Celery and potato hash browns with herbsPin

The celery potato rösti are close relatives of potato pancakes, potato pancakes or potato pancakes. I feel like they should all be given a lot more meaning. Because they are just as easy and quick to make as pancakes. But they are much healthier, filling and taste very tasty. I think they offer a lot more than simple pancakes because they are full of good ingredients. And one more advantage is that they are child-friendly and can be served as a healthy snack or for breakfast or brunch.

For this rösti version I used celery root, a little potato (for the umami effect), fresh herbs and garlic and onion for more flavor. There is also chickpea flour in it. This gives more flavor and means that the celery and potato hash browns can also be made without gluten. Like the classic Swiss rösti, they are crispy on the outside and hearty and soft on the inside. The “golden pancakes” can be served with applesauce or crème fraîche.

Test with the LeMax® electric grill for perfect celery and potato rösti

This recipe was spot on to mine LeMax® Elektrogrill to test. Perhaps you already know the ELAG glass ceramic hob, which can be used to grill indoors all year round. I already introduced you to this table grill when I made a delicious recipe for aubergines and halloumi grilled with bulgur and a grill pizza with the children. The electric grill is really the perfect indoor grill solution if you want to save time and also want to cook healthily. Because you need significantly less oil with the LeMax table grill than in the pan on the stove.

The big advantage of this recipe in particular is that you can prepare all the hash browns in one go. So you don’t need several pans or you have to laboriously make the vegetable potato pancakes one after the other and keep them warm in the oven until the rest is done. The glass surface of the LeMax is really big (1120cm²). And even with double the amount, it can be done quickly in two batches. So cook, serve and enjoy. And as I said, you need significantly less oil than in the pan. That also means less fat. All you have to do is coat the glass surface with a little oil and you’re ready to go. The electric grill heats up evenly to an unbelievable 380 ° in a few minutes. And yet almost nothing sticks. This is really low fat cooking.

This is how the LeMax electric grill is properly cleaned

First you scrape off the coarse pieces with the supplied scraper while the grill is still warm. Then you take a glass ceramic cleaner or just scouring milk and wipe the glass surface with a normal kitchen sponge (with the green side). And at the end you wipe it again with a kitchen cloth or kitchen paper. And the glass surface looks like new again. You don’t have to worry about scratches on the glass surface. The only thing you shouldn’t use the sponge is on the aluminum edge. After the first barbecue I thought, oh dear, how do I get this clean again. But that’s not a problem with the above procedure.

My experience with the LeMax electric grill

I’m just excited. The table grill is really a professional device for at home. I can use it to cook, stew, roast, bake and grill. And with it you can not only make the celery and potato hash browns, but also crêpes, vegetables, meat, egg dishes and pizza. Even steaks can be made at these high temperatures. The dishes also taste better and I only need a few drops of frying oil. I also think it’s great that the devices are made in Germany. As a Canadian, I also appreciate the German workmanship!

Celery and potato hash browns

Recipe for easy and quickly made celery and potato hash browns. For a delicious breakfast or brunch. Full of healthy ingredients and in no time at all on the table.

  • 250
    Peeled celery root
  • 100
    Peeled potatoes
  • 1
    Small yellow onion
  • 1
    Large clove of garlic,
  • 2
    Fresh flat leaf parsley,
    chopped up
  • 2
    Fresh dill,
    chopped up
  • 2
    Big eggs,
    easily beaten
  • 3
    Chickpea flour
    (or another flour)
  • Sea salt and pepper,
    to taste
  • Heat-resistant frying oil for coating the grill surface

To serve:

  • Crème fraîche or applesauce

  1. Use the large holes of a square grater or a food processor (with a grater attachment) to finely grate the celery root, the potatoes and the onion. Place the cut vegetables in a clean kitchen towel and wring out as much liquid as possible. Put the vegetables in a medium-sized bowl.

  2. Put the ingredients (garlic, herbs, flour and a generous pinch of salt and pepper) in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Add the eggs and stir again until everything is well mixed.

  3. Shape the celery and potato mix into balls and set aside on a cutting board.

  4. Heat the table grill (or a non-stick pan) to medium to high level (on level 9 for the LeMax Elektrogrill). Brush the grill with a little frying oil.

  5. Place the celery and potato balls on the preheated grill and press them gently onto the grill with a kitchen spatula so that they flatten out a little. Reduce the heat a little (to level 8 on the LeMax electric grill) and fry until the hash browns are golden brown and crispy (approx. 4-5 minutes per side).

  6. Serve the rösti hot with crème fraîche or applesauce (or both).

  7. Enjoy!

  • You can serve these celery and potato hash browns for breakfast with some smoked salmon or scrambled eggs. But they also go well with a light lunch with a simple salad (e.g. my red cabbage and rocket salad with a little olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice).
  • After grilling, you clean the electric grill as described in the text above.
