Spinach and Chive Mashed Potato Pancakes


Arikka is amazing with vegan food and shes’s always mentioned these mashed potato pancakes she makes when shes’s running low on food in the house.  I was in the same situation this week and had a massive craving for carbs.  These pancakes were so awesome.  It’s one of those lunches that I start thinking about before I even get to work in the morning.

8-10 boiled Yukon Gold potatoes (about 4 cups cubed)

2 cups fresh baby spinach, chopped

1 cup onions, sliced

1 cup chives, chopped

1/3 cup coconut milk

2 tbsp whole wheat flour, plus some for coating

5 cloves garlic, minced

3-4 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

  • In a frying pan over medium heat, cook onions in 1 tbsp oil and stir frequently for 7-8 minutes or until translucent
  • Mash the potatoes with the coconut milk, flour, garlic, salt and pepper, then stir until creamy
  • Then stir in spinach, onions and chives and mix again
  • In another frying pan, heat the remaining oil over medium heat
  • Mold the potato mixture into pancakes and dust both sides with flour
  • Put into oil once it’s crackling
  • Cook on both sides, for about 5 minutes each or until browned and crispy
