Root Vegetable Hash & Poached Egg
A simple hash made from root vegetables, brings wonderful color and flavor to your plate in the morning. Warm, crispy flavors of roasted root vegetables pair beautifully with eggs, but would make a great side dish to any meal.

- Root vegetables will be finished when they are crispy around the edges.
- Heat 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
- Crack egg into skillet and cook for 30 seconds.
- Pour 1/4 cup water into the frying pan and cover with lid.
- Steam the egg until it is fully cooked (the yolk of the egg should have a hint of pink on the top, and none of the white should be translucent).

Make sure to thoroughly clean your root vegetables. Beets, especially, tend to hold a lot of dirt, so we will often scrub them clean before cooking. An additional treat with this breakfast would be to serve it with a few slices of bacon.
