sweet potato latkes with dill sour cream


Again apologies for the crap pic, I really need to sort out lighting in my flat. Ok this recipe is really super easy.

1x large sweet potato
1x tbsp olive oil
1 x tbsp flour
salt and pepper
0live oil for shallow frying

If you don’t have a food processor get one. I got mine for $50 on ebay and its changed my entire existence in the kitchen. I shredded the sweet potato finely, added the flour/oil/salt and pepper and mix well. The mixture should be wet enough to mould into patties and press down firmly into a heavy bottom pan with a thin layer of hot olive oil (make sure the oil is HOT!). Don’t flip until very very brown! They are hard to keep together, but add a bit more flour if you think you need it to the mixture. Drain on paper towel.

Sprinkle sea salt and pepper on them and serve with a dollop of dill tofu sour cream.


  1. Yum! Do they crisp up like ordinary potatoes?

  2. yep! they're essentially a sweet potato hash brown, just have to make sure the oil is really really hot before starting to cook them

  3. ooo i am a latke lover. my favourite are beetroot
