Start With a Few Vegetables


Simple is often best. A great side dish (or if you’re like me) a whole meal can be made out of a few lonely vegetables left in the bin.

I spiralized a carrot, a small zucchini, and a red potato using the “spaghetti” blade. I then switched to the slicer blade to spiralize an onion. A quick chop right on the mat resulted in pretty uniform shreds.

Transfer to a bowl. Add about 1/4 cup of flour, a teaspoon of baking powder, an egg (or two depending on size,)  some salt, pepper, and a shake of red pepper flakes. Coat a skillet with canola oil. Spoon generous tablespoons of the mixture into the hot oil. Fry until brown on one side and turn over to finish. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm on a rack in a 200 degree oven until all are cooked.

Serve as soon as possible with a side of Siggi’s Icelandic ( or Greek) yogurt. You could certainly use sour cream if you prefer.
