Broccoli & Cheese Potato Pockets
4-5 medium potatoes
1 tbsp potato starch
3 tbsp tapioca flour (more if needed)
1 tsp dried oregano (optional)
1 tsp water (if needed)
1 large potato, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup steaming water or vegetable stock
1 ¼ cup broccoli, finely chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
Sea salt, to taste
In a large pot fitted with a steaming basket, add the potatoes and carrots. Add a few inches of water and steam until soft, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove and cool for 10-15 minutes, until cool enough to handle. Remove one potato and one carrot from the pot and set aside for the cheese sauce.
Place the remaining potatoes in a large, flat-bottomed bowl or pot and mash until they are broken down. Add the potato starch, tapioca flour and oregano and mash until the flour and starch are well combined. If the mixture is very dry, add a bit of warm water. If the mixture is very wet, add a bit more tapioca flour. The dough should be pliable and not stick to your fingers. Set aside while you make the filling.
Place the left-over potato and carrot in a small food processor or blender and add the turmeric, garlic powder, cayenne, lemon juice, sea salt, black pepper and water/vegetable stock. Blend until smooth. Add a bit more liquid if necessary, then set aside.
Steam the chopped broccoli until cooked. Remove and add to bowl. Add the lemon juice and season with sea salt.
To make the pockets, take a handful of the potato mixture and roll it into a ball. Flatten the sides out so that there is a cavity in the middle, then add a couple teaspoons of the cheese sauce and broccoli. Close the pocket gently and smooth out any creases. Repeat with remaining dough.
Add the pockets on a ceramic nonstick pan and cook for 5-10 minutes on either side, until browned and crispy. You can bake them in the oven at 350F for an additional 20 minutes if you want them even more crispy.
Makes 4-5 pockets
