Ingredients:

  • 1 lb potatoes, shredded  (tip – potatoes are easier to shred if you parboil them first!  Put ’em on the stove in a pot of boiling water for 4 to 6 minutes.)
  • 1 onion, chopped (I find that the best kind of onion is yellow, wide, short, and sweet.)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley (or if you don’t wanna bother with that, some Italian seasoning or fresh chives will also work.)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Place the shredded potatoes in a strainer and rinse well under cold water to remove excess starch.  This will make it fry well.  Drain.
  2. Place the potatoes in a bowl with the onion, parsley, eggs, and salt and pepper to taste.  Mix thoroughly and divide into rounds.
  3. Heat the oil in an 8 or 9 inch heavy-based skillet.  Cast iron works great.  Add the potato cakes to pan in batches, and pat lightly with spatula. Fry them on medium low for 8 to 10 minutes until the undersides are crisp and brown, then fry the other side for 10 minutes until also crispy brown.
  4. Season with salt + pepper and serve immediately!

Enjoy!

Posted on Updated on

crepes

These crepes are dairy free, but not vegan – unless you use a vegan egg substitute!

Makes 12 crepes.  Ready in  15 minutes.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup soymilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted, + a little extra to grease the skillet/griddle
  • 3/4 cup gluten free flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Instructions:

  1. Gather ingredients. In a medium bowl, beat eggs until thoroughly mixed.  Add soymilk, vanilla, and melted coconut oil.  Stir.  Add brown sugar and gluten free flour.
  2. Lightly grease your skillet or griddle.  Turn to medium-high heat.
  3. When a drop of water flicked in the pan sizzles, it’s ready.
  4. Crepes will pour thin – this is what makes them so good!  They cook fast, so keep an eye on them.
  5. Serve immediately with fresh fruit, powdered sugar, or syrup. The possibilities are endless!
  6. Enjoy!
