Recipe slightly adapted from: "The Chia Cookbook" by Janie HoffmanSweet 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 onions 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. You could also substitute with (2) tablespoons of organic veggie broth to keep the recipe oil-free. Just make sure the veggie broth doesn't contain citric acid.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.
