Pancakes, scrambles, oatmeal, cereal. There are so many yummy ways to start one’s day. However, when time is on my side and I’m craving something a little more filling and with a lot more pizzazz, the below recipe always does the trick. The great thing about this recipe is that it is vegan, so it’s healthier than its meat and cheese-laden colleagues. “Gimme Lean Mornin’ Hash” is chock full of yummy ingredients--like Gimme Lean vegan sausage, hash browns, Daiya vegan cheese, and several veggies--that will keep your belly full and happy.
Gimme Lean Mornin’ Hash
Makes 2 servings
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 cups frozen shredded hash browns
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
¼ cup green pepper, chopped
¼ cup onion, chopped
¾ cup Gimme Lean sausage(approximately 1/3 of the package)
¼ cup Daiya cheddar and mozzarella style shreds, blended together
½ small tomato, diced
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
dash of pepper
Spread one tablespoon of canola oil in a large frying pan and add the shredded hash browns. Cook on medium heat. While that’s cooking, chop up your green pepper and onion, then add one teaspoon canola oil to a smaller frying pan and sauté them. Once the hash browns are nicely browned on the bottom, turn them over and cook the other side. After about ten minutes or so, shove some of them to the side to make room for your Gimme Lean. Add the last teaspoon of canola oil with the Gimme Lean, making sure to break the faux sausage up into small pieces with your spatula until it resembles crumbled sausage. Now, start mixing the whole pan, and go ahead and throw the onions and green peppers in there too. Looking good now, eh? Let that cook for a few minutes and then sprinkle on
your Daiya cheese. Put a cover on it to let the cheese melt. Meanwhile, chop up that tomato into nice little pieces. You’re almost done! Once the Daiya has melted, top with the diced tomato, a dash of pepper, and your nutritional yeast and you’re set.
