Sahnelauch, Champignons, Kartoffel Steckrüben Puffer #vegetarian

One week without cooking leaves a lot from the veggie box in the fridge. That’s what I found and what inspired me.

Potato swede puffers, cream leek and mushrooms.

The puffers or fritters are called Rievkooche in Cologne and are normally fried and served with applesauce. In other parts of Germany they are called either Reibekuchen, Reiberdatschi (Bavaria) or Kartoffelpuffer.

If you cook the potatoes before you will have the Swiss version Rösti.
