I like breakfast has and I like going to Farmer’s Markets. It only makes sense to merge the two concepts.
Fresh food from your local Farmers Market will make a great for a great Breakfast Hash.
One of my many escapes in life is to go to Farmers Markets. I escape to sweet heaven when I go to a great Farmers Market full of beautiful vegetables, fruit, cheeses, breads, hand crafts, and hand-made jewelry. It does something to me. I love how people grow produce or make items that are near and dear to their hearts and share it with the rest of the world. I mean, how can you not feel happiness in a place like that? What I love to do the most when I go to a Farmers Market, is to buy fruits and veggies and make something amazing with what I buy. It’s kind of like a “Chopped” challenge that I like to give to myself. The only difference is that I am actually choosing my ingredients. Now that Farmers Markets are opening for the summer, the first dish that I made was a Farmers Market Breakfast Hash!
Now that I am pregnant my tastebuds have changed some. I use to really enjoy eating vegetables by themselves. Now, I can’t stand them. I have to cover or hide them the best way I can just for me to eat them. There is nothing wrong with that necessarily, but it is difficult for me to enjoy them now a days. This Farmer’s Market Breakfast Hash has a lot of veggies. I put it in red bell pepper, kale, zucchini, and squash. That is a lot of incredible goodness in one breakfast dish that is good for the heart and the body. The great thing about a breakfast hash is that you can add or eliminate anything you want. You don’t have to stick with the vegetables that I put in this breakfast hash, you can do whatever you want. You can do a mixture of regular potatoes, sweet potatoes, and roasted beets; you can use all bell peppers (yellow, green, red, and orange); you can use tomatoes, spinach, and feta cheese; or whatever. Get crazy and creative. You can also choose a different type of protein such as a different type of sausage, bacon, or seitan!
The point of this entire breakfast dish is to allow you to get creative with your meals while making them healthy. This is a dish that is also perfect to eat with fruit so that is double the healthy servings that will start your day. But if you need something savory or a little something that will make this breakfast hash a little more “guilty”, you can sprinkle with a little cheese or make some hollandaise sauce or make this Paleo Hollandaise Sauce. I hope you enjoy it !
