No one wants to try this because it sounds awful, but I love it.



In a pan, fry with peanut oil some slivers of potatoes and fresh / frozen spinach in equal parts. Once they're about half done frying, add in some unsalted peanuts. When the whole mess is nice and crispy, dump it onto a plate. Spray it with lots of ketchup (yay salt and HFCS!) and enjoy!



I love it but can't convince any of my veg friends to try. :P

I'd try it up until the peanuts part. Sounds like it'd be great with a handful of chopped dill and some sea salt.

Organic ketchup does not have high fructose corn syrup, by the way.

I'm not down with peanuts either, but I don't think it sounds weird. It's sounds kinda like Indian food.

Mmmm, I'm going to buy some spinach tomorrow or so and try it. Maybe without the red blanket, first. I think even my veggie hater son might want some.



BTW, that is one of the cutest dogs I have ever seen.

true... it does sound like indian food (was just thinkin' that)! its also quite like 'bubble and squeak' but with a twist, too!



... you could change it up a bit too if you wanted- add a little fried onion (maybe some garam masala, garlic and ginger too), chop your nuts smaller, mash/mix everything up, make into little patties/cutlets/balls before frying em..... then dunk in some ketchup... loads of variations of mmmmmmm!

Good ideas! Sometimes I mix in half a can of coconut juice, a bunch of curry and salt, some garam masala and by then I realize it's no longer ghetto!



Veggily, Lyla did an escape artist trick last night. It was scary! :O

This doesn't sound bad at all! I love spinach and potatoes! I like peanuts too. I dunno about ketchup though... I've never cared for that in general, and seldom even have ketchup when I order french fries at a restaurant.



ETA: Soy 6-Pack- your avatar is dangerously, toxically cute.

Wow! It came out better than I expected - quite yummy indeed. I split my serving in two and put ketchup on one part. I liked the portion without a bit more, but the ketchup gave it a totally different flavor and was pretty good too.



I'm glad Lyla came back. I guess she had more fun on her adventure than you did. ;-)Those mischievous dogs!

you probably could. wilt the spinach by massaging it with salt, put some turnips in the dehydrator until they soften, then mix with some cold pressed oil and raw peanuts. i've made some pretty good ketchup too by pureeing soaked sundried tomatoes and apple cider vinegar.

I made what I call "Not Quite Soy 6-Pack's Ghetto Vegan Spinach Tater Fry".



It has sweet potatoes, swiss chard, and valencia peanuts. I even tried it with ketchup! Not bad at all!

Oh, I'm not saying don't post it here, but also post it there, there are plenty of vegetarians who might not check the vegan forum.
