It’s another triumph for the julienne peeler (see Cucunoodle for context). Anyway, these little beauties are deliciously delicious, and I’m going to make them for tea tonight.
Arghhh, just realised I don’t have a julienne peeler, but I’m going to check the middle drawer in my kitchen – where I keep all the random items that my mum (sorry, Santa Claus) gives me each Christmas and which I feel too guilty to throw away*. There may well be one in there, I just never knew what it was!
*Don’t you judge me, we all have a middle drawer somewhere
Anyway (and this recipe makes loads):
Julienne peel 1kg peeled potatoes and 500g courgette.
Squeeze as much moisture as possible from the potato and courgette by putting in a tea towel (this might stain your tea towel so be warned).
Add 50g flour and 100ml Aquafaba (which is the water from chickpeas – either a tin or after you’ve boiled up dried ones). The flour and aquafaba makes the ‘glue’ to hold the potato and courgette together.
Add salt and pepper
Take a handful and squeeze again to form the rosti and to get rid of any excess water**
Fry until golden.
**This excess water makes really nice pancakes when fried by the way (add a bit of flour if the water is too thin).
