Zucchini and Sweet Potato Hash is so delicious! Add some onion and chopped mushroom as aromatics, and you’ll be so pleased you’re eating healthfully!
This summer has been pretty wild for me. We started it out with my husband’s surgery and are ending it with my autoimmune diagnosis. I’m still holding out a smidgen of hope that Dr. Crunchy got it wrong and that The Irishman will say it’s something minor. But, in the meantime, I’m taking a look at my life to see where I can be making healthier choices.
This Zucchini and Sweet Potato Hash definitely makes the cut. Not only does it use up two alternative vegetables — alternative meaning things my kids would definitely raise an eyebrow over — but it does so in a very delicious way.

I don’t really know if my kids would like it, but I don’t really care. I’ve been making batches and batches of it for myself, and it’s kinda becoming addictive.
However, for the record, at least one sweet potato-hater outside my family has been declared a fan, so there’s that.
I’ve been cooking up this hash for the last few weeks in big batches. I’ll have it with a fried egg, sausage, or cooked chicken, mostly for breakfasts and lunches. It’s really good served with a little chopped avocado, in case you’d like to add some healthy fat into the mix.
It’s a great way to use up all the zucchini that by now is coming out your ears. The slight bitterness of the zucchini balances really well with the sweetness of the sweet potato.
For the ingredient-minded, this Zucchini and Sweet Potato Hash is gluten-free and perfect for Whole30.
