With the new school year started, and evenings becoming more hectic with homework and baths and getting the kids to bed really early, I’ve been looking for new dinner ideas that are healthy and easy and not one of the five dinners that I’ve been rotating for the last six months.
We eat lean beef quite a bit (tacos and bunless hamburgers being two of those above-mentioned five dinners), so when I saw this recipe for Sweet Potato Beef Hash, I thought it would be easy and kid-friendly, and it turned out to be both. It’s also chock-full of protein, fiber, good carbs, iron, vitamins B6 and B12, and other good-for-you stuff.
The original recipe called for just sweet potatoes, but since at least one of my children will not eat sweet potatoes, I added a few baby gold potatoes as well. You can wrap the hash up in a whole wheat tortilla, or even a gluten free one, but I served it with baked tortilla chips.
