Cauliflower Hash Browns

This is a delicious low carb alternative to potatoes using the wonderful cauliflower yet again!  I cooked these for breakfast and the only complaint that I got was that there was not enough.  I added cheese to my hash browns but you could alway omit this to keep it Vegan or Dairy Free.   I used Cheddar Cheese, but you could use mozzarella or Parmesan too. 

This would be a great way to use any left over cauliflower rice that you may have too!  You could add other spices, herbs or chopped peppers too!  Go crazy and experiment with this!


2 cups cauliflower, grated

1/2 onion finely chopped

3/4 cup grated Cheddar Cheese (or mozzarella or Parmesan)

1 tspn garlic powder

salt and white pepper

3 tblspns olive oil


  • Cook the grated cauliflower in the microwave for about 3 minutes until tender and there is no water in it (or if you have some leftover cooked cauliflower rice you can omit this bit).
  • Add the onion, cheese and garlic powder and stir well.  Season to taste.
  • Using your hands, form little patties.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.
  • Place the patties in the pan and gently press down with a spatula to flatten.
  • Cook on each side until golden.
  • Eat and enjoy!

  1. Do you think they’ll keep their shape while frying, without the cheese. Would an egg or some other binder (chickpea flour ) be necessary

  2. Have just tried these, the taste is very good!! I have trouble keeping the shape when they are in the pan so I just pan fry all the cauliflower mixture till they look slightly golden and place them on a plate, then I press and shape them into a big block of harsh brown. They did stick together a little when they cool down. I will definitely try it again (the big block method) and place a fried egg on top to make it a meal. Thanks for the recipe! :-)
