Easy no-salt potato-jalapeno pancakes

Hi readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.

I gather some of you besides me count sodium mgs in your diet the way overweight people used to count calories.  If so, and if you’re on the lookout for a tasty treat you’ve probably never encountered before you might try this.

Blend or process a potato, a jalapeno, half an onion, a tablespoon of minced garlic and a teaspoon of grated ginger together until they reach the color of guacamole and the consistency of pancake batter.  [Works well without the ginger, too, whole different culinary experience.  I’m betting cinnamon could fit into it somewhere, to doctor it up into a mutation worthy of a space alien.]

[Edit:  Cilantro.  I forgot to mention adding some chopped up fresh cilantro.  Important, too]

Pour the mix into a sizzling pan of olive oil or butter and flip them a couple of times as they cook until they’re brown on both sides.

Pop those moneymakers into a dish and eat them like pancakes, or let them cool and eat them the way you’d have a bagel or donut.  Great under blackstrap molasses and buttered, great dry.  Name your own poison

Remember where you heard it first.

  1. Sounds like something worthy of a serious try. I think I will use a milder chili than jalapeno. Thanks. Hope your having a great day. Blessings, Mary

    • Hi Mary: Ancho works well, though I’ve only used it as a molido in this concoction. Got a feeling anaheims or poblamos would be good. Gracias, J

      • You got me there, Jules. I don’t know what Ancho is or molido. Anaheims can be very mild to hot with no way to tell until you bite into them. Not familiar with poblamos, although the spelling makes me think of problems. Blessings, M.

        • Mary: Ancho’s good chili ….mildly hotter than bell pepper, distinctive flavor. Ancho is to the chilie genre what Lapsong Suchon is to teas. Molido’s just dried and ground. J

  2. I’ll certainly prepare a batch of these to try.

  3. Thank you. Sounds like a chili I would enjoy. I will need to find some. M.
