Who knew a simple veggie dish could taste this flavorful? Cumin, cinnamon, and red pepper add warmth to this Peruvian-inspired sweet potato hash. For an added serving of protein, top it with a fried egg. If you're cooking for a sensitive palate, use less red pepper for a mild flavor that everybody can enjoy.
