This breakfast hash with pinto beans, potatoes, spinach, and veggies is a nutritious option and hearty meal to start your day. The pinto beans are a good source of protein, while the potatoes and spinach provide complex carbohydrates and fiber. The veggies add vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This dish is also easy to make ahead of time and can be reheated when needed. So if you’re looking for a nutritious and filling breakfast that will keep you going all morning, this breakfast hash is a great option.
My favorite thing about this recipe is that you can use any veggies in your fridge and pair it with any plant-based protein, to keep you fuller for longer. I used pinto beans in this hash, but any legume could work.
