Lazy days of summer hit Chicago like a brick Monday. Suddenly everything is green.
Rooftop boxes are sown with plants and herbs kept inside for weeks because of the cold. Boat sails dot the lake, bikes fill the paths, lawn trimmers buzz, the air is humid and tweets say… get out and play.
This is an easy delicious recipe adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine. They look like a savory version of Florentine cookies with their lacy layers. A true hash-brown-hound could eat the whole batch!
I speak from experience.
So double up… it’s a crowd pleaser.
Rösti aka Florentine Hash Browns
This recipe adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine.
2 medium white potatoes
2 large carrots
½ cup fresh parsley
1 cup chopped onion
3 eggs, use 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites
¼ cup flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
Chilpotle Pepper Adobo Tomato Sauce
1 Chilpotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce
1 cup diced and fire roasted tomatoes
Grate potatoes, carrots, I used the food processor. Place in a clean kitchen towel used for vegetables, (carrots stain) squeeze to remove excess liquid.
Transfer to a bowl and stir in onion, flour and garlic. Fold in eggs and season with salt and pepper.
Coat large skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat.
Spoon 2 tablespoons Rösti mixture for each patty, shaping with spoon to flatten and make patties. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until bottoms are crisp.
Carefully flip with spatula and cook 2 minutes more, or until browned on both sides.
Whisk together 1 Chilpotle pepper in Adobo Sauce and diced tomato sauce. Place in bowl. Serve.
Love the way they look so golden. I think you have a winner I’ll have to make them soon to make sure!
Thanks Kris. I think it would be fun to try any other root vegetables that way.
Yum and all stuff we have in the fridge. I love the simplicity, yet diversity…I am thinking this dish could be served so many ways on so many days. It could be the culinary equivalent of a little black dress
Love that little black dress analogy!
Don’t know about the “Hash browns” but the picture, “Seeds of Summer” is a sure winner!
Thanks Carmen, Can’t wait to share some time together this summer.
