Leek Patties (keftes De Prassa)From improvisingfood 4 years ago
- 7-8 leeks, white part only (about 2 pounds) shopping list
- 1 pound ground beef (I use 90/10) shopping list
- 2 eggs shopping list
- 3/4 cup old fashion oatmeal shopping list
- 2 boiled and mashed white potatoes shopping list
- 1/2 tablespoon black pepper shopping list
- 1 tablespoon salt shopping list
- 6 tablespoons olive oil shopping list
- 1/2 cup fresh chopped dill shopping list
How to make it
- Separate the white leek from the green part, wash well (sand is hiding between the leaves) and chop it. Add to a pot with water and boil for about 15 minutes until soft.
- Let the leek cool under running water and squeeze out all the remaining water with your hands. Repeat 2-3 times until it’s relatively dry.
- In a bowl, mix all the ingredients with your hands. Create the patty shape and have them ready in advanced, it will be much easier that way. Warm 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a nonstick pan and add the patties. Fry them for 5 minutes on each side or until they are golden-brown and ready. See Photo
- I like to have a yogurt dip with the leek patties so I mixed Kefir, some salt and chopped dill together and that’s it.
- The patties (also called Keftes de Prassa) become so soft and moist, with a hint of onion flavor. Half of the portion got eaten as I was cooking it, and the rest was eaten cold the following day. Enjoy.
