Recently, I got an air-fryer, and I’m slowly making some of the reader’s favorite recipes in it. My Gluten-Free Vegan Cauliflower Hash Browns have been a readers’ favorite. I decided to make them in my air-fryer and they were a huge hit. 

I’m crazy about cooking cauliflower. I have so many delicious cauliflower recipes for you to try, like my Cauliflower Nuggets, Jamaican Jerk Cauliflower, and Vegan Cauliflower Casserole.

Air Fryer Cauliflower Hash Browns

These air fryer hash browns are way more flavorful than storebought versions, and they are not loaded with extra ingredients that you can’t even pronounce. Cauliflower hash browns are so easy to make in the air fryer, but if you don’t have an air fryer then you can bake them in the oven. 

They are healthy for you, since cauliflower is loaded with antioxidants, high in fiber, may aid in weight loss, and high in choline, which is an essential nutrient that many people are deficient in. (1, 2, 3, 4)

How Do You Make Cauliflower Hash Browns In An Air Fryer?

  1. Break the cauliflower into florets, place florets into a colander, and rinse under cold running water. Drain florets and loosely pat them with a clean cloth or paper towel to remove excess water.
  2. Place cauliflower in a food processor with the onion, and process until crumbly. You can also use a box grater to grate the cauliflower.
  3. Scoop cauliflower mixture into a bowl, and add chickpea flour, arrowroot, nutritional yeast flakes, paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Mix the mixture together as you would do with a batter.
  4. Divide mixture into 6-8 equal portions. Shape mixture into flat rectangular disks with about 1/2 inch thickness.
  5. Place 3-4 at a time in your air fryer basket. Cook at 375 F° for 20-25 minutes, turning halfway. The time it takes to cook your hash browns depends on your air fryer. Mine took 25 minutes.

Serve hash browns for breakfast or brunch. It is delicious served with my Easy Scrambled Tofu Recipe.
