recipe :: brussel sprout hash

day 5.  breakfast.

As my  husband was making the usual Saturday morning breakfast {homemade pancakes with real maple syrup, bacon and fruit}, he kindly prepared a separate meal for me.  Brussel Sprout Hash, he calls it. Filling, packed with flavor {it has a kick}, and 28 day plan approved, I ate up the entire pan…all 357 calories of deliciousness.

{a tip from my sister:  spicy flavors help curb cravings.}

:: ingredients ::

1 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil

1/2 medium yellow onion, medium dice

3 small red/new potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

8 brussel sprouts, quartered

1/4 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 fresh oregano stem

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

pinch red pepper flakes

:: preparation ::

In a skillet, heat olive oil on medium-high heat.  Saute onions for 2 minutes.  Add potatoes and brussel sprouts; season with salt and pepper.  Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally (be careful not to stir too much as you will lose caramelized color and flavor).  Add yellow bell peppers, oregano, paprika and red pepper flakes.  Saute for 5 minutes or until peppers are soft.  Reduce heat to medium-low.  Add garlic.  Cover until potatoes are done to your liking.  {For me, that’s 6-7 minutes and the potatoes have firm outsides, soft insides.}  Enjoy!
