4 large red potatoes, peeled
1 small head of broccoli, florets removed and chopped small
1 medium size onion, diced
3 or more cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 of a red bell pepper, diced
1 cup shredded carrots
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped(optional)
Red pepper flakes (optional)
Salt & pepper
About 1/2 cup of garbanzo flour
Oil for frying
Start out by cooking your veggies in a pan with a very small amount of oil on medium heat until they are softened. Set aside.
Grate your peeled potatoes with a cheese grater or a food processor. Squeeze out any excess liquid immediately.
Mix the vegetables and spices of choice with the shredded potatoes. Add about half a cup of garbanzo flour and form into patties with your hands. If mixture does not hold together fairly well, add some more flour. Warm a skillet on medium heat and add enough oil to just cover the bottom of the pan. Place your patties in the pan and use a spatula to flatten them slightly. Fry your pancakes for about 5 minutes on each side. They should turn a nice golden color. Serve with ketchup, chili sauce, or apple sauce.
