Sweet potato hash, a delicious, healthy, and super easy-to-make side dish that only requires 8 nutritious and affordable ingredients and just 25 minutes!


  • 12 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes (450 g), cubed
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet, add the sweet potato cubes, cover with a lid, and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. You don’t need to peel the sweet potatoes if you don’t want to.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients, stir, uncover, and cook over medium-high heat for about 10 to 15 minutes or until tender and golden brown.
  3. Serve immediately (I added some chopped fresh parsley on top) with some chopped tempeh, seitan, tempeh bacon, or even vegan bacon.
  4. Keep the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


  • You can peel the sweet potatoes if you want to, but I think the recipe works best with unpeeled sweet potatoes.
  • Feel free to use any type of sweet potatoes. You could also use regular potatoes.
  • Although you can use any kind of oil, I always use extra virgin oils when possible because they’re healthier.
  • If you don’t eat oil, feel free to replace it with water or vegetable stock instead.
  • I suggest you make this recipe with fresh garlic and onion; however, garlic powder and onion powder are also good alternatives.
  • Nutritional info has been calculated by using 1 tbsp of oil.
