Butternut Hash Browns

Who doesn't love hash browns? Well they aren't limited to potatoes. This recipe is a light version from the cookbook "Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200" using butternut squash. Not a vegetable that I use very often. It can be hard to cut. I skinned it with a sharp chefs knife and then grated it with a box grater. You could definitely use olive oil if you wanted to, but I thought it was pretty tasty with just the cooking spray. This recipe is for one serving.

Butternut Hash Browns

1 cup grated butternut squash
2 T chopped onion
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
dash pepper
dash salt
cooking spray

Spread squash on a paper towel and press another piece on top. Squeeze out liquid. Repeat until water is removed. Mix shreds and remaining ingredients to a medium bowl.

Spray pan with cooking spray and bring to medium-high heat. Add mixture and spray on top. Cook 2 minutes. Flip and cook 2 minutes more.

  1. They actually peel very easily with a potato peeler. Though I usually bake them first and they just fall out of the skin.
