Sweet Potato Latkes (Sweet Potato Pancakes)

Shredded sweet potatoes stand in for russets in this version of potato pancakes, and puréed sweet potatoes replace eggs to make the recipe vegan. Starchy, dry-fleshed sweet potatoes, such as Okinawan or boniato, work best. If you use a moist, extra-sweet type, such as Beauregard or garnet, keep a close eye on the latkes while they cook—the potatoes’ high sugar content may make the latkes burn if they’re cooked just a moment too long. Serve with Vanilla Applesauce and vegan sour cream.
