While trying to think of what to make with cod cakes, I realized I had some sweet potatoes that needed to be used up. I came up with this idea. The sprinkling of turbinado sugar gives these latkes a little extra flavor and eliminates the need to top them with anything else.
serves 8 ( 2 latkes = 6 points + )
- 6 c. grated sweet potato
- 1 c. grated apple
- 1-½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. pepper
- ½ c. flour
- 6 T. canola oil
- 1-½ tsp. turbinado sugar
Combine grated sweet potato and apple in a large colander. Press out any liquid. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add salt, pepper and flour.
Heat 1-½ T. in a nonstick skillet. Drop 4 latkes by ¼ cupfuls onto hot pan. Press to flatten. Cook 6 minutes on each side or until golden. Repeat procedure 3 more times with remaining oil and sweet potato mixture. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
