I mixed a sweet potato with Yukon golds and tossed in some bell pepper, mushrooms, and greens to make these delicious Vegan Breakfast Potatoes.


Units Scale
  • 1 medium sweet potato, diced (about 9 oz or 250g)
  • 2 Yukon gold potatoes, diced (about 10.5 oz or 300g)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 8 oz sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 1 Tbls low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Kala Namak black salt (see note below)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups leafy greens (spinach. chard, kale, etc)

Note:  Indian Black Salt, or Kala Namack -  gives this a slight "eggy" flavor since it is a breakfast recipe, but you can just use regular salt and adjust it to taste.  I have an Amazon link in my store. 


  1. Dice the potatoes into 1/2" cubes (I used my 7-1 chopper) and add to a large pot.
  2. Add enough water to cover and the 1 teaspoon of salt
  3. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 3-5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  4. Add the diced onion and bell pepper to a large skillet and saute in 2 Tbls of veg stock or water just until softened.
  5. Add the minced garlic and stir just until fragrant - about 30 seconds.
  6. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook just until they begin to lose their water, then drain the potatoes and add them along with the seasoning.
  7. Stir to combine (I used a spatula) and heat on med-high heat until the skillet begins to look dry or the potatoes start to brown.  (Note:  the mushroom water keeps the potatoes from sticking)
  8. Remove from heat and add 2 cups of your favorite greens, then cover.
  9. Stir and serve with your garnish of choice.  I added a little bit of my red chile sauce and cilantro and it was divine!
