  • 2 Tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced 
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into small cubes (about 4 c)
  • 4-5 thyme sprigs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves roughly chopped
  • 1 package Upton’s Seitan Chorizo
  • Optional: a shake of Imperfect’s Seasoning for all of the Things


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and saute the onion until soft and just starting to wilt, about 3 minutes, stirring often.
  2. Add the sweet potato cubes, thyme, salt, and pepper to the onions and stir well to coat, then cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid and cook for 4-5 minutes. 
  3. Remove the lid and cook sweet potatoes, uncovered for another 3-4 minutes stirring often. 
  4. Break up the chorizo into the pan, add the kale leaves, and stir everything together.
  5. Cook another 2-3 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are fork-tender and starting to brown, kale cooked, and chorizo hot!
  6. Top off your breakfast hash some hot sauce, red chili pepper flakes, avocado, or a dollop of crema. 

Breakfast Hash Notes and Variations

Kale stems are edible! And just as tasty as the leaves. To use the stems in this recipe, par-cook them beforehand by blanching, steaming, or sautéing with oil over a medium flame. Then add them in when a recipe calls for the kale leaves.

    OMG! So delicious! I did cut down the salt to a half teaspoon but kept everything else. Wonderful. I am thinking that this would be wonderful as a taco filling! Oh, the possibilities! Great recipe!!!
