Keto Cauliflower Hash Browns with Spinach and Bacon

 Have you got some vegetable leftovers, and you have no idea what to do with them? Let’s prepare a keto-friendly breakfast packed with health benefits in 10 minutes only.

By now, you know how much we like to incorporate cauliflower in our Ketoasap recipes, we have been using it in place of bread crusts, potatoes, rice, and even some meats. It is incredibly versatile and offers endless possibilities to what your palate desires.

We all know that vegetables are great for our health but what makes this crucifer special is its sulfur-containing compounds known as the glucosinolates. Glucosinolates are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, which help in cancer prevention and other major diseases. (1, 2, 3)

Spinach is one of the vegetables that are frequently overlooked, we at Ketoasap like to use it as much as possible in our recipes for its powerful health benefits. It is rich in MGDG and SQDG, which play an important role in slowing down cancer growth, especially prostate and breast cancer. (4, 5)
