Kate Percy’s potato rosti

At times, life may be a bit hectic - family, running, work, cycling, sport, running, cycling (!) - but I still want to eat well and not snack on bad stuff! If you’ve read any of my other recipe write-ups, you’ll have seen that I like dishes that are:

1. vegan

2. quick

3. simple

4. nutritious

5. tasty

Well, this is one of those, thank goodness. This rosti is good as part of a post exercise meal, in particular, to help you recover and be good to go again tomorrow - it supplies a good portion of carbs and some protein.

I followed the easy recipe, but kept an eye on how much oil to use - enough to fry, not more than you need. Sunflower oil contains some good fats but I still want to be careful how much I use.

Ingredients to serve four

100g potatoes, grated

Crushed garlic clove


Black pepper 

Sunflower oil

I probably grated the potato a bit too chunky, more like thin slices, because I like texture. I suspect this made it a bit difficult to form the patties that were. They held together fine, but weren’t so pretty or neat - I’d have been rubbish on GBBO! I also cooked the patties for longer than the 10 minutes recommended, in fact, until a knife went through them easily and I knew the potato was cooked.

The end product was well tasty and a cinch to make, keep this one handy!
