Cauliflower Hash Browns

 The traditional way to prepare hash browns is potato. Potatoes are a staple food that most people have access to, and they make a great hash brown. However, today, we are focusing on cauliflower as the main ingredient of our recipe. Cauliflower is lower in carbs than potatoes which can help those trying to eat healthier or watch their dieting more closely. Here is how to make cauliflower hash browns!

Cauliflower Hash Browns


2 pounds of russet potatoes  

1 head of cauliflower (florets only)  

2 tbsp. olive oil (plus more for frying)  Salt and pepper  

2 tsp. chili powder


1. Chop your cauliflower into pieces and place in a bowl with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 teaspoons of garlic salt. Stir to combine ingredients. Set aside on countertop for 1 hour or until cauliflower is soft and the batter becomes creamy, stirring occasionally. Drain excess liquid from batter and use a fork to break up any large chunks; seasoning with additional salt, garlic powder, or herbs to taste if desired. Season mixture with additional seasonings as desired (garlic powder, chili spices, cumin).

2. Heat a frying pan (large enough to hold the cauliflower hash browns) over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil and place cauliflower mixture into the frying pan. Press down with a spatula to make the hash browns flat; leaving space around them so they are easier to flip. Cook for about 10-12 minutes or until well-browned on the bottom side.

3. Flip the hash browns by placing a spatula under one end of the cauliflower mixture and turning it upside down onto another part of the frying pan that has not been cooked yet; pressing it down once again in its new position. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom side. Remove from heat and serve warm.
