Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled
  • ½ onion
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese Five Spice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • Sour cream for topping (optional)
  • 2 green onions, chopped, for garnishing

Instructions

  1. In a food processor using the shredder blade, shred the sweet potatoes. Place in a large mixing bowl. Shred the carrots and place in the bowl with the potatoes. Grate the onion with the slicer blade, strain in a paper towel or kitchen towel to remove any liquid. Add to the mixing bowl. To the potato mixture add the Chinese Five Spice, eggs, coconut flour, and salt. Mix thoroughly with your hands until well-combined.
  2. Heat the oil on medium-high in a heavy cast iron skillet. Forming small patties with the potato mixture, place into the hot oil and cook patties (latkes) until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side, pressing down periodically. Transfer the latkes to a paper towel to drain. Keep warm while cooking remaining latkes. Serve on a platter with a side of sour cream if desired, and sprinkle the latkes with the scallions.
