Let’s get cooking!
VEGAN SWEET POTATO BREAKFAST SKILLET
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
1 large sweet potato, cut into 1 inch chunks (about 2 Cups)
1 onion, diced
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Cup chopped peppers
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
Salt & pepper to taste
1 Cup chopped tomatoes
2 Cups baby spinach
Green onion for garnish
Oil for cooking
Cooked vegan bacon (optional)
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Add the chopped sweet potato to a pot of boiling salted water and boil them for about 5 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain and set aside to allow to cool.
To a heavy pan or cast iron skillet, add about 2 Tbsp of oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sprinkle with salt. Cook until soft and add the mushrooms and garlic. Cook for another 5 minutes until they begin to brown. Add the peppers and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside.
Add another 2 Tbsp of oil to the pan and add the sweet potatoes once the oil is very hot. Fry over medium-high heat until they start to brown. Season to taste with salt and add the smoked paprika and garlic powder. Toss the sweet potato to brown on all sides using a flat spatula to avoid mashing it while doing so.
Add the vegetables back to the skillet along with the spinach and tomatoes. Fold everything together carefully to avoid breaking up or mashing the sweet potatoes. Remove the pan from the heat, add the vegan bacon (if using) and garnish with the green onion.
Serve hot and enjoy!
