Ingredients

  • 1 lb 450 g grated cauliflower
  • 3 oz. 75 g butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 3 oz. 75 g pimiento de padronpimientos de padron or poblano pepperpoblano peppers
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp olive oil
  • ½ cup 125 ml mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp garlic powder or onion powder (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix mayonnaise and garlic or onion powder in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Grate the cauliflower, including the stem; either use a grater or chop into rough but fairly small pieces in a food processor.
  3. Fry grated cauliflower for about five minutes in a generous amount of butter or oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Brush some oil on the poblanos. Fry or grill until the skin starts to bubble a little bit.
  5. Fry the eggs as you like them. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve directly with the roasted poblanos and cauliflower hash. Top with a nice dollop of the seasoned mayo.

Tip!

If you enjoy dairy, cheese sticks or fried halloumi cheese make a nice addition. Crumbled feta is also tasty — it really compliments the roasted peppers!

We feature mild green poblano peppers here, but you can substitute peppers of any color or level of heat! If you don't care for peppers, try sliced avocado instead.

    Hi. Thanks for this recipe.
    Can I ask please what can I substitute for poblano peppers?
    I believe this is not available in my country (Philippines), or would be difficult to find.
    Thank you!

    Watch out for those poblano seeds. spicy! i washed my hands and then touched my face and I still had a lingering burn on my face afterwards. I recommend substituting poblano with bell peppers. Better since no spicy seeds.

    Please forgive me, but the picture does NOT have poblano chiles in it, they look more like Shishito peppers.

    My wife has recently discovered that plants in the nightshade family cause her joints to swell.

    This was a delicious recipe but I discovered the hard way that it's NOT a good idea to use pickled peppers! Even though I had rinsed them first, the vinegar just burned right off them and created fumes in the air that made me cough and my eyes water. They tasted fine after, but it really wasn't worth the toxic fumes. Be warned :-)
