POTATO AND CELERIAC RÖSTI WITH EGGS AND SALSA PICCANTE

bark

It is strange how comfort food seems to appear in my mind during the winter, I suppose it has to do with it usually being more packed with carbohydrates hat seems to have a very comforting impact on me, I wonder if carbohydrates are our time’s opium for the people? We eat it and feel comfort and as the carbohydrates invade our bodies and minds, we feel less inclined to look critically at what surrounds us. Maybe. But I still want my comfort food. This dish is one of my comfort food dishes and the good thing about it is that it is not only carbohydrates in it but even some proteins and vitamins as well and who am I to complain about that? Another aspect that we shouldn’t disreagrd is that this is one of those naturally gluten-free dishes that you can serve for lunch without making eventual gf friends or family members feel left outside so I obviously include it in my Gluten-free Friday series!

Potato and Celeriac Rösti With Egg and Salsa Piccante

POTATO AND CELERIAC RÖSTI WITH EGGS AND SALSA PICCANTE
1 serving

1 medium potato
1 piece celeriac root, a little smaller than the potato
1 egg
1 tomato
fresh chili pepper
1 scallion
1 tsp parsley, finely chopped
0,5-1 tsp lime juice
salt
extra-virgin olive oil

– Chop the tomato, the scallion and as much chili pepper you want finely. Put it a bowl, add lime juice and a little olive oil and mix well.
– Peel and grate the potato and celeriac coarsely. Mix in a bowl with salt.
– Take out a non-stick pan, pour in some olive oil and start frying the rösti, it should have the form of a small pancake. Cook on low heat to begin with to not burn it, it needs to be cooked in the middle too.
– Turn it over and now it is time to fry the egg, if you do it in an egg ring you will avoid that the egg floats out and get bigger than the rösti.
– While the rösti and egg cook, add salt and parsley to the salsa and mix.
– Put the rösti on a plate with the egg on it and then top it all with the salsa piccante.
