Swap out your potatoes for healthy cauliflower in these crispy, chive-studded hash browns.
Miss the crisp texture of carb-heavy potato hash browns? Try this lighter, cauliflower version instead. You can cook these on-the-go breakfast patties into golden crisps and pair them with your favorite pancakes or enjoy them solo. Bonus: you can even freeze leftovers to make meal prep a cinch!
Traditional hash browns can’t hold a candle to this nutritious staple. Cauliflower helps fight inflammation and protects against cancer, while your digestive system gets a healthy boost of fiber. To boost the anti-inflammatory benefits and for a hint of spice, try adding ½ teaspoon of turmeric and pepper!

Start by mixing riced cauliflower and salt in a bowl, and let it sit for 20 minutes. This will help release excess moisture and prevent your hashbrowns from getting soggy. Use a clean kitchen towel to wring out the cauliflower, then combine with eggs, almond flour, and seasonings. We used fresh chives for a grassy onion flavor, but you can also add some chopped basil or dill for even more zest.
Scoop the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and shape them into rectangular patties. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve your cauliflower hash browns hot alongside Paleo ketchup for dipping.
