Turnip Bacon Hash

Recipe inspired by: AmyMyers.com

Course Breakfast
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 lb bacon, chopped (preferably organic or pastured, no added sugar)
  • 2 large turnips, grated
  • 1 small zucchini, grated
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat and cook chopped bacon until crispy. Strain the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving only a thin layer of grease in the pan.

  2. Place the shredded turnips and zucchini into a large colander or strainer and press down firmly with your hands, forcing out the excess liquid.

  3. Reduce pan heat to medium and add the chopped onion. Once the onion is translucent, add the grated turnips and zucchini to the pan. Stir the mixture.

  4. Allow the mixture to cook on medium, and stir occasionally to prevent burning. After about 10-15 minutes the turnips and zucchini will have browned and become crispy.

  5. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, add the cooked bacon back to the pan, and give a final stir before serving.

Tip of the Day

Yes, folks, there a difference between smoothies and juicing. Smoothies require a blender to mix ingredients into a drinkable paste. By incorporating the entire fruit and vegetable, smoothies provide fiber along with other critical nutrients. Fiber in particular is helpful for controlling your blood sugar, keeping you full for longer, and feeding the good bacteria in your gut. The downside to fiber is that it inhibits the quick absorption of nutrients.

Juicing extracts liquid from fruits and vegetables. Because juicing does not extract fiber, the liquid provides  a healthy and immediate blast of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for your cells.

Smoothies and juices have great nutritional benefits–each in their own way. Regardless of your choice, remember that a smoothie or a juice is healthiest when loaded with vegetables and contain about one serving of fruit.
