Potato and Courgette Rösti
Potato and Courgette Rösti with sautéed Chard and peas, topped with a poached egg.
For the Rösti, grate a couple of potatoes and courgettes in to a bowl and liberally sprinkle with salt. Let it sit for 30 min, so the salt can draw out the moisture.
After half an hour, squeeze the potato mixture, getting out as much liquid as possible. Then season the dry (dryish) potatoes, I use mustard powder a bit of pepper and thinly sliced scallions.
In a hot pan, put a good chunk of butter and a little oil and when ready pour the mixture and press down. leave for about 5 minutes (depending on how thick it is) then flip and cook for another 5 minutes (use of a chopping board or plate to flip the Rösti makes light work of it)
Photo's to follow, and a couple more posts, I've had some difficulty getting in to the site recently.
