This Vegetable Hash is a gorgeous, healthy side dish for dinner. It also makes a wonderful light lunch or brunch when served with a fried egg on top!
I just love love love a sunny side up fried egg with a perfectly runny yolk. Fried eggs are my favorite breakfast by far and I love the mornings when I have time to make myself eggs for breakfast.
I love topping foods with a fried egg later on in the day too. Luckily, a LOT of things can be topped with a fried egg, as you can see here.
This gorgeous colorful and healthy vegetable hash is perfect with a fried egg on top. The little bites of turnip and carrot flavored with garlic, onion, and oregano are perfect under a runny yellow yolk. It is like a little party of flavors in my mouth with every bite.
You can tell I am in love with this dish.
Luckily it’s really easy to make, so I can see it becoming a regular in our house. It’s also easy to make substitutions to this vegetable hash if you want to – just add some diced potatoes or parsnips instead of some of the turnips or carrots. It will still taste amazing. Just make sure to dice everything equally small so the cooking time doesn’t get extended.
Other ideas for substitutions, or ways to spruce up the dish: Add some bacon or browned crumbled sausage. There is nothing that bacon or sausage cannot improve.
But if you want to keep it vegan, then you can skip the fried egg. But then we won’t be friends. :p
Vegetable Hash with Fried Egg
- 4 medium carrots
- 4 medium turnips
- 1 yellow onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Salt & pepper , to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each)
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons fresh herbs (parsley, basil, cilantro) or sprouts for garnish
- Eggs for frying (see notes)
- Peel and clean the carrots. Clean the turnips (no need to peel them). Dice the carrots and turnips into small, even pieces no more than 1/2 inch each. You will have about 4-5 cups of each vegetable.
- Dice the yellow onion into small pieces. Mince the garlic cloves.
- In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add all the chopped vegetables, onion, and garlic. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano and stir well. Cook over medium-high heat for about 20 minutes, stirring frequently. If you notice the vegetables starting to burn or stick to the pan, lower the heat, add another tablespoon of vegetable oil and stir.
- As the vegetables are almost done, fry the eggs in a separate skillet. (Sunny side up is my favorite for this dish!) Serve the vegetable hash warm with a fried egg on top.
