Zucchini Hash Browns Changed My Life

Hash browns, extra crispy, are delicious.  I can give up bacon without an issue, but passing on hash browns as a part of a “healthy” lifestyle is heartbreaking.  Which is why zucchini hash browns changed my life.

As a part of eating healthier, I have been cooking more at home.  So, I thought that I had experimented with zucchini to its full extent.  I sauteed it, I sliced it and baked it, I even turned it into noodles – I thought that was where the party ended.  I. WAS. WRONG.

With very little effort, you can have crispy, delicious hash browns made from shredded zucchini.  I will repeat, hash browns made with zucchini – that are delicious, and hash brown-y. This seriously makes me so happy (…and despite writing this at 12:24am, I am going to go make some now because I am an adult and I can).


  • Coarsely shred 1-2 zucchini (depending on their size) and combine with a pinch of salt in a medium size bowl.
