Sweet Potato Hash Browns

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbs olive oil or butter
  • 1 scallion, chopped for topping
  • Optional pairings: eggs, tofu scramble, toast, bacon or tempeh bacon


  1. Remove the ends of the sweet potato, you may peel the skin if desired but it isn’t necessary.
  2. Use a box grater or food processor to shred the sweet potato into thin strings.
  3. Transfer the shredded sweet potato to a large mixing bowl and pat dry with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
  4. Hand mix in some salt, pepper, and garlic powder and shape the sweet potato into 4 hash browns.
  5. In a large skillet, heat the oil or butter on high heat.
  6. Once hot, add the hash browns and use the spatula to flatten the cakes. If there are some stray strands of sweet potato, don’t worry just push them back into the hash brown with the spatula.
  7. Reduce heat to medium high and cook the hash browns undisturbed for 3-4 minutes.
  8. When you’re ready to flip, carefully move your spatula underneath and around all edges of the hash brown.
