Parsley Root Rosti with Kale and Red Currants

Ingredients: 200g purple and new potatoes, 1 parsley root, 1-2 carrots, 2-3 shallots, 1 garlic clove, small bunch of tarragon, 60g red currants, a large handful of kale.

Larder: 2 eggs, 3 tsp sugar, oil salt and pepper.

Instructions:

  • Parboil the potatoes for 5 minutes. Drain and run under the cold tap to cool them down enough to handle.
  • Grate the parsley root, carrot and parboiled potatoes into a bowl. Chop tarragon leaves and add to the bowl along with 2 eggs.
  • Finely dice the shallots and garlic clove. Add ¾ to the rösti bowl and set the other ¼ aside. Mix the rösti mixture well and season.
  • Place the remaining chopped shallot and garlic into a small saucepan with a tsp of oil and start to sauté. Pick the red currants from their stem and add to the pan along with 3 tsp sugar. Just cover with water and simmer for a 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently until a saucy consistency. Add more water in tiny amounts if needed.cooking-rostis-600px
  • Heat a little oil in a large frying pan. Using a large serving spoon, spoon out portions of rösti into the frying pan and flatten. Don’t worry if they are loose – the egg will bind the mixture together. Cook for about 3-5 minutes until golden on one side before carefully flipping over and cooking the second side. When golden and crispy on both sides, remove from the pan and place on a plate.
  • Chop the kale, place in a saucepan and cover with boiling water. Cook for 3-4 minutes until bright green and a little crunchy.
  • Serve the röstis with red currant sauce and kale on the side.
