Easy Sweet Potato Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients

 1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated
 
 1 small onion, peeled and grated
 
 1 tbsp chives, finely chopped
 
 1 jalapeno, de-seeded and minced
 
 2 tbsp all purpose flour
 
 1 tsp salt
 
 ½ tsp cumin
 
 ¼ tsp cayenne
 
 1 large egg
 
 vegetable oil
 
 1 tsp lemon zest

Directions

1

grate the peeled potato and onion into a medium bowl

2

transfer to a strainer and press out liquid (this is important or they will not hold together)

3

return to the original bowl

4

add jalapeno and chives

5

in a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, cumin and cayenne

6

add this to the sweet potato and onion

7

add egg and lemon zest, mix thoroughly

8

in a pan or skillet, add enough oil to prevent the pancakes from sticking (we used an oil spritzer)

9

place on medium heat

10

using an ice cream scoop (or 3 tbsp), scoop out potato mixture and flatten each one. The smaller the pancakes (about 2”in diameter), the faster and more evenly they will cook

11

place in a pan over medium heat and add 3 or 4 more to cook all together

12

cook 5 minutes or until they turn crisp and brown on the bottom

13

flip to cook on both sides, 3 or 4 more minutes
