KROPPKAKOR – Swedish Potato Dumplings (Gluten Free Vegan)

“Kroppkakor” or potato dumplings is a very traditional Swedish dish. Our potato dumplings are filled with pea mince, the dough is made of potato and quinoa. So it is gluten free. It is not boiled twice as the regular version one is. Just because potatoes tend to form mucus when boiled long enough, also boiling twice completely destroys its nutritional value. Served with chanterelle flavoured oat cream, sautéd dinosaur kale, chanterelles and lingonberries.

Time – 1 hour
Serves – 6 person
