This recipe makes a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner dish and is complemented wonderfully by the addition of eggs (as you can see in the variation below). There’s something so enduringly satisfying about the combination of sweet potato, sweet broccoli, and spicy chorizo. SERVES 4

PREP TIME: 10 minutes

COOK TIME: 20 minutes

2 tablespoons grass-fed butter or ghee

½ onion, diced

1 garlic clove, minced

2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

½ pound chorizo or Italian sausage

1 small head broccoli, finely chopped

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Sauté the onion and garlic until the onion is slightly translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes, and cook for another 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chorizo, break it up with a wooden spoon, and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook until the meat is no longer pink and bits of it begin to get crunchy and browned, another 5 minutes.
  3. Add the broccoli and stir. Cook for 5 more minutes, and serve hot.

VARIATION 1 BREAKFAST BROCCOLI HASH: Serve with fried eggs. Crack them right into the pan you used for the hash, and cook on one side until the white is no longer runny. Carefully flip and cook for a minute or two on the other side, depending on how done you want the yolk.

VARIATION 2 GROUND BEEF–BROCCOLI HASH: Swap the chorizo or sausage for ground beef (the cook time should be about the same). Chorizo and Italian sausage are both on the spicy side, so swapping them out for ground beef will make this dish a bit milder.

PREP TIP: Dice your sweet potatoes as soon as you bring them home from the store; cutting them is often the most time-consuming part of any recipe that calls for sweet potatoes.
