Introduction: Spinach Mashed Potato Latkes

About: An engineer, seamstress, cook, coder, and overall maker. Spent a summer at Instructables; got a degree in E: Neural Engineering at Olin College; made a microcontroller (tessel.io); now thinking about climate...

Inspired by these mashed potato spinach patties, I decided to do my own take on the dish. They're delicious, and can be made vegan if you don't use eggs/use a butter substitute.


Ingredients:
2 lbs red potatoes
1/2 c each: green onion, spinach, grated onion, parsley
olive oil
1 T yogurt
1 T butter
2 eggs


Save out a potato or two and cube the rest.


Steam cubed potatoes until soft.


Meanwhile, grate remaining potatoes and onion. Chop greens.


In a bowl, add yogurt and butter to cooked potatoes. Mash; salt and pepper to taste.



Add greens/grated potato and onion to mashed potatoes. If using eggs, add those. (The eggs really aren't necessary; I just wanted the protein.)



Heat oil in a saucepan. Make balls of potato mixture and flatten in pan.



Fry, flip, eat!



Delicious topped with lebany (kefir cheese- though sour cream or yogurt or applesauce would also be good) and fresh parsley.
