• 500g/16oz potatoes, peeled and grated
• 200g/7oz firm tofu, patted dry and crumbled into small pieces
• Handful of fresh spinach or rocket, roughly chopped (or use frozen, defrosted)
• 3 tbsp gram (chickpea) flour, mixed with 3 tbsp warm water in a small bowl
• 2 tbsp plain flour
• 1 tsp cumin or caraway seeds
• 2 tbsp vegetable oil
• 1-2 tsp salt
• 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1. Pat dry the tofu, before crumbling it into a mixing bowl with the grated potato.
2. Add the spinach or rocket, gram flour mixture, cumin, plain flour, salt and pepper and stir the ingredients.
3. Shape the mixture into 6 round rosti, be firm with it but try not to over handle. If it is too wet to hold its shape, add a little more flour.
4. Add a little oil to a large, non-stick frying pan and fry on a medium heat, turning half way through, until golden. Press down the rosti and encourage them to keep their shape using a fish slice.
5. Serve with a small side salad or leaves and tomatoes and a tablespoon of hummus.
You may have seen our exposé on a pig farm supplying Morrisons. Now, we have incredible news. The Estate where it is located – DIRECTLY DUE TO OUR INVESTIGATION – are planning to “get the buildings vacated in the quickest time possible”. We have also been informed by locals that there are plans to demolish the farm. This exposé was funded by you – our supporters!
