How to Make Cauliflower Hash Browns
Chop your cauliflower head into florets and then place them into a food processor.
Pulse the processor until the cauliflower looks like grains of rice.
Place the riced cauliflower into a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much excess water as possible. Set it aside.
Chop your onion into small pieces and place them in a skillet. Saute with the olive oil over medium heat until the onions are translucent.
Add your salt to the pan for seasoning.
Add in the priced cauliflower and stir together until the mixture looks golden in color and soft. Then remove the pan from the heat.
In a medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs together with the parmesan cheese, almond flour, chopped parsley, and garlic powder.
Combine the cauliflower with the egg mixture.
Return your skillet to the stove and add in some olive oil.
Spoon some of the hash browns mixtures into the skillet and press it out to give it a flat round shape.
Cook over low heat on both sides until warmed through.
Serve warm with some tomato or marinara sauce.
- Cauliflower can be a pretty watery vegetable which is why we try to squeeze out the moisture and cook out moisture before turning it into hashbrowns. If your mixture ends up slightly watery, add one tablespoon of coconut flour to absorb the water excess, and problem solved!
- You can use frozen riced cauliflower instead of fresh. To do this, simply cook the cauliflower in the microwave until it’s soft and then prepare it in the same manner as fresh (squeezing out moisture, etc).
- To reheat your leftovers, simply place the hashbrowns on a baking sheet and cook in the oven at 350 degrees F until warmed through. Alternatively, you can cook them in a skillet to et them warm and crispy.
