The aroma of cooking rosti is irresistible ! This Swiss potato pancake makes a great accompaniment for almost all dishes. Rosti is also great on its own as a light lunch treat with a green salad or for breakfast served with grilled tomatoes or baked beans.
2 lbs of potatoes, peeled
1 large yellow onion, very finely chopped
2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp chopped fresh chives
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
Bring a saucepan of water to a boil, add potatoes and parboil for 4 minutes. Remove the
potatoes and place in cold water to cool. When cool roughly shred them into a large bowl. Add the onion, salt, pepper, 3 tablespoons of the oil, chives and parsley. Mix the ingredients well.
Heat the remaining oil in a nonstick skillet over a high heat. When it is very hot add the potato mixture, pressing down firmly with the palm of your hand. Reduce the heat and cook until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Carefully flip the rosti and brown the other side.
OR make individual patties, each 1/3 of a cup and cook as above.
