Sweet Potato Pancakes

Feta and sweet potato pair beautifully in this dinnertime pancake recipe, which is the ultimate marriage of sweet and savory. The best part? You don't even need to roast the sweet potatoes, you just grate them right into a bowl and mix them up with the other ingredients. These pancakes taste great with some thick Greek yogurt.

About 4-5 small pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized sweet potato, peeled or unpeeled, grated with a hand grater or food processor
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup flour (whole-wheat or white)
  • 2-3 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds (optional)

Directions

Place the first 6 ingredients in a bowl and blend with a fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat until very hot (if you drop a dollop of batter it should immediately start sizzling).

Add batter by the spoonfuls without crowding the pan. Mold them into a pancake shape with the back of a spoon. Cook until both sides are browned, about 2 minutes per side. Add more oil if necessary.

Sprinkle the pumpkin seeds on top, if using, and serve with sour cream, yogurt, or applesauce, if desired.

Sweet Potato Shopping Tip

Only buy potatoes that are firm, intact, and without any sprouts or green parts.

Sweet Potato Cooking Tip

Potatoes oxidize quickly; have a bowl full of cold water to put your potatoes after cutting them in order stop them from oxidizing.
