Sweet Potato, Corn and Edamame Hash

We served this dish at the Redlands Conservancy Feasting on the Farn event on Sunday and people really seemed to enjoy it. Since the event, I have had several requests for the recipe, so here it is ! For consistency in appearance and taste, rough chop all ingredients into similar sizes and shapes.

1 sweet onion, diced- rough chop (we used maui onions, but yellow onion will work)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 (or 4 small) large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4 in cubes (similar to size of a kernel of corn)
1 8oz package of diced smoked ham
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 12 oz package uncooked frozen shelled edamame
1 12 oz package frozen whole kernel corn
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Saute ham and onion in hot oil in a skillet over medium heat-high heat. (I prefer to use a large cast iron skillet but a standard non-stick skillet will work). Sautee for approx 6-8 minutes or until onion is tender and ham is lightly browned. Stir in sweet potatoes, and saute for additional 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute max. Stir in edamame and remaining three ingredients. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally 10-12 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender. Add salt and pepper.

Note: To serve as a brunch item, serve over fresh bed of arugula and top with poached eggs.

  1. Hi Lee, this sounds delicious! I'll have to try it with poached eggs. I love brunch dishes full of vegetables. :)
