  • 8 potatoes peeled
  • ½ white onion food processed or grated
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Avocado oil for cooking


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 avocados
  • Vegan Sour Cream or ketchup


  • In a food processor, process your peeled potatoes and onion until they’re grated. You may also grate using a box grater but it will take longer.
  • Pour grated potatoes and onions into a clean tea towel and wring out the liquids until mostly dry. Pour into a large mixing bowl and add salt, black pepper, dried parsley, and garlic powder and mix well. Flatter your batter and divide equally into four portions.
  • Into a non-stick pan over medium high heat, add avocado oil. Once hot enough, add your portioned batter to the pan and flatten with a spatula. Fry until crispy golden brown and cover with a lid to quicken cooking process, usually about 7-8 minutes. Flip and fry on the other side.
  • Meanwhile, fry your eggs sunny side up and slice your avocado. Serve over top of hot rosti with vegan sour cream or ketchup. Enjoy!
