Sweet Potato, Broccoli & Wild Rice Hash


Cooking this hash in cast iron ensures you'll get crusty bits, but any nonstick skillet will work fine. Serve with your favorite hot sauce.

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus 1 teaspoon, divided

  • 1 pound sweet potato (1 large), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (3 1/2 cups)

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • 2 cups small broccoli florets

  • 3 small spring onions or scallions, sliced, whites and greens separated, divided

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 cup cooked wild rice or wild rice blend (see Tip)

  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon

  • 4 large eggs


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring often, until lightly browned and softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Add broccoli and 1 tablespoon oil; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add spring onion (or scallion) whites and garlic; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in rice, spring onion (or scallion) greens, parsley and tarragon and remove from heat. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

  2. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the pan over medium heat. Crack eggs into the pan and season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook to desired doneness, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes for a runny yolk and 3 1/2 to 4 minutes for a firmer yolk. Serve the eggs on top of the hash.


Cultivated wild rice can take up to an hour to cook. To get that delicious earthy flavor (plus fiber you wouldn't get from white rice) fast, opt for a packet of precooked.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
