Crispy and delicious- these are super easy to make. Use a food processor with a shredding blade for quick shred of the potatoes. You can add spices to the mix, also. Chili powder is especially delicious!
Grapeseed oil is perfect for frying these. You can strain the oil and keep for another fry- I use my oil 3-4 times. Be sure to dispose of the oil in a proper manner when you do need to toss it.
Sweet Potato Latkes
Makes 5-6 servings
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
2 scallions, very finely chopped
1/3 cup sprouted wheat flour
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup grape seed oil
Stir together potatoes, scallions, flour, eggs, salt, and pepper.
Heat oil in a deep 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches of 4, spoon 1/8 cup potato mixture per latke into oil and flatten to 3-inch diameter with a slotted spatula. Reduce heat to moderate and cook until golden, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer latkes with spatula to paper towels to drain.
