Want a satisfying meal that won’t spike your sugar levels? Try my version of the SWEET POTATO HASH with bacon, sundried tomatoes and baby spinach. A healthy no fuss meal for brunch or anytime of the day!
4-5 rashes of bacon or ham
I large orange sweet potato, cut into ½ inch dice
½ yellow or red onion, diced
115 grams sun-dried tomatoes (in oil and drained)
A large handful of baby spinach
Coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 large eggs
¼ cup fresh basil leaves , roughly chopped for garnish
1.Brown the bacon in a frying pan (if you have a cast-iron pan pls use that) over medium-high heat, then add the diced sweet potato. Stir the sweet potatoes to coat them.
2. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 5 minutes then remove the lid and continue to cook, flipping the sweet potatoes until they are brown on all sides, about 10 minutes.
3. Once the sweet potatoes are browned, add the onion, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix well.
4. Cook for another 5 minutes or until the onions and spinach have softened. Time to add the eggs. Create 4 wells in the hash, then carefully crack the eggs into the wells, cover with a lid and cook until the eggs are cooked to your preference. Garnish with chopped basil before serving.
And there you have it. A healthy low GI dish that will not spike your sugar levels (which is linked to fatigue and weight gain) but actually help ensure a balanced and regular source of energy. Perfect as a post-work out meal!
