    You might think that only deep-frying could make potatoes truly crispy, but we are happy to prove you wrong. These crunchy potato cakes, lightly glazed with fragrant Parmesan cheese, require just 2 teaspoons of oil!

    Serves: 4 

    • 750 g all-purpose potatoes, unpeeled
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 3/4 teaspoon rosemary, finely chopped
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

    1. Preheat the oven to 240°C. Spray 2 large baking trays lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Grate the potatoes in a food processor or with a grater. Transfer the potato to a large bowl. Add the olive oil, chopped rosemary and pepper. Toss the mixture well to coat.
    2. Divide the potato mixture into 8 equal portions and spread out 4 large rounds, each about 5 mm thick, on each baking tray. Bake the potatoes for 20 minutes in the oven.
    3. Preheat the grill. Remove the potatoes from the oven. With a spatula, carefully turn the potatoes over on the baking trays. Sprinkle them with Parmesan cheese. Grill the potatoes about 8 cm from the heat until the tops are golden-brown and the potatoes are cooked through, about 3 minutes. Serve hot.


    Rosemary is rich in flavonoids, which are phytochemicals that may help prevent blood clots.


    You can cook the potatoes ahead up to step 2 and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. At serving time, preheat the grill, sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the potatoes, and grill until golden-brown.
