Sweet Potato Pancakes

Early TED

One word:

YUMMY! My husband discovered this recipe in the Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen and surprised me with it for supper. He made enough for the whole family, and again I'll say it's such a treat to be able to eat together! He told me that his plan is to try and help me make a meal for supper every night that we can all eat together. They might be able to add in some dairy or tofu to their meal which I of course can't have, but I'm thrilled at the effort and thought he is putting in to helping me eat this crazy diet. He's a wonderful man, I'm so lucky! Ok, back to the recipe. You have GOT to try, it was so, so, so good. Abigail was sneaking them off the plate as soon as hubby was taking them off the skillet.

4 cups (packed) of coarsely grated sweet potatoes or yams. (approximately 1 large or 2 medium). Utilize your food processor if you have one...made the process much faster!
1/2 cup grated onion
1 tsp. salt
4 EnerG egg replacer equivalents (don't forget the water to "make" the eggs)
1/3 cup GF flour of choice (rice, quinoa, millet or a GF baking flour blend)
olive oil for frying

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet until it is very hot. It should sizzle a fleck of batter upon contact.

Use a non-slotted spoon to form thin pancakes, patting the batter down. Fry on both sides until brown, adding small amounts of additional oil, if/as needed.

I ate mine with a small amount of ketchup, but honestly they were so flavorful that they were awesome plain. The remainder of my meal was composed of 1/2 an avocado, several black olives and some gorgeous green broccoli. It was a great meal :-)

There were a number of other recipes in the Moosewood cookbook that I look forward to modifying, testing and posting. Anything new is so exciting!
