Last week I made this delicious Kale Walnut Almond Pesto from our book of the month, Joyous Health, by Joy McCarthy. It is so good that I have been slathering it on everything, with one of those things being this potato hash dish that I made for breakfast!
I love making potato hash dishes, but I often have them for dinner because I don’t usually leave myself enough time in the morning to both cook and eat at home before leaving for work. Normally I only give myself enough time to make a quick smoothie that I can bring with me and drink on my way. However, yesterday morning I knew I had some left over boiled potatoes, and I had a little bit of extra time, so I decided to cook myself a warm breakfast! Taking some time to sit and eat my breakfast instead of rushing out of the door with it was such a relaxing start to my day! I am now rethinking my usual strategy of sleeping in as long as possible and getting ready in the shortest amount of time – trading it in for waking up a bit earlier, and feeling like I have all the time in the world… *cue theme song*
If you are someone who often does not eat breakfast at home as you are always rushing out the door, I really recommend picking a day to get up a little earlier and make yourself a nice, big, warm breakfast! Give yourself a moment in the morning to feel like you have all the time in the world.
- boiled potatoes (as much as you want, any kind you want)
- finely chopped red onion
- smoked salmon
- Warm up some oil (I use coconut or grapeseed) on medium heat in a frying pan then add the boiled potatoes and chopped red onion. Fry them up until they are as crispy as you like!
- Put the potatoes in a bowl and mix in your pesto
- Top with avocado and smoked salmon
As long as your potatoes are pre-boiled, this is really fast and easy to make! Enjoy 🙂
