In a sauce pot, heat the oil. Add the onions, green onions, celery, bell peppers, jalapenos, shallots, and garlic over high heat. Add the basil, thyme, oregano, and bay leaves. Saute for 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, stock, salt, cayenne, and black pepper and bring to a boil. Cook over high heat for 2 minutes, reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Stir in the butter and remove from the heat. To assemble, spoon a small amount of the sauce in the center of the plate. Place 3/4 cup of the hash on the sauce. Top with the poached egg and garnish with shaved green onions.
