Try this free Spinach Rösti Recipe for a delicious alternative to the Basic Potato Rösti. Although basic Rösti consists of nothing but potato you can add ingredients such as onions, cheese, spinach, zucchini’s, apples or fresh herbs. The grated vegetables are shaped into balls or patties and are most often pan fried, but can also be baked in the oven for a reduced fat cooking method.


100g baby spinach leaves, finely chopped
200g potatoes, peeled & grated
200g baby marrow’s/zucchini, grated
80ml cake flour
100ml grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, whisked
salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
60ml oil
extra grated Parmesan to garnish

  • In a large mixing bowl mix the spinach, potatoes and baby marrow’s together.
  • Stir in the flour, Parmesan cheese and egg until well combined.
  • Season the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Heat a little oil in a frying pan and drop dollops of the mixture into the pan and fry until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Place the cooked Rösti’s on paper towels to absorb the extra oil, keep warm while you cook the rest of the mixture.
  • Sprinkle the Rösti’s with a little Parmesan cheese or top with a fried or poached egg and some button mushrooms lightly fried or grilled with a little butter.
Interesting fact: Rösti was originally a common breakfast eaten by farmers in the canton of Bern all over Switzerland, today is is eaten all over the world.

Serves 2 – 4
