Cauliflower Hash Browns 4 Thumbs up!



The Cauliflower hasbrowns come from Lindasue's recipe collection.
The whole family loved them this morning - this was the first time I made them (and they were very easy to make.)

Cauliflower Hash Browns

I didn't tell anyone I was making them, so they were guessing what was in it. Ds #1 was eating them, until he realized it was made with cauliflower and onions, then he decided he didn't like them - but I think that is just psychological.

Thanks Lindasue!

Lyndy

Try sautéed radishes without telling. I love them for hash browns. I am not a fan of radishes and I love these.

Cut radish into 4 pieces and sauté in oil with a little butter until brown. yum...a fav of mine. The best part is .09 net carbs for 10 whole radishes.

LyndyLu, I'm glad to hear that you and your family liked them. My husband loves them too.

LCRedhead, do you peel the radishes first? I had no idea how low in carbs radishes were until I looked them up on the USDA site just now. If they are unpeeled, it's still under 1 carb per 10, but not quite as low as .09. I got the count for medium sized ones. Maybe yours were smaller.

Linda,
No I don't peel mine I just make sure they are washed really well. I got the count out of my pocket Atkins carb counter. which reads:

Radishes (10) 1.6 carb 0.7 fiber 0.9 net 0.3 protein 0.2 fat 9 cal.

OMG!, LCRedhead you are a genius. I just made these hash browns using chopped radishes, I can't believe how potatoee they taste. I sauteed some fresh onion first, sit it aside and then added equal parts of oil and butter to my frying pan then added the radishes some salt and plenty pepper,sauteed till light brown. I then added the cooked onins back in, along with some crumbled crisp bacon and tossed around a bit. This taste so close to real hash browns, who would of thunk it, something you think of as salad toppings could make potatoes. I just can't say enough about this discovery, a big THANK YOU

I made hash brown with a bunch of radishes (10). They were great. I had been making chili and had some remnants of the diced onionin the food processor, so I just took the ends off of the radishes, cut them in half and pulsed them with the onions until coursely chopped. Then I sauteed them in olive oil and garlic with some Jane's Crazy mixed up salt (an onion, garlic, salt, celery powder and pepper mix)

I cooked them on medium high heat in a no stick pan until browned and served with my homemade low carb ketchup.

These aremuch better than mock hash browns using zuchini and cauliflower IMO. Very mild.

I will have my version up on my recipe page this week.

Are you talking about regular red radishes? Do they taste different when cooked? Because to me they have a really sharp taste. I can't eat them raw.

Marbel,
Yes regular red radishes.

I hate radishes LOL unless you sauté them in oil and a little butter.........totally different taste. You will never know they are radishes.

I'll have to try radishes too!

Can you use the long white ones? Or maybe some rutebagas? Maybe one of these would make nice "french fries?"

I don't know if rutebagas are low carb or not.

I like taking zuchini to make "french fries" (sliced like french fries or coins and dippen in egg and parmesan.) Mmmm!

Lindasue, you are welcome and thanks for having a great website with recipe ideas and menu suggestions (so many to choose from and so little time.)

Try chopping them up and sauteing them in a little leftover bacon grease. It adds a wonderful flavor...As Emeril says: "Pork fat rules!"

This week I am going to try roasting them in the oven a little olive oil, salt and pepper and a touch of fresh rosemary. (My old small potato recipe) With a nice steak, salad and a couple tbl of country white gravy.

I'm looking for some Japaneese ones as suggested but no luck so far. Going to check with some of the local produce sellers. I have done the rutabag FF steak size 4 oz before roasting just under 8 carbs looking for lower count....but yum they are great and freeze nice.

I second this Tater Head! Just made a batch of these tonite and either my taste buds have changed dramatically since I started LC'ing, or these things taste JUST like hash brown potatoes. My Dad is going to love them! I used 10 radishes and pulsed them up in my small food processor with a little bit of onion. Sauted them in butter and added salt and pepper and they were fantastic.

Next I am going to make LC Breakfast burritos with them for DH to heat in the microwave for breakfast.

I have no idea how you came up with this idea LCReadhead, but I am so glad you did. And can't wait to hear about the roasted ones!

These sound GREAT!

If you let them sit long enough in the pan on high heat, do you think they would get a little crispy like hash browns?

I just can't picture them tasting good. LOL I am dying to hear how they are roasted!

Jennifer, yes I brown them up nice and also sometimes add onion and green pepper and a little bacon. Put what ever you normally would in homefries.

I just cooked the radish hashbrowns and all I can say is "WOW"!!!I love radishes but would never have tried this on my own. They lose the radish taste when cooked but are delicious. I sauteed about a Tbsp. of chopped onion in some butter, added a little garlic and then the shredded radishes. A little salt, pepper and a Tbsp. of bacon grease. It was so easy. I used my salad shooter to grate them right into the skillet.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
