I bet you thought you would never find low carb hash browns. Think again. These Fried Radish and Cauliflower Hash Browns with Bacon will curb your breakfast potato cravings.
Missing potatoes on your low carb diet? these Fried Radish and Cauliflower Hash Browns with Bacon can fill the void
If you have been following my low carb and gluten free meal plans, then you probably saw this recipe way back in Week 7. Hopefully you have enjoyed it several times since then. Ever since I was a small child, potatoes have always been my favorite food.
Mashed, fried, hash browns, french fries, tater tots ... you name it, I love it. When I first started a low carb lifestyle, potatoes were the very thing I missed the most. I instantly knew that I needed to find a satisfying solution to my potato love affair dilemma. I kept hearing that cauliflower was a great substitution. I was not a fan of cauliflower. I hated the smell of it as it cooked, I hated the mushy texture. I could only eat it raw if it was drenched beyond recognition in ranch dressing ... yes, I am super fancy, thank you for asking!
Why I now appreciate keto cauliflower recipes
But somewhere along the way, my love of potatoes morphed into a deep love of cauliflower - the stinky cruciferous vegetable I once loathed. As I got creative in the kitchen, I realized just how many amazing things you could substitute it for.
Cauliflower really can do anything, and in this recipe, it's acting as hash browns. I am a firm believer that even the pickiest of eaters is just one amazing recipe away from being converted into a cauliflower lover. Perhaps this will be that recipe!

Fried Radish and Cauliflower Hash Browns with Bacon - Paleo, Low Carb
- Yield: 4 Servings 1x
- 1 pound radishes, shredded
- 3 cups riced cauliflower

- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 6 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
- In a large mixing bowl, combine shredded radishes, riced cauliflower, sea salt, black pepper, and paprika. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-hight heat. Once the oil is hot, spread the hash in an even and thin layer across the whole skillet. (If you do not have a large enough skillet, you may need to do this in two batches in order to get them crispy).

- Fry until hash is cooked through and crispy - about 20-30 minutes. Stir and flip as needed.
- Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired.

This recipe was so good! I was a little worried when the cauliflower started to turn brown but it was amazing! It smelled tasty even while I was cooking. I didn’t include paprika or make eggs to go with it, I’m allergic to eggs. I only added bacon as a side but I feel it wasn’t necessary for this dish. Thank you so much for this recipe, I’m adding it to my mental file 🙂
I have tried frying regular radishes and to me they still have that sharp taste that I don't care for. Have you ever tried substituting with a Daikon radish? They have a much more mild flavor. I am thinking I will try this recipe with that substitute and add onions and well. What are hash browns with no onions? 😉 Thanks for so many amndswesome recipes amndswesome ideas!!! 🙂
Love your Blog, signing up for newsletter. Been low carb for a month.
I've fallen in love with cauliflower, too. It's my go to snack in the afternoon. I use some low carb salad dressing and dip a corner of the floret in to give it a bit of a zingy taste. I've tried several of your recipes and they have been just fabulous (fav is slow cooker creamy mexican chicken). Thanks for all your hard work at helping us low carbers!
Have you tried frying this in bacon grease?

I would fry my own mom in bacon grease. 🙂 Okay, maybe not really, but yes, that would be delicious.

I haven't tried radishes in a hash, yet. This looks darn right incredible. Must try!
