Hash browns are simply crispy fried potatoes that are then fried in oil. These recipes show that you don’t have to visit a fast food restaurant, to eat this popular breakfas food. Who would want to support a company that kills 350,000 beautiful cows each year, just to make burgers? Not just American, they are also popular in Switzerland (rosti) and in Jewish cuisine (latkes).
These hash browns (So Vegan) are made with grated carrot and cauliflower (use chickpea flour for gluten-free) along with palm-oil-free vegan butter for a richer version. Serve with vegan mayo and fresh herbs. You can make these in advance, and store on baking paper in an airtight-container in the fridge or freezer, ready to cook at a moment’s notice.
Vegan Cheesy Hash Browns (So Vegan) takes things up a notch, with vegan cheddar cheese and flax seeds, to use instead of eggs, to bind everything together.
Baked Vegan Hash Browns (Lazy Cat Kitchen) use peeled Maris Piper potatoes along with salt, shallot, and black pepper. Just a little oil spray for these, to use instead of fried.
