Try these potato pancakes and get creative by adding your favorite herbs and spices!
I have made these at the house of a friend who gives a party featuring potato pancakes every year. He loves making them and gets really creative, tossing in hot sauce or different herbs. You can be as creative as you like with yours. Mine are a simple version, and I like to serve them with fresh applesauce.
Food as Medicine
Potatoes are typically fried or drenched in fatty sauces, but a potato on its own is remarkably low in calories (at 132 per cup). This humble vegetable is also high in vitamins C and B6, providing about 25 percent of the daily requirements for each nutrient.
Tip from Rosie’s Kitchen
I sometimes add 1/4 cup chopped fresh sorrel leaves or chives to the batter. Sorrel, an herb that belongs to the buckwheat family, is in season during the spring. Its leaves are similar to spinach, and you’ll want to buy the bunch that has bright green ones. Don’t buy it if the leaves look wilted or pale in color.
