  • 10-inch skillet


  • 4 cups chopped red potatoes I used baby potatoes cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups vegetables I used bell peppers, onions, asparagus, zucchini, and mushrooms. Choose what you like
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Bring 6 cups water and 1 teaspoon of salt to a boil. Add potatoes and boil until slightly tender.
  • Drain potatoes and set aside to cool. This can also be done the night before and stored in the fridge.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in your skillet. Once it is hot, add in your potatoes and veggies. Sprinnkle with salt and pepper.
  • Cook, turning once or twice until the veggies are browned. Add in mince garlic and cook another minute.
  • You can top with cheese if you like.
  • This is delicious eaten right away, but also really good used as meal prep. Simply reheat in the microwave.
  • Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!


  1. I like to par boil my potatoes. What I mean by that is I boil them in salted water for about 7-10 minutes until they are very slightly tender. You don't want them to be cooked all the way because they will finish cooking in the pan. I do this is so that the potatoes can cook at the same time as the other vegetables.
  2. If you put the potatoes in raw they take a lot longer to cook than the other veggies, so par boiling reduces the cooking time substantially. By doing this the meal becomes a very quick breakfast that's easy to make on a busy day.
  3. You can use any vegetables you choose in this hash, just make sure they are fairly uniformly cut so they will cook at the same time.
  4. Make sure not to overcook the vegetables in the hash. You want them to hold their shape and texture without being too mushy.
  5. If you choose to add meat into the hash, you won't need to add the oil. As the meat cooks it releases enough oil for the hash.
  6. This hash makes for great meal prep. It's easy to grab in the morning, throw it on a plate, and put it in the microwave, and you're ready to go.
