If tater tots or potato latkes have been your lifelong guilty-pleasure, then you will love this spicy zucchini hash. The crispy hash is made with fiber-rich zucchini, a perfect low-carb alternative to potatoes. Garnish your hash with vegan pepper jack cheese, or diced avocado, or and fresh cilantro for an abundance of savory flavors. (If you need ketchup, choose one with no added sugar, like Primal Kitchen, which makes an unsweetened option.)
