Today I have a really tasty recipe for you. These potato pancakes are flavoured with rosemary and are served with good-for-you fermented foods sauerkraut and sour cream. This recipe was inspired by Naturopath Helen Padarin. Helen advocates eating fermented veggies for good health. She even wrote a guest post here at, all about fermented foods and how you can make your own, (so make sure to have a good read of her post)! To find out more about Helen and the work she does visit her website Nourish-ed and the Nourish-ed Facebook Page.

I hope you enjoy my recipe and get inspired to make some fermented veggies!


Rosemary Potato Pancakes with Sour Cream and Sauerkraut

Serves: 3 (3 pancakes each)


  • 3 potatoes (I used Nicola potatoes), washed and grated
  • a spring of fresh rosemary, chopped finely
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • flour (almond, buckwheat, spelt and wholemeal flour work well)
  • coconut oil, to cook with

to serve: sauerkraut and sour cream

How to:

  1. Wash your potatoes to remove any excess dirt. Peel and then grate the potato into shreds. Squeeze the potatoes over a sink to remove excess water. Place the shredded and dried potatoes in a bowl and stir in the rosemary, salt and pepper.
  2. Stir in the beaten whole egg.
  3. Add enough flour so you can form pancakes with the potatoes (I used around ~3 tablespoons- it all depends on how much moisture is in the potatoes, the more moisture you need, the more flour you will need).
  4. Heat the oil in the pan. Form flat pancakes and cook in the oil till crispy and cooked inside (test just by trying one- if the potato tastes cooked in the middle- it’s done!).
  5. Serve with sauerkraut and sour cream.
