Carrot & Sweet Potato Latkes

Many delicious recipes came out of my last extended stay with my brother and sister-in-law—I was helping them out with my adorable, mushy twin nephews (cooking, feeding, diaper-changing). You may remember the Peach Cobbler recipe I posted from that visit. Yum. Well, this Carrot & Sweet Potato Latke recipe was something I also served the tuckered out bunch for breakfast one morning (along with an incredible French Toast recipe that’s coming soon, too). This tasty recipe is perfect for the holidays or any side dish needs.

Print this recipe: Carrot & Sweet Potato Latkes

Makes: 4 latkes

Cheese grater or
Food processor with shredder blade
Steamer or a metal strainer/colander over a large pot (with lid) of boiling water

Try to buy everything organic. Here’s why.
1 1/4 cups sweet potato, shredded
1 1/2 cups sweet potato, diced
1/2 cup steamed carrot, diced
1/2 yellow onion diced (here’s a tip)
1 small clove garlic, minced (here’s a tip)
1 tsp fresh lemon juice (here’s a tip)
1/2 tsp fine ground sea salt
Pinch fresh ground pepper
Unrefined coconut oil

Let’s get started.
Shred your onion and 1 1/4 cup of sweet potato.

Dice carrot and 1 1/2 cups sweet potato and steam, covered, for about 20 minutes, until soft.

With a fork, mash together steamed carrots and sweet potato with shredded onion and sweet potato. Mash in salt and pepper.

In a skillet, warm 1 tsp coconut oil over medium heat. Form potato mixture into patties and place into skillet. Press flat with spatula and brown on each side 10 minutes.

Serve warm and enjoy!

Adaptation suggestion:
1. Try mashing some chopped kale into the mixture before forming patties for a Sweet Potato Kale Latke.

In between steps for this recipe, I would sneak out of the kitchen to check in on things. Just look at that runaway sock on my tiny nephew. It makes me laugh every time.
