  • 4 small zucchini, grated and squeezed dry

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder, or more to taste

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (Optional)

  • 2 eggs, beaten


  1. Combine zucchini with coconut oil and butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add Parmesan cheese, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Stir until cheese melts.

  2. Reduce heat to low and add eggs; stir quickly until fully mixed in. Increase heat back to medium and cook, stirring and flipping occasionally, until edges of the hash are lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Himalayan pink salt also works well in this.
