Sweet Potato and 'Canadian Bacon' Hash

Try the vegan Canadian bacon slices from Yves Veggie to make this dish!  You can serve the hash as a side, or as the centerpiece of a hearty weekend brunch.

Place 4 cups diced and peeled sweet potato and 2 cups diced red potato in a saucepan.  Cover with water and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes; drain and set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add 1 cup chopped vegan Canadian bacon and cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add 1 cup chopped green bell pepper and 2/3 cup chopped green onions; cook for 2 minutes.

Add the cooked potatoes, along with 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. celery seed, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, and 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg; cook for 4 minutes.

(Note: I realized I had celery salt instead of celery seeds, so I used 1/2 teaspoon of that but omitted the 1/4 tsp. salt in the step above).

Finally, stir in 1/4 cup broth and 1 tablespoon cider vinegar; stir or toss gently until the liquid is absorbed.

You'll have 6 servings of 1 cup and 210 calories each.
