This is a quick and easy paleo breakfast hash casserole for those mornings when you don’t have much time to cook! The first rule for a pleasant and uneventful weekday breakfast is to have some food ready in advance! Some people will spend their Sunday “batch cooking” large quantities of food that they can take out of the fridge during the week and reheat as needed. The meal is already prepared and you only have to warm it up. That is one way to do it.
Another option is to prepare large quantities of “fresh ingredients” and quickly put them together to cook a fresh meal in a record time. I prefer this second option.
A typical food prep of ingredients would look like this for me:
- butternut squash, shredded (I have a neat tutorial on how to cut and peel butternut squash!) or a couple of big sweet potatoes, shredded as well
- chopped kale, collard greens, or chard
- chopped red cabbage
- cauliflower, cut into smaller pieces
- broccoli, cut into smaller pieces
- chopped onions
- diced zucchini and yellow squash
- chopped fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro, chives)
- chopped green onions
I keep all these vegetables ready in big resealable plastic bags in the bottom drawer of my refrigerator. They will stay fresh up to 4-5 days without any problem.
During the week, I tap into this reserve of fresh vegetables and herbs to prepare my meals more quickly and more efficiently. I created this AIP breakfast hash casserole one morning by mixing random vegetables together, and I really liked the way it turned out! I love the vibrant colors and it feels like a burst of sunshine and spring green on my plate.
With only 3 ingredients (that you will have prepared in advance), this recipe is really quick, easy, and un-involved
