Vegetable Cutlet With Mash And Tomato Sauce

This is an interesting dish that you can make even more interesting by adding your own touch. As you will see from the photos left to right, you precook and dice vegetable like carrots, parsnips, white turnips and potatoes making sure to keep them al dente. Then you sauté some chopped onions and add a little diced zucchini to it along with some chopped garlic and seasoning. Add this to the mix. Make a little mashed potato and add this and combine the whole thing with your hand or a spoon. Correct the seasoning. Add a little potato flour or corn starch to dry it a little and fold it onto a clean smooth surface. Put into the refrigerator for a half an hour to cool everything down.
When the mix is manageble knead it a little and shape the cutlets and then fry them in olive oil.
You have to make sure that the mix is dry enough so that it will hold during the cooking. Be sure to use a wide spatula to turn it. It is always a good idea to take a little of the mix and fry it to test for both texture and seasoning before you do the final one.
If the mix is not dry enough or doesn’t hold just add a little more corn starch or potato flour.
Serve it with the sauce of your choice. Tomato sauce is good because if you don’t have time to make a sauce you can just buy some and add a little garlic and basil.
