A favorite for Sunday brunch, this dish reheats well and is a good choice for a do-ahead weekday breakfast.
2 sprigs rosemary
1 bunch green onions
½ pound Brussels sprouts
2 portabella mushrooms
2 cloves garlic
2 inches fresh ginger
1 sweet potato
Separate eggs, set aside. Stem rosemary, and chop. Chop green onions, Brussels sprouts and mushrooms. Mince or press garlic. Press ginger. Peel and dice sweet potato. Juice lemon.
5 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon turmeric
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add rosemary and turmeric, cook for a minute or two. Remove from heat and set aside.
To prepare the sauce, combine egg yolks with ¼ cup of water and lemon juice in the top part of the double boiler or a small bowl that will fit over the saucepan of simmering water. Whisk mixture for several minutes, until it begins to thicken. Slowly add butter mixture and continue to whisk until well mixed and sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 teaspoons pepper
½ teaspoon salt
Sauté onions, garlic and ginger in a skillet over medium heat. While onions are cooking, heat 2 inches water in a small saucepan or double boiler until simmering.
When onions are soft, add sweet potatoes and ¼ cup water. Cover and cook a further 8–10 minutes, stirring frequently. When sweet potatoes are soft, add Brussels sprouts and portabella and cook 4–5 minutes longer, stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper.
Prepare eggs as desired; if scrambling, mix in separated whites to avoid waste.
Divide hash among plates; serve each with an egg and sauce.
Preparation: 30 minutes
