Cauli hash browns

There are so many ways to eat these – with your eggs for breakfast, stacked with avocado, smoked salmon, roast tomatoes or bacon, made into ham and cheese toasties, or eaten with a generous scoop of savoury mince. They are really delicious and a great carb free alternative to bread or potatoes.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Grate the cauliflower florets into a cauliflower ‘snow’. Microwave uncovered for 5 to 8 minutes until steaming and fluffy. Alternatively, steam above a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes, until fluffy and cooked through.

Add the grated cheese, egg and salt and pepper and stir together until well combined. Feel free to add some herbs, garlic and chilli at this stage if you would like to add more flavour.

Scoop a hash brown sized portion (about 2 tablespoons) onto the lined tray, flattening and shaping into either a square or circle (depending on what you prefer). Repeat until all the mix is gone, leaving a space between each. Bake for 15 minutes until golden.
