Sweet Potato & Apple Latkes

Updated: Jun 7, 2018

Sweet Potato Apple Latkes

Straight from Spice & Sprout | Time: About 20 min | Makes 8-10 Latkes

Sweet Potato + Apple Latkes

1 lg #SweetPotato, peeled

1 #apple, peeled and quartered

1/2 onion, diced

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp arrowroot powder (I used gluten-free starch)

2 tbsp spelt flour (I used oat flour)

1 tbsp EVO

1 tsp turmeric

pepper to taste

Tahini Lemon Drizzle

3 tbsp tahini

juice of one lemon

1 tbsp honey (I used agave)

water as needed to thin sauce

squirt of sriracha


Combine all of the ingredients for the tahini lemon sauce in a bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

Grate the sweet potato and the apple into a large mixing bowl. Squeeze as much liquid out of the grated sweet potato and apple as possible and transfer the squeezed mixture into a clean bowl. Add the onion, salt, arrowroot, spelt flour, olive oil, turmeric, and pepper. Mix to combine.

Heat a cast iron pan (or other skillet) over medium – high heat. Add apprx. 2 tbsp olive oil. When the pan is hot take a handful (about 1/4 cup) of the latke batter and squeeze it together into a flatish round patty. Place it on the hot pan and press down on it with a spatula. Cook for 2 – 4 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a plate or wire rack covered in paper towel to cool. Repeat until all of the latkes are cooked (you can place the cooked ones in the oven at 200 to keep them warm while cooking). Serve hot with plenty of sauce!
