Sweet Potato and Tenderstem Broccoli Hash

Sweet potato and Tenderstem broccoli make a delicious and nutritious combination that’s packed with vitamins, minerals and fibre.

The sweet flavour and tender texture of the Tenderstem and sweet potato make this dish a good choice and helps you well on your way to your five-a-day.

Serves 4 adults

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 35 minutes

You’ll need:

750g sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

200g Tenderstem broccoli, halved widthways

1 tbsp olive oil

6 rashers dry cure streaky bacon, cut into pieces

1 red onion, thinly sliced

4 eggs, poached or fried, to serve


What to do:


To make the hash, steam the sweet potatoes for 10 minutes. Add the Tenderstem to the sweet potatoes and cook for a further 4 minutes until both vegetables are just tender.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the bacon and onion for 5 minutes until the onions have softened.

Add the sweet potato and Tenderstem to the pan, pat down with a wooden spoon and cook for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring once or twice to break up the golden crust that forms on the bottom.

Spoon the hash onto plates and top each serving with an egg.



The secret to a good poached egg is to use the freshest eggs possible. Fill a non-stick frying pan with water and bring to a gentle simmer. Crack in the eggs (make sure they sit below the surface of the water) and cook gently for 3 – 8 minutes until the eggs are set to your liking. Drain with a slotted spoon and serve.



Softly-cooked eggs are not recommended for children under 5 so please make sure the yolks are cooked all the way through.



Try adding a handful of grated Cheddar to the hash at the end of step 3.

To help reduce the fat, saturated fat and salt try using grilled back bacon instead.
