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:
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
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
