Servings: 8 servings


  • 1 approx. 15 oz can of white or other beans (sub with 1 1/2 cup cooked beans, if cooking beans from scratch)
  • 1 8-oz package tempeh, cut into 1-cm cubes
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut in 1/4-inch cubes
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed and minced
  • 1 tsp dry basil leaves, or 1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (or use any hot sauce you love, like Sriracha)
  • 2 level tbsp curry powder
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste


  • In a large saucepan or wok, add two tablespoons of water. Add the onions and garlic with a pinch of salt and ground black pepper and saute, over medium-high heat, until the onions are translucent.
  • Add the sweet potatoes, cover, and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are cooked. Stir occasionally to ensure they are not sticking, and add more water if needed.
  • When the sweet potatoes are tender, add the cayenne, curry powder, basil, and stir to mix.
  • Add the quinoa, beans, and tempeh and stir well to mix. Warm through and serve. I like serving this with a drizzle of coconut-coriander chutney which adds a nice layer of flavor, but you can skip it. The hash is also delicious without it.
