Karielyn's Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions
Here are some of my expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Sweet Potatoes: These will need to be peeled and cubed before adding them to your skillet. In addition, you could also use white potatoes as a substitute.
Onion: Any variety of onion will work, however, I do not recommend using a sweet onion since this is a savory recipe.
Avocado Oil: This can be substituted with organic extra-virgin olive oil.
Garlic: Freshly crushed garlic will give the best flavor and nutritional benefits, but it can be substituted with organic ground garlic.
Red Pepper Flakes + Ground Black Pepper + Ground Cayenne Pepper: Feel free to adjust the amounts to your preferences or even omit if you don't like spicy foods or will be serving this dish to children.
Himalayan Pink Salt: This is my salt of preference, however, it can always be substituted with sea salt.
Red Bell Pepper: This can be substituted with orange or yellow pepper, or even omitted if you prefer.
Spinach: This will give the recipe extra nutritional benefits but it could be substituted with kale or arugula or even omitted if you prefer.
Chia Seeds: Again, this ingredient gives the recipe extra nutritional benefits and a slightly "crunchy" texture, but they can be omitted if you don't like them or don't have any on hand.
Serving Size: This recipe will make approximately (4) cups of hash. Nutritional information is for (1) cup which is (1) serving.
