From the Jewish Food Hero Kitchen: Vegan Potato and Spinach Patties
My maternal grandmother used to make these from day old mashed potatoes. Her recipe included potatoes, milk, eggs and butter. I used to love them! In the cookbook The Book of Jewish Food: An Odyssey from Samarkand to New York there is a related recipe called “Sfongo”. Sfongo that is a potato and spinach layered pie (rather than a patty) that is served as a dairy meal during the week of Passover. That recipe, like my grandmother’s is filled with milk, eggs and butter.
I wanted a healthier potato and spinach patty recipe so I’ve adapted my grandmother’s traditional recipe with healthy ingredients that are all plant based.
These healthier potato spinach patties are:
Just as delicious as the dairy heavy version and feel a lot better in our bodies
Creamy on the inside and crunchy on the outside (from the bread crumb crust)
