I have been meaning to make these for a while now, but for some reason they didn't seem dinnery enough to make, and so I made them for breakfast instead!
Latkes could also be used as an accompaniment to many dishes as well as the main piece. They taste delicious with sweet chilli sauce (everything seems to do these days!), and I added some nutritional yeast to them as well, but that is optional!
(Makes 5-6, about 560 calories for the lot)
250g potatoes, grated (you don't even have to peel them, just give them a good wash!)
2 small eggs
2 Spring onions, chopped
10g nutritional yeast (optional)
1-2 tbsp low fat cottage cheese (you can also use ricotta)
1 tbsp olive oil
- Start by mixing everything except from the oil in a bowl. Then, heat a little oil at a time in a pan.
- Put a heaped tablespoon of the latkes mixture into the frying pan, and repeat. Fry them on medium heat for about 5 minutes on the first side and 2-3 on the other. Do NOT flip them until they have set, as you will end up just getting a pile of mush. I was actually quite worried they wouldn't set enough, but a few minutes later aaaall was good, and then I had a lovely breakfast!
