Sweet Potato and Onion Hash


  • 2 Cups white sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into medium dice
  • 1 Cup thinly sliced onion (about half an onion)
  • ½ Cup julienned carrots (about 1 ½ carrots)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable or olive oil 
  • 1 Cup dashi or vegetable broth 
  • 1 Cup chopped scallions, both white and green parts
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce, plus more if needed



  1. In a large saute pan, stir-fry sweet potatoes, onion, and carrots over medium-high heat with salt in oil for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add dashi broth, cover, and lower heat to simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. 
  3. Turn off heat; add scallions and soy sauce to taste


Note: For a simpler version of this dish, steam purple, white, or orange sweet potatoes until soft. Toss with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, chopped scallions, and a dash of salt.
