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.

These vegan sweet potato latkes are full of the natural sweet potato flavor and onion adds just a touch of bite to them. There's no egg holding these together. Mashed sweet potato and flour do that. Once fried, there is a slight crunch on the outside and like a hash brown inside. They're delicious even if you're not following a plant-based diet. If you're vegan, serve with a little applesauce on the side. If not vegan, then sour cream would be delish. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
