Papas Arrugadas with Vegetable Pancakes

  If you’ve ever been to the Canary Islands, you will most likely have tried this dish. Traditionally it’s made from small potatoes that are boiled in sea – water, I like to add some onions and garlic though. The potatoes itself contain only 2 weight watchers points, the vegetable pancakes 2 or more each, depending on how much cheese you decide to add

What you need:

For potatoes:
2 1/2 lbs small potatoes
roughly 1/4 c coarse sea salt

1 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs onion powder

For vegetable pan cakes:
2 big carrots
2 celery stalks
1/2 zucchini
2 eggs

Boil potatoes in salty water (add onion and garlic powder if you like). Simmer for 20 minutes.
In the meantime preheat oven to 350 °F, prepare very thin slices of carrots, celery and zucchini and mix with eggs, cheese and salt in a big bowl. Make 4 circles out of it and bake for 15 – 20 min.
Drain most of the water from the pot and cover the potatoes with a layer of salt. Turn down the heat and gently shake the pot so that salt crystallizes on the potatoes. Lastly, turn off the heat and cover the pot with a tea-towel for 5 minutes

Traditionally it’s served with red or green Mojo (I’ll add a recipe for those soon) but you can also eat it with guacamole or any kind of salsa. They taste good without any kind of dip though
