Vegan Hash Brown Patties

Makes 18 patties


  • 3 large white or yellow potatoes ($1.06)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder ($0.02)
  • 3 tablespoons olive or avocado oil ($0.33)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon sea salt ($0.01) (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper ($0.01) (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease a baking sheet well. Wash and scrub the potatoes, then grate each one on the large side of a box grater.
  2. Transfer to a strainer and rinse the potatoes, then transfer to a bowl of cold water to sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Drain the water and squeeze the potatoes as thoroughly as you can (cheesecloth works well for this). Then, combine potatoes, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  4. Add small mounds of potatoes to the baking sheet. Even out the edges and gently press down on them to form patties.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, carefully flips, and brush with more oil. Bake another 15-20 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Enjoy while warm with ketchup, dairy-free sour cream, or Sriracha. Enjoy!


  • You can also cook the patties in a non-stick skillet with avocado or olive oil. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side over medium heat.
