Sweet Potato Latkes
Sweet potato latkes and ruby applesauce.
Oy, how I love them. What's not to love? You have my favorite comfort food- potatoes. You have olive oil. And with a little bit of elbow grease (grating said potatoes) you have crispy tender goodness. You don't have to be Jewish to love the pure genius of latkes. You can be Half-Jewess, like yours truly, or even Honorary Jewish like Diane Keaton seems to be, slipping in Bubbe and schmata in casual conversation. They say on St. Patrick's Day that everyone is Irish. Maybe during Hanukkah, everyone is Jewish? Well, maybe except that nudnik Mel Gibson.
|Serve the latkes with my ruby applesauce.|
1 lb. sweet potatoes (for me- this was two large sweet potatoes)
1/2 cup sorghum or brown rice flour
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon curry or use ginger if you prefer
1/2 teaspoon red or black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup sweet potato puree
1/3 to 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk, as needed
2 teaspoons raw agave nectar or honey
Light olive oil, for frying
Peel and grate the sweet potatoes. Set aside.
