I am teaming up with other San Diego food bloggers and Melissa’s Produce for an ultra fun produce challenge. Melissa sent us a gorgeous box of their coolest produce including a bag of red quinoa, Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes, baby Brussels sprouts, shredded leeks, fava beans, tangerines…the list goes on. We needed to take 3 to 4 of those ingredients and transform them into something really tasty.
Therefore, the vegan breakfast hash. You don’t need dairy and meat for protein when you are working with quinoa and Fava beans. One cup of Fava beans has 13g of protein and quinoa has 8g of protein in one cup cooked.
This vegan hash is not only for breakfast – we actually had it for dinner as a stand-alone dish. It was super filling and full of fresh flavors. You just can’t go wrong, in so many ways, with this vegan dish.
