Many people find that when they start low carbing the hardest thing to give up is potatoes, and especially the much loved rösti. This is a delicious alternative and can be enjoyed without any guilt. Delicious with tzatziki on the side!
Low carb courgette fritters
It is important to get most of the water out of the grated courgette, and then use lots of butter while frying on a medium heat for a long time to get a nice crispy surface. If you are in a hurry and don't want to fiddle with frying a number of fritters, just make one big patty in the frying pan. Fry until browned, place a plate over the frying pan and turn upside down to get the patty out, then slide back in the pan and fry the other side.
