Rockin' Radish Browns

Keto-licious brunch totals only 7g Net Carbs! Radish
Browns compliment fried eggs, bacon, turkey sausage
and Psylli Turmeric Pancakes

I believe I’ve mentioned once or twice, that Sunday brunch is a special thing between Denny, “the boys” and me. We try to cook a beautiful brunch each week as a way of having time to relax and visit, drink a few cups of quality decaff coffee, and catch up with what’s gone down the previous week and what we face in the coming week. The kitchen feels warm and inviting, the fragrances emanating from it smell divine, and time slows down. Relaxation and joy in the moment is the order of the day. Brunch is the meal I look most forward to each week.

Low carb brunch includes eggs, breakfast meats, eggs, Psylli Turmeric Pancakes
and the obligatory brunch strawberry.

Brunch doesn’t ever follow a specific food genre and the only things you can guarantee are:

1. Brunch will be low carb, keto and primal-ish (remember I’m no angel).

2. Brunch will taste fan-freakin-tastic and will usually be an homage to the Sunday breakfasts we experienced at “Gibbs Croft,” growing up.

3. We will have fantastic conversations and a lot of laughter and cutting up.

4. Denny and the boys will do the dishes. (Sssshhhhh don’t tell them this is a rule—they don’t know it…)

Psylli Turmeric Pancakes work as both a savory or
a sweet component. They rocked with sugar free
maple syrup!

This week, brunch featured two dishes; one new, one old. Radish browns were among the first low carb foods I learned to make. Finding a potato or fauxtato sub--Denny and "the boys" are total dude-food afficianados, so it was imperative and I found that cauliflower and radishes filled-the-bill, nicely, in different respects. Radishes work great as radish browns, roasted radishes, radish fauxtato salad, as subs in stews and soups and in stir fries. Plus, they rule raw with butter and sea salt or in salads and as a DDS (Dip Delivery System).

The new dish is flat psylli. I mean really psylli!! It’s so psylli, it’s almost ludicrous. We’ll deal with that recipe over on the Fast Days Healing Days website, since the new recipe is ridiculously low calorie as well as low carb--fitting great into a Fast Day meal.

But get ready, cuz we’re about to melt your heart with our Radish Browns recipe. It’s super-simple, super-flavorful and although it doesn’t have the texture of hash browns, it does have a familiar texture and a very familiar flavor you’ll love.

Radish Browns are fantastic with eggs, bacon, sausage and other traditional breakfast and brunch foods. But what few realize, they rock the casa in breakfast tacos! Combine Radish Browns with scrambled eggs, salsa, cheese, and maybe a bit of cilantro wrapped in one of Fluffy Chix Cook’s low carb tortilla variations and oh my. Well, get ready to write a thank you note in the comments section! Try them with our Psylli Wraps for a totally guilt-free, keto-licious breakfast alternative.

Oh, let me share our Brunch Menu this morning:

2 large over-medium fried eggs in 1 tsp Bacon Grease
1 thick slice Jalapeno Smoked Bacon (yes, I DID say jalapeno-smoked bacon)
1 turkey sausage patty
2 Psylli Turmeric Pancakes
1 tsp butter
1 Tbsp sugar free maple syrup
½ recipe Radish Browns (recipe follows)

Guess what the totals are for the meal? Bet you can’t guess! Ok, I’ll tell you!

Brunch Totals:
517 Calories; 39g Fat (68.2% calories from fat); 28g Protein; 13g Carbohydrate; 6g Dietary Fiber; 487mg Cholesterol; 7g Net Carbs

Wow, did I just say 7g Net Carbohydrate and only 517 calories? Youbetcha! :D The wonders of low carb will never cease!

Radish Browns
Radish Browns make you forget you once had
and illicit love affair with potatoes that produced
two love children you wore on your booty.

Serving Size: 1/2-1/3 recipe      Yield: 2-3 Servings
Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking: 10 Minutes
Start to finish: 20 Minutes

A delicious and satisfying keto alternative to hash browns. Reheats great and makes convenient breakfast food on the run when used in breakfast tacos.

1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon bacon grease, or butter
1 1/2 cups sliced radishes
1 green onions, chopped
1/8 cup red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/8 cup red onion, chopped
1 jalapeno chile pepper, sliced thinly with seeds
2 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and sliced thinly
sea salt
fresh ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook to desired doneness, stirring frequently. Enjoy!

NOTES: The flavor of these Radish Browns will fool your palate into believing you've just had hash browns, but the texture is not potato-like. We enjoy our RBs just a little crisp with a bit of body, but you decide!

  1. This looks brilliant! I did a nice brunch for the boys and I this morning too. My honey is away working, and it's not often my two youngest are home on Sunday morning, so it was a treat. I made coconut flour pancakes, eggs over easy, and gorgeous, local Canadian bacon. Yum!
    We watched Olympics in the kitchen while we ate...CBC is streaming it live on the internet. Gotta love how GREAT those Jamaican bobsledders look in Spandex!! (so what if they came in last)

    1. Arlene, your brunch sounds divine! Don't you just love spending lazy Sunday mornings with the ones you love? I'm so impressed, local Canadian bacon! You=LUCKY!

      LOL on Jamaican bobsled Spandex! :D

  2. Love me some roasted radishes! Great idea for "rash" browns!
    Yum yum! These look so delish!

    1. Aren't roasted radishes wonderful? The radish browns are always a hit here. Hard to decide whether we prefer radish browns, cauli browns, or zucchini browns. They are each so different but so great!!! Hope you are doing well and great to see you as usual!

  3. I've also used Daikon radish in 'rash' browns and they were fantastic!!

    1. Alice, thanks for the great idea! I do love daikons as pickles and zoodles, but never thought of doing them in radish browns! Good one, girl!!! Thanks!
