  • 1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets (to yield 2 cups shredded, packed)
  • 2 eggs (can sub with flax eggs)
  • 1/3 cup green onions, sliced, plus more for garnish (approx. 2 onions)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, for greasing pan


  1. Grate the cauliflower head on a cheese grater or use food processor to create cauliflower "rice."

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded cauliflower with eggs, green onion, sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir to mix well.

  3. Heat 1/2 teaspoon olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet or griddle.

  4. Add 1/4 cup of the cauliflower mixture to the pan and gently press down with a spatula to flatten to be approx. 3 inches wide, working to keep the hash brown together as much as possible.

  5. Cook for about 2-3 minutes until the edges start to turn golden brown, and the hash brown begins to stick together when nudged.
  6. Carefully flip over and cook an additional 2-3 minutes to let the edges brown and the cauliflower cook through. Use the spatula to form back into a circular shape, as needed. Repeat with remaining mix. Note: there will be residual liquid left at the bottom of the mixing bowl - that is normal and can be discarded.

  7. Garnish with chopped green onion, if desired, and serve hot.
