Easy, oil-free crispy hash browns are made at home. You will only need one ingredient: good potatoes. This recipe is lighter and healthier than most traditional recipes for hash browns. You’ll see that you don’t need a single drop of oil to create that irresistible crisp.


  • 4 medium sized peeled organic potatoes, this is about 650 grams (peeled)
  • optional :¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • optional : ¼ teaspoon onion powder


  1. You can peel the potatoes first, which is what I do for this recipe.
  2. If you don’t peel your potatoes, scrub the potatoes clean first and rinse them.
  3. Preheat your griddle or oven.
  4. Take out your food processor or grater. Grate the potatoes with the biggest grate disc or on a large-holed cheese grater.
  5. In a sieve, rinse the grated potato well under running water. Drain and shake out any excess water.
  6. If you flavor the grated potatoes, transfer the grated potatoes to a bowl and toss it with garlic powder, onion powder and any other spices/herbs you like.
  7. Spread the potatoes over the griddle in an even (not too thin) layer. Let the potatoes roast for 20 minutes in the griddle. After that start checking every 5 minutes to see if your hash browns are ready (crispy and golden brown). Total grilling time is about 20-30 minutes.
  8. When done, serve the hash browns warm with some stir-fried vegetables or fresh greens.
