Potato Latkes with Cashew Cauliflower Cream

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 small – medium sweet potatoes – I mix with Japanese purple potatoes, peeled if preferred
  • 1/2 medium red onion
  • 3/4 tsp Himalayan or Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, divided
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 3 tbsp chickpea flour – can substitute potato starch if desired
  • Special Blends to Try + Add for flavor: dill, scallions, mustard to taste, garam masala, turmeric and cinnamon blend.
  • 3 tsp organic olive oil to pan toast

DIRECTIONS

  1. Shred or grate your potatoes and onion. I use a hand grater for the potatoes and processor for sweet potatoes, you can also use a spiralizer. Add to a bowl, add a pinch of salt and mix. Then use paper towels to wrap the mixture and squeeze to remove the excess moisture.
  2. Add salt, 1/3 tsp black pepper, cayenne, and flour to the potatoes and mix in. The potatoes don’t need much binding as they will cook and stick.
  3. Heat a cast iron or heavy bottom skillet over medium heat. Brush oil. Place spoonfuls of the mixture and press lightly and spread.
  4. Cook over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes per side. If the potatoes are browning too quickly, reduce the heat a bit.
  5. Garnish with black pepper, salt, pepper flakes. Serve warm with my cauliflower cream or apple sauce or even sauerkraut!
