Using the Leftovers

When we make mashed potatoes, we make a lot more than we’re going to eat that day. Then the next day or two we can cook other things using the mashed potatoes. They’re great for different kinds of doughs, casserole, or you can make potato pancakes.

mashed potatoes
wheat flour
soy or oat milk
oil for frying
optional: vegetables

Make a soft mixture from mashed potatoes, flour and soy milk. For 1 l mashed potatoes you’ll need about 1 dl flour and 1 dl milk. Add spices, I used herb salt, garlic powder, parsley and basil this time. You can also add some vegetables if you want to. For example chopped onions,  spinach, mushrooms or grated carrots are good. I used dried chard this time.

Heat oil in a frying pan, form small pancakes in your hands and fry them until they are brown. Don’t try to flip them until the edges turn brown, because they break easily if you try to flip them too soon.

  1. I do the same thing too – do it with all the veg. Leftover meals like this are one of my favourites.

    I love potatoes in all their forms! These look great though – I like that you can just use the mashed potatoes from the night before! No grating or anything.
