When I was a little girl, hash was what you did with leftovers. St. Patrick’s Day leftovers became corned beef hash. Sunday’s roast beef turned into beef dip sandwiches on Monday, and if there was any left from that, Mom ground it with potatoes and formed the mix into pan-fried hash patties. My brother says, “Mom could stretch food further than a rubber band.”

Even fancy steakhouses serve hash for brunch–they know what sells.  Treat this kale, potato and tempeh hash as your hash template, subtracting and adding veggies you have on hand. Use up leftovers or make yours from scratch–the homemade hash world is yours, and the options are endless.

There is a guy in Portland Oregon named Clark who’s really into hash. Legal hash. His cookbook, Hashcapades: The Art of the Perfect Hash Adventure, compiles clever recipes for all kinds of hash incarnations, from basic meat and potatoes to all out gourmet. His recipe for red flannel hash, crimson with beets and red cabbage, would be a delicious vegan side dish.  Clark’s hashcapades inspires this healthy vegetarian hash.

    Let’s cook some tempeh together! Because Tempeh is a fermented soy–many say it is better for us than tofu. Reply · 13 May, 2014
