recipe adapted from a house in the hills
I love meals like this. It is such a versatile dish that can be taken in so many delicious directions. I was running short on time…and groceries… so this time I didn’t add a ton to this hash. Regardless of the lack of toppings my guests devoured it.
. 1 bunch asparagus
. 4 medium russet potatoes
. 5 green onions, chopped
. 1 large clove of garlic, minced
. salt and pepper to taste
. coconut or safflower oil for frying
. Feta for topping
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. While you are waiting for the water to boil, snap off the bottoms of your asparagus spears ( discard the bottoms ) and cut the remaining asparagus into 1 inch pieces. Chop the green onions. Now that the water has come to a boil add the potatoes and cook for about 10-15 minutes or until just tender. Add the asparagus to the pot of potatoes and let boil for the last two minutes. Once the potatos and asparagus have cooked, drain them and give them a quick rinse with cold water. Set aside to cool. Chop the potatoes into bite sized pieces. In a large frying pan saute the green onions and garlic with about 1 tbsp of oil over medium-low heat. Turn heat to med and add a little more oil. Now add the potato, asparagus and a good pinch of salt and some fresh pepper. Saute, turning every 4 minutes making sure the bottoms are browning ( not burning ) If the potatoes are sticking to the pan you can add a little more oil. Once the hash is looking good and golden remove from heat and serve! Top with a generous drizzle of chimichurri and a crumbling of Feta. Enjoy.
. 1/2 cup parsley
. 3/4 cup cilantro
. 1 1/2 cloves of garlic
. 2 1/2 tbsp shallots
. 2-4 slices of pickled jalapano, add more or less depending on how much heat you like or you can skip the jalapano if you aren’t wanting the extra kick.
. 1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
. 3/4 cups olive oil
. 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
. 3/8 tsp salt
To make: add all of the above to your food processor and pulse. Alternately, if you do not have a food processor you can finely chop everything and then mix together in a bowl.
