Smoky Sweet Potato and Corn Hash - The Lemon BowlLet’s be real: Winter vegetables need a little coaxing before they turn into something spectacular. You know what I’m talking about: beets, cauliflower, butternut squash…they all need a little bit of love before they turn into something delicious, satisfying and nourishing.

Sweet potatoes, yellow corn and red onion turn tender and sweet as they cook. For a bit of a kick, scallions, cayenne and smoked paprika are thrown into the mix. If you’re entertaining guests this holiday season, hash is naturally gluten and dairy free – ideal for accommodating various food allergies. Simple, fast and flavor-packed, this dish is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

As always, this hash is just a method that would work well with anything you have on hand from red peppers to yukon golds. Get creative and make it your own.
