Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash
Vegetarian | Serves 4 
Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small brown onion, diced
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1.5 cm cubes (approx 4 cups of cubes)
  • 1 cup spinach leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes (if spicy food is preferred)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 green onion, sliced
Method:
  1. Heat a large shallow pan on medium heat with olive oil.
  2. Add the diced onion, capsicum and mushrooms to the pan and sauté for one minute to soften.
  3. Add the diced sweet potato and spices to the pan. Cook the sweet potato for 10-12 minutes, stirring often. Place a lid on the pan for the last 5 minutes to soften the sweet potato until fork tender.
  4. Add the kale and stir for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the kale is wilted.
  5. Use a spatula to create 4 wells in the hash. Crack an egg into each well and cook until the eggs are done to your liking. You can add a lid to the pan to cook the eggs through faster.
  6. Scatter feta over just before eggs are cooked to your liking.
  7. Remove the breakfast hash from the heat.
  8. Season with salt and pepper and top with sliced green onion. Serve immediately.
  9. Eat and enjoy!

Nutrient/ Vitamin

Ingredient

Hair Benefit

Biotin (A type of B Vitamin)

Eggs, Sweet Potato, Mushrooms

Keratin is an essential protein that makes up your hair, with biotin proven to improve your body’s keratin infrastructure. 

Sufficient uptake of biotin plays a significant role in the growth of healthy, thick hair. It's also one of the only natural hair loss treatments backed up by science.

 Vitamin C

 Capsicum

Vitamin C is a key component used by the body to create a protein known as collagen. Collagen’s amino acids help strengthen the skin that contains your hair roots and build hair proteins, making them essential for hair growth.

Vitamin A

Capsicum

 

Vitamin A (also known as retinol) is an antioxidant micronutrient that aids in the body’s cell and tissue development. This development can help the scalp produce healthy sebum to nourish and protect the hair. This can help strengthen hair and minimise breakage.

 Calcium

 Eggs (yolks)

When looking at Calcium uptake in the body, it’s essential to also turn our attention to Vitamin D. This vitamin assists with normal calcium breakdown (and therefore you’re able to maintain hair growth).
