grade or finely chop the veggies
Chop, dice or slice the sausage
Heat a skillet with the coconut oil
Dump in all the veggies
Sprinkle seasoning and stir in the Muffuletta
Continuously stir until the veggies/meat are done to your taste. I like my sausage caramelized to burnt in some areas.
You can sprinkle in the chia seeds at any point. I love these little powerhouses that add omega 3s to the dish.
Creates 4 small servings.
NON-Paleo option – add Feta cheese on top and turn this into a primal dish that is delicious.
