Balanced vegan breakfast
This tempeh hash makes a balanced vegan breakfast. Tempeh is the main protein source and potatoes provide a hearty helping of carbohydrates.
Add red bell pepper and onion for sweetness and kale for a healthy helping of greens.
Pro tip: Sprinkle with nutritional yeast just before serving for an extra burst of flavor – and a dose of Vitamin B12, which is important for nerve health and only naturally occurs in animal products.
How to make vegan tempeh hash
To make a vegan hash, there are just four simple steps:
1. Steam tempeh (optional)
2. Chop up vegetables and potatoes
3. Season with a savory & smokey homemade marinade
4. Cook in a large skillet until the potatoes are crisp
Crispy potatoes are definitely the best part of a hash!
Do I have to use a cast iron skillet?
Any non-stick skillet will work for a stove-top hash. Cast iron skillets are useful if you want to transfer the hash to the oven.
In this recipe you can use any large non-stick or cast iron skillet.
What kind of potatoes work in a hash?
Starchy potatoes like russets work best in a hash because they become crisp and golden during roasting.
Waxy red or new potatoes (small potatoes) become soft and creamy during cooking, so they don't crisp up as well.
Why do you steam tempeh?
Have you ever noticed that slightly tangy flavor in tempeh? Steaming removes that astringent flavor that some may not enjoy.
Steaming tempeh before cooking also softens it so that it more easily soak up seasonings.
