I got some Jerusalem artichokes in my veg bag and I was hunting about for interesting things to do with them. These latkes were what I found. They are quite tasty, but they don't hold together all that well! This is also a massive amount for 2 people!! I served it with cottage cheese too.
Jerusalem Artichoke Latkes (from Naturally Ella)
225g potatoes, grated
112g parsnips, grated
1 large egg
2 tbsp plain flour
1 tbsp chopped chives
salt and pepper
2 to 3 tbsp oil for frying
2 poached eggs
Put the grated Jerusalem artichokes, potatoes and parsnips in a clean tea towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out all the excess liquid. Place in a bowl and add the eggs, flour, chives, salt, and pepper and mix.
Heat a medium, frying pan over medium-low heat. Add a tbsp of the oil and swirl around the pan. Wet your hands and measure out about 3 tbsp of the Jerusalem artichoke mixture. Pat into a patty that’s about ¼in thick. Place in the heated pan and fry for three mins. Flip and fry for another three mins. The outsides should be golden and crisp while the inside should be hot.
Repeat with remaining mixture. Add more oil as needed. Divide between four plates and serve topped with poached eggs, sriracha, and chives.
