Llapingachos (Ecuadorian Potato Cakes)
                con Royal Curtido y Porcini y huevos

ingredients:

4-5 potatoes
(russets work best-- if you are using yukon golds, add 1 cup masa to batter)

1 egg

1/2 cup cheese, shredded (queso fresco, mozzarella, or gouda)

 

for sofrito:

3 onions, diced

3 tsp. achiote or annatto

3 tsp. cumin/cumin seeds

5 cloves garlic, sliced

salt and pepper, to taste

oil or butter for sautéing and sizzlin'

Royal Curtido, for topping

 

2 Gnomestead Hollow Dried Porcini Mushrooms

(soak in water for at least 30 minutes, drain and reserve soaking water for soups, broths, etc. and fry up the Porcini with a good amount of butter/oil, garlic, salt, pepper...BAM!)

 

(optional) green onions, cilantro, for topping

(optional) refried beans, for side dish

(optional) fried eggs, for side dish

to create:

1. Cut potatoes into chunks and boil until soft all the way through.

2. Remove skins from potatoes.

3. In a hot skillet, sauté onions, salt and garlic in butter/oil for 5 minutes.

4. When onions are translucent, add annatto and cumin. Sautee for 5 more minutes.

5. If you want smooth pancakes, blend onion mixture in a food processor. If you want them chunky, your sofrito is ready-to-go! Reserve some for topping.

6. Mash potatoes, incorporating sofrito and cheese as you go.

7. Get a hot, well-seasoned skillet or griddle ready with butter or oil. It'll be ready for the batter when you sprinkle water on it and the water pops and vanishes!

8. Spoon batter in lil piles onto the griddle/skillet. Spread it out evenly to form little pancakes--you can choose the size of your cakes this way--I made small llapingachos, so that I could serve them as finger food. In my opinion, it's more fun that way, but you can make them bigger for a more substantial bite.

9. Let them "fry" for at least 5 minutes before you flip them. Patience is key. They should be cooked well enough so that they are easy to flip. Flip!

10. Repeat with all of the batter. 

11. Fry up some eggs, add Porcini mushrooms, sprinkle with Royal Curtido, spread remaining sofrito (onion mixture) on top, sprinkle with green onions and cilantro, add refried beans....dinner is served!
