If you have never heard of potato rösti before, you’re totally missing out! Originally, potato rösti is a fritter-style Swiss dish, that mainly consist out of potatoes. Now, if you love potatoes like I do, you’re gonna adore this potato rösti tower creation of mine! 🙂 Usually, röstis are smaller, in the round shape of a frying pan. However, since I’m not a big fan of oil I decided to go out of the conventional and create a new and exciting version of this dish. It really reminds me of my childhood memories, as you’ll oftentimes find this dish also in the south of Germany.
To spice the potato rösti tower up a bit, I also added in zucchini, carrots, onion and green onion. The chickpea flower and flax ‘eggs’ make sure that the rösti holds together and give it a little extra nutritional value. In between the squares you can put any spread you like. I decided for my all-time favourite cashew cream cheeze, as it goes with almost anything and is heavenly creamy in between those potato layers!
- 3 medium-sized potatoes (washed, not peeled)
- 2 medium carrots, peeled
- 1 medium zucchini
- 1 small onion, cut into cubes
- 2-3 stalks of green onion, cut into rings
- ⅓ cup chickpea flour
- 2 flax 'eggs' (2 Tbsp ground flax seeds with 4 Tbsp water)
- 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 Tbsp paprika powder
- 1 Tbsp garlic powder
- dash of water
- Cashew cream cheeze
- Prepare the flax 'egg' and set aside for 5 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 175°C/ 350F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Prepare all the veggies as instructed. Grate the potatoes, zucchini and carrots and place into a medium sized bowl, together with the other vegetables.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk together with a spatula. You want the dough to be quite sticky (if it's too dry add a bit more water).
- Place the mixture on the baking tray and evenly spread it with the spatula.
- Place the tray in the oven and bake until golden brown and crispy (will take about 35 minutes).
- Let it cool down for a few minutes and cut the potato röstis into even squares.
- Take layer, add the cashew cheeze on top and repeat this step until you have a small tower (for me 3 layers is enough but you can build it higher if you want).
- Top with some more green onions and enjoy.
