Recipe: Sweet Potato Latkes

Print Friendly

For the week of Chanukah, I wanted to share my Vegan, Gluten Free, Sweet Potato Latkes, in time for you to make them! One of the great things about my Sweet Potato Latkes Recipe is that they taste just as good baked, instead of fried!

I hope you enjoy these recipes! Please send me a comment at the bottom of the page, and let me know how you like them.

Recipe: Sweet Potato Latkes
Author: 
Recipe type: Appetizer
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup Besan (chick pea flour) or other gluten free flour
  • ¼ t. baking soda
  • 5 Tbs cold water
  • 1 small onion, cut into slivers
  • 1 potato, grated and water squeezed out
  • 1 sweet potato, grated
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. chopped parsley (optional)
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. In large bowl, make a batter with the chick pea flour, baking soda and water. Then add the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Drop by spoonfuls into deep fryer or skillet with hot oil. When brown, remove and drain (I usually try one first, to adjust spices to taste).
  3. This recipe also does well with baking: Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray with oil. Drop spoonfuls of potato mixture onto sheet 2 inches apart. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Turn over and bake for 5 more minutes or until golden brown.
