Wash produce before use


Prep the ingredients

  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into ¼-inch pieces.
  • Peel the apple if desired; core and cut into ¼-inch pieces.
  • Cut a small corner from the protein packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.


Cook the hash

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. [If cooking for 4 people, use 2 large frying pans; divide the ingredients between the pans and cook as directed.] Add the sweet potato, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add your protein, season with salt, pepper, and the merguez spice blend, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. 

Stir in the apple and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Working in batches if needed, stir in the kale and cook until just wilted and the meat is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the hash to individual bowls, drizzle with the chimichurri, and serve.

Ingredient IQ

Chimichurri is a stunning herb-flecked sauce that hails from Argentina and Uruguay, where it’s traditionally used as an accompaniment to grilled meats. While vinegar, parsley, garlic, and olive oil are mainstay components, recipes vary widely. We’ve added fresh cilantro and nutty cumin to ours for extra deliciousness.
