Cajun seasoning: this seasoning makes the Potato Hash really over the top amazing.
If you look at my step by step pictures you won’t believe how easy this, yet the taste is so yummy.
What you need for this Potato Hash recipe
Potatoes: I like to use starchy potatoes like russet for this potato hash, because these I think make seriously the most amazing texture.
Bell pepper, garlic, and onions add a great color and much flavor, which is always delicious.
Oil: You can use olive, canola or sunflower oil. This recipe will turn out amazing with any oil. Also great cooked in Garlic Butter.
Cajun seasoning: this is seriously such a great seasoning, because it has so much flavor. After adding it, I find this really turned out just amazing. I couldn’t resist polishing off my plate in seconds, yum.
Vegan sausage: tastes just great and adds so much heartiness and meatiness, and a comforting flavor. This really takes the Potato Hash over the top.
How to make Potato Hash
Clean and peel potatoes, then cut them into quarters. Now you will need a pot with salty water. Bring to a boil and cook the cubes for around 5 minutes. If you use a steamer basket, it will take about 6 minutes.
Next, heat oil in a frying pan. When hot, add the diced onions, bell pepper, garlic, and sausage. Cook for 3 minutes.
Add potatoes, Cajun seasoning and fry everything for 8 minutes more. Finally add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste and serve in bowls or on plates.
Note that I quarter my potatoes. If you cut them differently, the cooking time will be slightly longer or shorter.
Tips and Storage
I think everything is better with Ranch and this Potato Hash is no exception. So try out my tasty and delicious Ranch Dip.
If you plan on using sweet potatoes instead of potatoes, that is certainly possible, but the result will be different. The texture of sweet potatoes is naturally softer than potatoes.
Also delicious with fresh avocados on top. Instead of sausage, vegan bacon bites or ground beef is also delicious.
I wouldn’t recommend freezing, but the Potato Hash will stay fresh in fridge for around 4 days.
