Rich Fortnum (firstname.lastname@example.org) asked for a low fat
potato pancake recipe. Here's mine (in the Healthy Heart Handbook):
Potato Pancakes (Latkes) (T)
1.5 C shredded potato (can use frozen "Simply Potato" shreds)
2 T oat flour (or 2 T rolled oats milled into flour)
1/4 C chopped onion (or 4 T dried onion)
1/4 C water
pinch salt, fresh ground black pepper
Mix flour and water, add onions and potato. Add a bit more
water if needed to form thick pancake batter. Fry till golden
brown with some darker spots in non-stick pan with a 1/2 second
spray of Pam. Serve with applesauce. Makes 4 large pancakes.
I've had very good results with the plastic bags of frozen Simply Potato,
a shredded potato that is the only one I could find without added oil.
More costly than shredding your own potato, it saves time and also
makes excellent hash browns (add onions, fry in non-stick pan, no oil).
Putting a little rolled oats into a blender or coffee mill makes oat
flour in a jiffy. No need to go out and buy and store oat flour.
