Root Down & Hash Brown

Day 18 of the #plantfueledyoga challenge brings the root down recipe

For the past few days, Sarah and I have been focused on a plant-based environmental connection for our 21 day challenge. Plants help nourish our bodies in a cruelty free way, plus have a significantly lower carbon footprint. So, let’s use our knowledge for a wonderfully nutrient dense, cruelty free recipe.

Root Down & Hash Brown

Ingredients

1 large sweet potato
1/2 onion, minced
2 gloves garlic
2 tblsp olive oil
1 package drained tofu
2-3 cups of kale

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Mince the garlic and onion and add.

Peel the sweet potato, then dice into cubes and put into a bowl with a few tablespoons of water – microwave on high for 3 minutes. Once a bit soft, add to saute. Saute for about 8-10 minutes.

Cube tofu and make sure all excess liquid is drained. Add to the saute.

Cook until tofu is browned. Add a splash of pepper (salt if you’d like), and serve with whole grain toast or a fruit cup!

It all began 15 years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 15 years later, back together. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing new wines & touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to traveling to new destinations, upgrading the house, to parking it with the puppies, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
