I consider it a personal challenge when I have a few stray veggies in the fridge and a container of eggs. It’s not really a food emergency or worth going to the store unless I am out of half and half for the coffee. With the eggs, I could make an omelet (how predictable), or I could bust out some spices and a piece of stale naan bread from the freezer and make the following:
Curried Sweet Potato Hash with Egg Over Easy and Grilled Naan
This is a toss it all together recipe, so I didn’t measure. Do the best you can with what you have on hand. In these photos:
- 1 small onion diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper diced
- ½ green pepper diced
- 1 handful edemame from the freezer
- 1 medium sweet potato diced
- 1 egg, over easy
- 1 piece of Naan bread, grilled
- 1 tsp hot curry powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
Dice up the veggies, approximately the same size. In a sauté pan or whatever is clean frankly, spray a little oil and add the sweet potato dice first, it will take a little longer to cook, when that becomes a bit soft, add all the rest of the veggies. Cook until just tender. Sprinkle mixture with curry, pinch of salt and pinch of pepper. While the hash is cooking, push to once side of the pan and fry the egg over easy. Over an open flame or in the oven warm up the naan bread. To assemble. Naan on the bottom, hash, fried egg.
Feelin’ really crazy? Butter your naan bread with peanut butter and slice up a banana on top of it before adding the hash and egg…this is called a Tickle.
For lunch this same day, I took the leftover hash, put it in a sauce pan, with a can of coconut milk, a can of water and some additional curry powder. Soup. :)
