Healthy lupin hash browns
One food that lupin flour goes really well in but I don't make often is fritters or hash browns, to me there is just too much work in creating them & then I make too many & they sit in the fridge forever & they aren't eaten.
The problem I have is that they're one food that Robert LOVES ♥ & I do feel for him, because he loves a good homemade hash brown, I just don't make them.
Today Robert came home for food, I would call it breakfast but it probably is more like brunch, yet it's not guaranteed he won't be in for lunch, so it's food. Anyway, he came home for food & just out of the blue I thought I'd make him some hash browns. Ummmm, recipe? Not sure, let's do a quick google because I have an idea, I just want to confirm it. I whipped out a potato, some wholemeal lupin flour & an egg, combined them with some salt & pepper & voila, they turned out spectacularly.
And he was surprised & delighted by the end result (so was I), so I thought I really needed to share the recipe with you here. They're super easy & it made enough for Robert & I to eat, so they're all gone. This recipe makes 4-6 hash browns, if you need more, just increase your ingredients accordingly.
HEALTHY LUPIN HASH BROWNS
YOU WILL NEED
1 potato (approx 250g)
1 heaped Tablespoon wholemeal lupin flour
Salt & pepper
Oil for cooking hash browns in
NOW WHIP IT UP
Wash & grate potato (I leave the skin on for extra fibre), once grated make sure you squeeze out the liquid, I just take a handful of the potato & squeeze, otherwise you can do it with a clean tea towel or paper towel.
Put oil in fry-pan & heat to a medium-high heat
Combine grated potato, lupin flour, egg, salt & pepper in a bowl & mix well
Drop spoonfuls of the potato mix into the hot oil & cook till brown, then turn over with an egg flip to cook through the other side & until golden brown
Take hash browns out of fry-pan & sit on paper towel to drain excess oil
The lupin flour adds this golden hue of deliciousness, while also giving the outside a spectacular crispness. It is filling, tasty & healthy too. What more could you want.
Now that I have this recipe under my belt I feel there will be more fritters & hash browns created with these quantities.
You can devour with a healthy serving of bacon, cooked tomatoes & a sprinkling of rocket for that extra hit of pepper.
I hope you give this recipe a go, I'd love to hear what you think, or if you try adding other ingredients to switch it around a little.
