When I was a child my mum used to cook râpées which are a bit like potato galettes – I tried my own version this week replacing the potatoes by swede and adding cheese and mustard. You can replace the potatoes by any root vegetables I guess, I loved them so much that I am sharing it with you here.
2 to 3 tablespoons of flour
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 to 3 tablespoons of grated cheese either french Emmental, Cheddar (if you have to) or even Parmesan.
Get a large bowl, grate the root vegetable of choice, mix in the rest until you have a nice mixture not too pasty not too runny, I cooked mine straight on the Aga but the alternative will be to use a non sticky pan, wipe it with a bit of olive oil and add a small ladle of the mixture on medium heat. Wait a few minutes and turn it, cook it until both sides are golden and enjoy…
They are also great eaten cold as a snack.
