You may think potatoes can lead to weight gain, but in reality they’re 100% natural, fat-free and contain a wealth of health benefits. They are not exactly good for you when dropped into a deep fryer, but they are packed with powerful nutrients and antioxidants.
Potatoes are also versatile with so many ways to prepare them. They can be baked, mashed, boiled, whipped or fried. And despite the traditional forms of cooking (roast potatoes, mash or fries) – they can be used for appetizers, soups, starters, mains and even desserts. Potatoes are more than just a bit on the side!
For making the cakes, you’ll need to whisk the eggs, add flour, grated potatoes, garlic, salt and pepper and mix until smooth. Place 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat and cook the cakes until golden. You can either eat them plain (they’re just as delicious) or topped with a tomato and roasted corn salsa. The toppings for this are just my seasonal favourites and so easy to prepare. Cut the fresh cherry tomotaoes, roast the corn on a grill pan, add a splash of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
A budget-friendly, stress free and easy recipe that will surely impress your guests or members of family. Bon appétit!
