What’s For Dinner? Sweet Potato Latkes

Oh how I love these tasty little latkes!
They are a great side dish with prime rib or steak…
add a little dollop of sour cream…heaven!

 

 

Worth the effort.  Healthy.  Delish!
My kind of food!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb sweet potato or yam, peeled & grated
  • 1 onion, grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp curry (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Combine the grated sweet potato, grated onion, and lemon juice. Put the mixture into a towel and squeeze out all the moisture.
  2. Then put it all into a bowl and add the eggs, green onions, flour and spices. Combine.
  3. There are 2 ways you can cook these:
  4. You can cook them in a frying pan, using 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying OR
  5. We like to use a pancake griddle, and lightly spray it with Pam. Uses a fraction of the oil, and works just as well!
  6. Now it's time to cook them:
  7. Just scoop large spoonfuls of mix, and flatten them with a spatula.
  8. Fry for about 2-3 minutes per side.
  9. If you want to make the whole batch up at the same time, put the cooked latkes in a 300 degree oven until dinner time!

Notes

Don't make the latkes too big, or they won't cook properly.

My family loves latkes, but we haven't tried it with sweet potatoes. (Why? I have no idea.) Thanks for sharing! I saw your post on Not Just a Housewife's "Show Me What You Got" and am now following your blog.

  • Reply Michelle @ On and Off My Plate March 3, 2011 at 9:18 PM Lovely...I so enjoy sweet potatoes but get tired of making them the same way each week. This will twist things up!
  • Reply Mrs. Taylor March 3, 2011 at 9:33 PM I'm one of thos weird people who usually steers clear of sweet potatoes...I have no excuses, I know. I WANT to eat them because they are good for you. I may just have to try this recipe and see if it doesn't cure my aversion to sweet potatoes.
