For a kidney-friendly treat, follow us to the Middle East and sample some Kotlets, or meat and potato patties Persian style. This savory recipe was taken from “Persian Cuisine” by Nadia Shahram, and then carefully adapted for people following the renal diet by Zohreh, a Davita dietitian from California. The ground meat is high in lean protein and pre-soaking the potatoes lowers the potassium level. Zohreh flavors the patties with turmeric, basil and garlic, and Mrs. Dash ® Original herbal seasoning, which is sodium and potassium-free. Whether you make a meal of the Kotlets or serve them as tasty little appetizers, we're pretty sure you'll love them. We do.
