Would you like to add more veggies to your breakfast game, but can’t really handle them raw in the morning? Trust me, you are not alone here. I would probably get sick if I was supposed to chew on half of raw capsicum for brekky. However, like with a wave of a magic wand, I can eat almost the whole thing if roasted. Preferably as a part of hash. Like in this Beetroot and Sweet Potato Hash.
Roasting veggies makes them not only more appetizing to me, but also much easier to digest. Thanks to this cooking process I can easily eat a fair bit of plants, being supplied with a proper amount of fibre and vitamins and not starving (usually) in half an hour.
If you follow me a bit, you will notice that I just started my first Whole30. And I couldn’t be happier for thinking ahead and prepping this Beetroot and Sweet Potato Hash for the first few days. It just made my mornings easier. I can heat it simply in a frying pan or even in a microwave (which I don’t recommend much though, as it makes most of meals like this soggy), top it with an egg or sausage and enjoy. Furthermore it’s also a good choice for the first few days of the Whole30 because of the starchy vegetables which would provide enough carbohydrates to make the transition to a new diet more considerate to the body.
