Keto Hash Browns with Grated Radishes ?

i.e. ‘Potatoes’ ?

If you’ve already met our slow-roasted keto radishes, then you know this is a dish you ought to try. And if you thought radishes made killer ‘potatoes’ there, you won’t believe the magic that goes on here. As in they’re the most potato-like version we’ve yet to encounter.

And perhaps one of the most lovable things about radishes is their carb count. We’re talking 1.8g net carbs per 100g serving…! That equates roughly to 0.1g net carbs per medium 1-inch radish. Nuts right?

Can Radishes Impersonate Potatoes?

Raw radishes are anything but potato-y: spicy, bitter, and totally juicy. But when cooked, something magical happens, and the result is actually rather extraordinary. Fact is, this keto hash browns are pretty phenomenal.

Still, keep in mind that radishes are still radishes and a slight trace will linger. But after being well cooked, they pretty much become potatoes. Think a silky smooth texture and a delicious taste.

So we cannot recommend enough that you give these keto hash browns a shot. Best case scenario you will be one of the lucky peeps to whom radishes totally taste like potatoes. And worst case? You’ll never whip them up again.

But we love them. Repeat, absolutely looove them!

The Trick ?

Be patient and cook them long enough that they’re fully golden and silky smooth in texture. Radishes have a lot more water weight than potatoes, so they need a little longer.

We also love to cook them in olive oil, as they soak up the flavor quite beautifully. They don’t, however, stick to each other like potatoes. So you’ll have to add an egg to get them to stick together (though they’ll still be a tad fragile). If you wan’t them to hold together even better, try a pinch of xanthan gum.

Oh, and we love to cook the ‘hash brown batter’ in our waffle maker. But you can always make patties in your skillet or pan.

1. Shred and strain the radishes

INSTRUCTIONS

FOR THE KETO HASH BROWNS:

  1. Shred radishes and squeeze out the extra moisture using cheesecloth, a kitchen towel or simply your hands. 
  2. Heat up olive oil in a skillet or pan over medium heat. Add radishes and sauté, stirring often, until fully golden and silky smooth. Depending on the amount you’re cooking, this can take anywhere from 15-40 minutes.  
  3. Transfer cooked radishes into a bowl and allow to cool slightly (as to not scramble the eggs). Add in egg and mix thoroughly. 
  4. Heat up waffle maker, if using. Grease well and add hash brown batter, cooking until fully browned (8-12) minutes. 
  5. Alternatively, heat up a touch of olive oil to the skillet or pan over medium/low heat. Spoon in hash brown batter and form into patties. Cook until golden and carefully flip over, 3-5 minutes on each side. 
  6. Serve right away with our ‘keto sauce’ (optional). 

FOR OUR KETO SAUCE (OPTIONAL, BUT HIGHLY SUGGESTED!):

  1. Mix all ingredients together and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. 

RECIPE NOTES

*We generally find that 1 egg per 1 kg (2 pounds) is enough for the hash browns to stick. But do a test drive with one, and if needed, add a little extra egg.

Alternatively, if you want a much firmer hash brown, feel free to add a pinch of xanthan gum
