Potato Pancakes
from Robert and Gina Fraser - Perth, Western Australia

  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 2 small onions, finely chopped
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1 cup wheatgerm
  • Half cup soya flour
  • 2-3 tbsp wholemeal flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Soy milk
Grate potatoes (uncooked) in a shredder.
Mix grated potatoes and other ingredients together in a large bowl.
Add extra soya flour if needed to make the mixture firmer, then shape into patties about 1.5cm thick.
Bake at 375*F for 15 20 minutes or fry until golden brown.

Delicious with a salad.
As an alternative, fried pumpkin fritters are a delicious modification, and can often tempt a child to eat the much underestimated pumpkin!
Simply exchange the grated raw potato for a similar quantity of mashed, cooked pumpkin.
Prepare and serve in the same way.
