EATS: Rehashing the hash!

Leave a comment

June 7, 2013 by annmquintero

Well, my Amazons, as my time in Charleston draws to a close, I find myself playing that old game of Clean out the Fridge. This frequently leads me back to our old friend hash. As we’ve discussed before, you can toss ANYTHING into a hash and turn your leftovers or scraps into something colorful and delicious.

I found myself with some more beautiful sausage (Rosemary and Cabernet) from the meat guy from the Farmer’s Market that I just hadn’t gotten to yet. Sometimes I buy things blindly, assuming that they’ll find a meal to join, but these were sitting there on the shelf, lonely as a nerd on prom night. I also had a couple of zucchini that weren’t getting any younger, a couple sweet potatoes, half a red onion, half a red bell pepper, and a bunch of eggs. Perfect! Beautiful group date to the Clean out the Fridge Prom!

What you’ll need:

Large skillet

Knife

Cutting board

Spoon

A few bowls for organization

IMG_0464Fresh sausage, 2 links

Sweet potatoes, diced

Red onion, diced

Zucchini, diced

Red bell pepper, diced

Eggs, 1 per person

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

IMG_0465Remove the casing from the sausage and place in hot skillet with a little oil, breaking up into bite-sized chunks. Once the sausage is browned a bit, add the potatoes. Remember to allow browning by not stirring too often.

(The order of addition to the pan is all about what takes the longest to cook, and what can withstand extra cooking. A general rule of thumb is in order of most to least dense. The one exception would be aromatics like onions and garlic which will flavor the things that come after them.)

As the sweet potatoes soften, and ideally, take on a little browning, add the red onion and salt. Once the onions are softened, add the rest of your veggies and toss to combine. Now is a perfect time to add a little more salt and pepper.

Let the whole lot continue cooking until everything’s cooked through, but not mush, stirring occasionally. About 10-15 minutes.

When you like the state of your veggies, get your eggs ready. I recommend cracking them into a bowl before adding them to the pan in case of shell fragments. And in case you hit a stinker. Place the eggs gently on top of your hash, cover with a lid and let cook for 3-5 minutes, depending on how runny you like your yolks.

That’s it! Great way to use up your odds and ends!

Thank you to everyone who helped make yesterday a truly magical birthday. I'm so fortunate to know I am loved, supported, and truly blessed. . . . 2018 was a huge year of challenges and growth, like nothing I've experienced before. I'm ready for you, 2019. Smarter, faster, and stronger than ever before. Let's see what we can accomplish. . . . #happybirthdaytome #ihaveamazingfriends #thankful
Growth is an essential human need. . . To progress. To change. . . Sometimes we need to look back down the path to see how far we've come. Today the past reached back (via Facebook) to show me how far I've climbed. . . Never doubt that you have the ability to grow. To change. And yes, I believe that people do change! Oftentimes it's so subtle we miss it. . . So far 2018 has held many challenges; the biggest difference from 2008 is now I can see the opportunity wrapped inside them. . . #tbt #progressnotperfection #winning #fitpro #curlyhairdontcare #growthmindset @teameqx #greenwichaveequinox #equinox #itsnotfitnessitslife #committosomething
#thatmomentwhen your guided meditation series gets featured by @team_eqx 😄 🙏 . . For many years I held myself back with the belief that meditation was too "out there" for fitness and no one would get it. I'm so blessed to work on a company and with a team that's so excited for me to share my practice with them. . . #blessed #meditation #trainerlife #equinox #alignmentyoga #wellbeing #levelup . . . #Repost @team_eqx and @jordon.tatishi - - - - - - Mid- Month Meditation Check In w/ @darlene.coach . Thank you for this guided opportunity to reflect & focus on what sensations my body has been experiencing the last 2 weeks. Releasing tensions and centering my body.
#tbt to our last sunset in Thailand. I miss that magic island and all my loves from TTC. A far cry from a rainy day in Midtown Manhattan. . . Suns set, seasons change. This has been a year of transformations so far, and there's still more to come. . . Don't be afraid of change. It's our only constant. It's one of our few lifelong companions, alone with your heartbeat and your breath. You can fight it or you can embrace it ~ one leaks energy and one invites you to leave behind what isn't working. . . How have you reached towards change this year? . . . #kohphagan #progressnotperfection #changeisgood #growthmindset #anothergrowthopportunity #washyourface #thailandyoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #ttc #yogawarrior #yogateacher

Wise words from my teacher: ・・・ For years I saw yoga as the goal, sacrificing myself on its alter. I now see yoga as magnificent tool, or actually a box of tools, aimed to help us live life in its full potential: health on all levels and acceptance on all levels, so we can experience the freedom and joy within us. ❤️ -Tal . . . #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga . . . . . . . . . . #alignmentyogattc #lunaalignmentyoga #alignment #alignmentyoga #yogateacher #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogateacherlife #yogateachertrainingthailand #yogateachertrainingcourse #innerstate #yogastudents #ytt200 #wellbeing #thailandyoga #yogathailand #kohphanganyoga #yogakohphangan #pranayamagarden #instayoga #yogateachertrainings #yogateachertrainingkohphangan
