Potato Dishes

I was born in Central Hesse, so I have a special relationship with potatoes. When I was a little kid, my mother took me to the field and let me collect what the harvesting machine had missed. I thought this chore was exciting and had something to show for it when I was done. As the German saying goes, "The dumbest farmer harvests the biggest potatoes..."

The carbohydrate content of potatoes is only about 12-15%, and if they're cooked in enough water, a portion of the carbs will remain in the water. An average serving of potatoes is about 8-12 oz (200-300 g), meaning that you get about 1-2 oz (30-45 g) of carbohydrates. Because potatoes are so delicious and go well with so many dishes (especially when you use a great sauce), it's difficult to give them up, and this is one exception that we make to our low-carb rules. But there are alternatives:

Pumpkin Croquettes with Mediterranean Tenderloin

My wife had the idea of making pumpkin for dinner tonight - "But not soup; that's too boring!" While brainstorming over breakfast, I realized that pumpkin could be used to make something like falafel. I also wanted to use a recent discovery of ours, coarsely-ground flaxseed flour. With this in mind, we went to the grocery store. There was a great selection of pumpkins. We decided on an especially aromatic variety. Then we went to the butcher's counter. I couldn't pass up the pork loin. We hadn't…


"Potato" Salad

"The fattest farmer eats the most potatoes." At least, that's how it went with the farmers of old. Since we didn't want to give up the wonderful Upper Hessian potato salad we grew up with, we've devised a tasty and very similar salad - with turnips! At this year's New Year's Eve party, we put a bowl of this salad on the buffet without saying anything. The experiment was a success. It was one of the only salads to be eaten up entirely (which speaks for itself). While we were eating some, a…


Savoy Cabbage Pie

Christmas is over and everyone is ready to go back to simple cooking, so today I want to introduce a cabbage pie. Actually it's a casserole, but for weeks I kept thinking about how to make a cabbage casserole that's both delicious and pleasing to the eye. It should be sliced like a pie, incorporate the pretty shape of a head of cabbage, and still be crisp and tasty. Nobody likes overcooked cabbage. Savoy Cabbage Pie to serve 4-6: 750 g_(1 1/2 pound)ground beef 1head of Savoy cabbage(approx.…


Celery Puree

A very simple substitute for potatoes in puree is celery. It requires much less peeling, because instead of peeling 5-6 potatoes you only have to discard the peel of one celery root. We cut the celery into cubes of the same size that we would cut potatoes and cook them in saltwater with a TL of fresh horseradish, which removes some of the bitter compounds. After 20-30 minutes the celery will be nice and soft. Then we drain the water (which I've used to make a great soup) and mash the celery into…


Potato Pancakes

One of the most exciting low-carb recipes is potato pancakes (also known as latkes). I had to give them up for a long time, since my wife didn't like them. When I read this recipe, I had to try it. Since then, I've been making them regularly. Once you've tasted them, you'll never want potato pancakes made from potatoes again. If you're not already skeptical_(and I was), the basis for our pancakes is sauerkraut. To serve 4: 500 g_(1 Pound)sauerkraut 1egg 1onion (medium-sized) 50 g_(2oz)gluten 1/2…
