INDIANAPOLIS (WISH TV)
4 cups chopped cabbage
8 baby red potatoes with skin
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tbs. ground flax seed
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
2 tbs. olive oil for frying
Wash the potatoes thoroughly. Boil Baby Red or Yukon potatoes till fork tender. If they are full size potatoes, cut them up for quicker cooking time. It takes less energy.
Mash them, but not all the way. Chunks are good.
Mix the cabbage, onions, flax and seasonings into the lightly smashed potatoes; mix well.
Over medium high heat, put oil in a sauté pan. When it gets warm add tablespoons of the mixture to the pan and shape them into pancake size patties. Flatten it with your spatula.
When the pancake is golden brown on one side flip it over and continue till nice and brown. If you need to turn down the fire, that's cool. Slower is better.
Serving suggestions: - Top with plain organic yogurt instead of gravy or sour cream. - Top with chopped green onions.
