Dairy-free, oil-free, quick to make, no fuss, kid-friendly, snack. Tricks to introduce veggies into the meals. Rosti usually has egg for binding, but even without the egg the rosti binds together as the starch from the potatoes start cooking. Beetroot gives the sweet tinge and the aroma of cooked potatoes has kids asking for more.
