Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • One 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 5 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  1. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil. Cook the potatoes over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until brown and tender, about 15 minutes. Turn the flame down if they begin to blacken. Add the shallot, black beans, salt, cumin, and chili powder. Sauté 3 minutes more, until the shallot is soft. Carefully fold in the spinach and cook until wilted. Drizzle with the lime juice.
  2. Serve the hash warm with a fried egg on top.
