Wingin’ It Suggestions and Prep Gallery
There’s nothing complicated technique-wise this week so just some fast ideas. The primary image reveals the quantity of leeks I used. They’ll range in measurement so this can be a good visible to assist information you. Moreover, leeks are a ache in the butt to shred by hand, which is what I did. You’ll seemingly find yourself with some waste that doesn’t get shredded. Should you’re utilizing a meals processor, you would possibly need to use 3-3.5 leeks slightly than 4.
The following image is the mixing bowl with the liquid squeezed from the potato/leek combination. It seems to be fairly gross. The GIF is me pouring out the liquid. The sludge at the backside is potato starch, which may also help bind and enhance how these cook dinner.
In terms of cooking I aimed for a darkish brown. This isn’t fairly burnt, but it surely’s flirting with it. At this stage, the exterior can “shatter” once you chunk, form of like additional crispy bacon. You possibly can definitely goal for a lighter shade based mostly on desire.
