els’s flapjes



els was the queen of flapjes, among other things. that’s why i made them for her funeral. they are so very tasty. especially with homemade chutney. yesterday i made another batch here. i thought i would share the recipe with you. for those who can read dutch, you can just click on the picture. and here comes the english version:

1.grate one big squash (variations can be made from leek, sweet potato or basically any veggie you’d like) and let it drain for a while. before starting to mix it with the rest of the ingredients, make sure to press out the left over liquids.

2. mix the squash with 2 eggs, 4-5 tablespoons of flour, grated goats cheese (or any leftover cheese you might have laying around), salt, pepper and fresh parsley. i also like to add sundried tomatoes. mix and stir for at least 3 minutes. do not add any liquid, the squash will give away enough on its own while mixing.

3. after the mixing, let the batter stand for at least half an hour. fry 3/4 of a tablespoon as one ‘flapje’, make sure to press them down on both sides while frying to flatten them.

i like to eat them the most when they are cold and to dip them in chutney or some sort of yoghurt dip. perfect to put in the freezer and defrost just before a dinner. and they taste even better the day after! smakelijk eten!

i haven´t cooked for a time, which is kind of weird, normally i like cooking a lot.. but these flapjes started to interest me now.
i could imagine to invite friends and make a lot of them.
i love goat cheese, yammy..

sounds delicious!
I could use Outis words:
I'am not cooking for a while, which is not normal for me... and about the friends: I really love invating friends for dinner as well.

easy and delicous recipes are always very welcome!

lief, wat zijn smullen? kus

yaelian, lekker lekker! pröva!

annika, mmm...

outi, me neither, cause i am so little at home. and you are busy aswell. but it gives me so much peace to cook. these are perfect to snack with friends over a glass of beer-wine...

schanett, these are really worth while making. the woman that taught me how to make them was the master of amazing dinners. they would last for hours. such tasty food, and such lovely company. ♥
