A few days ago I had made an experimental vegan lentil dish that went a bit awry…hubby was more than questioning this reduced animal product diet we are trying. So tonight for supper I wanted to make something really flavourful to try and win him over. Please note that this is a vegetarian dish that can be made vegan with a few small changes.
Add 1/2 a chopped onion to a frying pan heated over medium high heat. Sauté the onion in just enough water to keep the onion from sticking. Once the onion has browned add 3 cloves minced garlic. Cook for a minute while the flavours of the garlic start to open up.
Add the diced sweet and white potatoes and cook in a little water about 20 minutes until tender. You may have to continue to add a bit if water to keep potatoes from sticking.
Once potatoes are soft add seasonings, beans, corn, and salsa.
Mix to combine and heat the corn and beans.
In a small bowl beat together four eggs. Scramble the eggs into the hash and cook through. Top with cheese and salsa.
For a vegan option mix in one block of tofu which has been drained and crumbled. Heat through and top with vegan cheese like shreds.
