Very nutritious vegetable dish. Combine different vegetables for a different result.
And add more colour by adding more carrots or turnip or celery.
Serve with a side dish with meat or fish. Or as vegetable porridge.
Serve with sour cream or butter. And drink some sour milk, as Estonians usually do 🙂
Did you know?
Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3, the bacteria discovered in 1995 by the University of Tartu research teams, led by professors Marika Mikelsaar and Mihkel Zilmer, are unique in the world because of their combination of antimicrobial and antioxidative effects. They protect human health by attacking harmful microbes and contributing to physical well-being. The ME-3 can rightfully be called the first Estonian probiotic lactic acid bacteria and the EU patent permits it to be used in the food industry in 15 European countries.

Estonians are the singing nation. We regained independence without any bloodshed only by singing…
The Singing Revolution lasted over 4 years and In 1990 Estonians promised to eat even potato peelings in name of independent state.
In order to handle the deficit, in 1990 the government established a rationing system. This meant that for buying a product in a shop one had to produce not just a bank-note – the rouble – but also a special coupon. The coupon was actually a simple piece of paper cut out from a printed A4 sheet. These coupons were distributed to households according to the number of family members.
1991, 20th of august we got freedom and independent state. Few months later were stores full of different goods and food. Would be only money for that 🙂
But, we still like potato skins, because of delicious taste 🙂
Celebrate with us 🙂
