Real vegetarian food, served in an imaginary world...

Tuesday 29 September 2020


This is a lovely spicy dish which is high in flavour and low in naughtiness. It is like a potato rosti but healthier. The other benefit of using these vegetables instead of potatoes, is that you don't need to go through the process of removing the moisture before you can cook them. Spray oil also means that they do not become greasy. 

Makes 6 (serves 3 - 4)

2 carrots, peeled
2 parsnips, peeled
1 onion, peeled
1 courgette
2tsp rose harissa paste 
6 eggs
salt and black pepper
spray oil

Grate all the vegetables into a bowl using a box grater.
Season and mix together well.
Stir in the harissa paste. (This will make it very spicy as well as binding.) 
Spray a pan and heat.
Fry in batches over a low heat. The lower the heat and the longer you fry for, the more robust they will be. 
Turn very carefully at intervals. 
Place on a plate to keep warm. 
Fry the eggs.
Top each one with an egg.
