5-ingredient Sweet Potato Latkes – a healthier take on the traditional deep fried potato pancakes, these are lightly pan fried in a small amount of olive oil, made with sweet potatoes instead of white and made EASY by using a spiralizer because it eliminates the need to grate the potatoes, which can take a lot of time.
1large(11 oz peeled sweet potato, peeled)
1/2tspkosher salt and fresh black pepper to taste
Cut the sweet potato in half so it fits easily into the spiralizer.
Spiralize with the smaller noodle blade of the spiralizer. Cut into smaller pieces, about 5 inches long.
Mix together the sweet potatoes, scallions, eggs, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mix well to combine.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. When hot add 1 teaspoon of oil and swirl around the pan.
Using a fork, grab some of the sweet potato mixture (roughly 1/3 cup), and gently place it in the skillet lightly pressing down with the fork. You can fit 4 on the skillet.
Cook until golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes then flip with a spatula. Use the spatula to press them down to flatten and cook until golden, about 3 more minutes.
