Parmesan Cauliflower Hash Browns Recipe

When I first started eating well, it felt like the only advice I got was what to remove. While taking the crap out of my diet was good advice in many ways, sometimes I found it difficult and a little depressing to give up the foods I loved.Parmesan Cauliflower Hash Browns Recipe

Top of the list: hash browns. Golden, crispy, greasy hash browns. And you guys know how much I love hash browns! So, how does one maintain a healthy, well balanced lifestyle while simultaneously stuffing their face with hash browns? Answer: they don’t. Or at least not by enjoying them in their original greasy state.

But a life without hash browns just doesn’t seem worth it, so instead of cutting them out completely and feeling deprived, I got crafty and adapted. I whipped up this alternative take on my old favorite that fit my new lifestyle. Meet my new breakfast favorite: Parmesan Cauliflower Hash Browns — an indulgent AND healthy addition to your breakfast.

Parmesan Cauliflower Hash Browns Recipe

  • Author: Tina


Makes 4 Hashbrowns


  • 2 cups riced cauliflower
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ cup Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper


1. Combine cauliflower, Parmesan, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Then fold in egg until combined.
2. Place a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat. (I usually add a little butter or ghee too!)
3. Scoop a golf ball size portion of the cauliflower mixture and place in the frying pan. Then squash the ball out into a traditional hash brown shape.
4. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm alongside your favorite breakfast. (I enjoy them best dipped in hot sauce!)

  1. This looks amazing. Reminds me of the mashed cauliflower recipe on the Zone diet but even better. Definitely getting added to my holiday meal plan.
