- Vegetarian recipes
- 29.2g (9.8g saturated)
- 13.1g (6.9g sugars)
- 40g unsalted butter
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 leek, sliced into 0.5cm rounds
- 2 garlic cloves, bashed and roughly chopped
- 2 fresh thyme sprigs or large pinch dried thyme
- 250g leftover mixed roasted veg, larger pieces diced or sliced
- 100g savoy cabbage, coarsely shredded
- 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 250g leftover mashed potato
- 4 large free-range eggs
- Vegetable oil or butter for frying
- Handful flatleaf parsley, roughly chopped, to serve
- Melt the 40g butter with the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the leek, garlic and thyme, then cook for 5-8 minutes until the leek begins to soften and take on a little colour. Add the roasted vegetables, cabbage and mustard, season well with salt and black pepper, then cook for a further 3-4 minutes until the cabbage begins to wilt.
- Add the mashed potato to the pan and mix well. Increase the heat to high and, using a wide spatula or potato masher, press down on the mixture to flatten it. Cook for 5-10 minutes on each side until crisp and golden (see tips).
- When the hash is almost ready, cook the eggs. Set another frying pan over a high heat and add a glug of vegetable oil or a knob of butter. Fry the eggs to your liking.
- Serve the hash straight from the pan alongside a fried egg and a sprinkling of parsley.
To turn the hash with ease, invert it onto a large plate, then slide it back into the pan as you would with a Spanish tortilla.
Next time, try any variety of mustard, cabbage and woody herbs in this dish.
