I’ve been trying to mix up my breakfast choices a little more because I’m such a creature of habit and these Sweet Potato Hash Browns hit the spot. Smoothies and oatmeal variations are my usual choices since they are so quick, filling, and nutrient-dense. But there are many other plant-based recipes for breakfast and this Sweet Potato Hash Brown recipe is one of them.
Have a look at the recipe index for some other breakfast ideas. You won’t feel deprived at all when you make these hearty, delicious sweet potato hash browns.
Toasty, sweet, smoky, and savory…..overall just satisfying. This recipe doesn’t use oil to keep this authentically no fat dish to splurge on.
Serve for breakfast or any meal of the day. Use the lighter sweet potato or the bright orange yams (actually I think they both are sweet potatoes.) As you may know, they are full of excellent plant-based nutrition.
Not only are these babies dynamic, but sweet spuds also offer a super-packed powerful punch of plant-based nutrition. Sweet potatoes (and yams) are an excellent source of vitamin A, in the form of beta-carotene, which is what feeds and nourishes our skin.
They are also a very good source of fiber, vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium (which makes sweet potatoes a great post-workout snack), niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.
