Rösti (potato and zucchini fritters)
Almost every year our garden is filled with beautiful zucchinis / courgettes, which means every week our kitchen counter is filled with the most amazing produce. We love grilled zucchini or added in salads, pasta dishes, risottos etc. However it's also great to try something new and so we decided to add them into our potato rösti (which are actually Swiss potato fritters). This treat is super easy to make, it's affordable and has only 4 simple ingredients: potatoes, zucchini, vegetable oil and sea salt. You know how they say: Simplicity at its finest. We often serve them with a bowl of fresh, seasonal salad and we sometimes add a generous dollop of sour cream on top of it. Really good.

Lets get cooking!

METHOD

  • Preparation

    Peel the potatoes and grate them into a bowl. Also grate your zucchini. Transfer the vegetable mixture onto a kitchen towel, fold it to form a ball and squeeze to remove as much moisture as possible.

  • Fry

    Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add the vegetable oil (or clarified butter). Fill the pan with the potato and zucchini mixture and gently push down. Fry the rösti for 10 minutes on each side or until golden brown, but still tender inside.

  • Serve

    Remove from the pan, season with sea salt and drain on kitchen paper. Serve with a generous dollop of sour cream or serve with a bowl of fresh, seasonal salad. Or you can serve it with poached egg, fried egg and bleached swiss chard / spinach. Enjoy.
