Spicy Tempeh-Bacon Sweet Potato Hash [Vegan]

This Recipe is :




Cook Time



For the Tempeh Bacon:

  • 1 8-ounce block tempeh, sliced into very thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

For the Hash:

  • 1-2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 portobello mushroom cap, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 heaping cup fresh kale, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped


  1. Prepare the tempeh bacon. Lay tempeh slices in glass baking dish to marinate. Whisk together oil, maple syrup, paprika, chipotle, and cumin and then drizzle over tempeh. Marinate for at least 15 minutes or overnight in fridge.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place tempeh slices on hot skillet and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Don’t add tempeh until skillet is hot. Once cooked, remove the tempeh strips from the skillet and set aside on a plate or cutting board.
  3. Prepare the hash. Add oil, onions, and sweet potatoes to skillet, cover, and cook until sweet potatoes are tender, about 12 minutes.
  4. Roughly chop tempeh bacon strips and add them back into the skillet. Add bell pepper, mushroom, oregano, nutritional yeast, and garlic and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes. Add kale and cook until wilted, 3-4 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in fresh basil.

This is a really nice recipe. I am always in search for tasty recipes like these because, if I have to stick to healthy eating I need recipes which do not make me compromise on taste. I lost 20 pounds in last 50 days by walking 45 minutes a day and eating healthy (reducing carb and sugar intake). I use most of the recipes from an ebook called metabolic cooking. It comes with more than 250 recipes (including smoothies and desserts). It is still available for download here http://ow.ly/Znq2C . I read about it in a leading health magazine, as per which it is one of the most downloaded recipe ebook of 2015.
