Hash browns, I love them, but according to some, white potatoes are not Paleo. I have my own thoughts on that, but they are a night shade and those tend to cause me issues, some more than others. I wanted something, not a sweet potato to try instead. Spaghetti squash to the rescue, again! I will have to say I was very happy with my results. They were not at formed as the potato, but they worked and what I cooked them with made them taste awesome! I will try and tweek them out a little more to see if there is a way to help them keep their form better. Maybe using the dehydrated spaghetti squash would work better.
I made the “hash browns” to go with my eggs and bacon.
1 cup cooked spaghetti squash
2 shallots chopped
1/2 tsp garlic ( I love garlic)
salt and pepper to taste
bacon grease to cook with
melt bacon grease in a pan, add chopped shallots, cook until just tender. Add chopped spaghetti squash,garlic,salt and pepper. Cook until browned.
They do try and fall apart when you put them on the plate, but they are darn tasty!!
Trying to make them square.
Nice and brown
If you try these and are able to keep them from falling apart let me know how you did it. If you try them and just want to let me know what you thought, please do. All comments welcome, I love feed back!
If you ever find yourself short on time, like I do and have a few things on hand, like Cabbage,celery, carrots, mushrooms,water chestnuts and bamboo shoots. Or you can really cut down on time and make a great speed cheat so to speak. Pick up a bag or carton of shredded coleslaw mix at your local, Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe’s or what ever is closest to you. I have gotten the shredded tri color coleslaw mix from Albertsons before as well and it was fresh and worked well in my dish. A pound of grass fed ground beef, chicken breast, ground turkey breast or what ever meat your little heart desires. For seasoning I use Coconut Aminos, garlic and onion. I found a great little chopped garlic, shallots and celery mixture at Trader Joe’s I try and keep on hand for short cuts. And I also found one made by Birdseye in the freezer section The Marsala blend. I do try to keep it to the clean 15 and stay away from the dirty dozen with these items. But enough about that lets get cooking!
I break up and start to brown my 1 pound of grass fed beef, while it is still pink I add the Birdseye mushroom, onion and garlic mixture as well as a few big hand fulls of the cabbage mix. Mix it all together very well and put the lid on the pan and let it simmer on low to medium low until the beef browns and the veggies get tender crisp. Open and drain the water off the water chestnuts and bamboo shoots add about 1/2 can of each to the stir fry and add a few Tablespoons of coconut aminos. Mix all together well and let simmer for a few minutes to get bamboo shoots and water chestnut hot. Right before serving add fresh cracked black pepper and any other hot or spicy seasoning you’d like. Enjoy your quick fast and in a hurry stir fry and let me know if you tried it, how it was and if you made any additions to it please. I love feed back!
