When you first go Paleo, SCD, GAPS, Starch-free and/or Low Carb, I think potatoes are one of the first things that you really notice missing from your dinner plate. At least for me I was feeling pretty potato deprived when I first started SCD six years ago, but I gottta say, I have been pretty darn successful at living without them over the years! They don’t even tempt me even more. Now potatoes just look like a tasteless blob of starch compared to all the other flavorful nutrient dense veggies I have learned to replace them with. Meet my new flavorful low carb breakfast hash coming to a plate near you!
Wouldn’t it be the BEST if diners would offer us the option of this low starch hash so we could get a little more lazy on the weekends and actually go out for brunch more often!? I WISH! This hash is super flexible and you can feature any of your favorite low carb veggies. I personally love how celery root, kohlrabi, green apple, and fennel, go together, but if you are more of a cauliflower & faux-potatoes girl, go for it!
Tasty lil’ Rosemary Blossoms and a hardworking Honey Bee!!
I love garnishing with edible flowers and fresh flavorful herbs. For this photo I sprinkled on lavender colored rosemary blossoms (that I “foraged” from the park), petals from a chive blossom, fresh dill, pea shoots, and chives from my herb garden.
