Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • 4 c shredded sweet potato (I used a mix of white sweet potato and Asian yams)
  • ½ c fine minced onion
  • 2 tbsp. minced fresh dill
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. arrowroot flour
  • 1 gelatin egg (mix 1 tbsp. of gelatin with 1 tbsp. of cold water, then whisk in 2 tbsp. of boiling water until frothy)
  • Oil or fat of choice (FOC) for frying
  1. In a medium bowl, mix the sweet potato, onion, dill, salt, and arrowroot flour. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the gelatin egg.
  3. Add the gelatin egg to the sweet potato mixture and combine thoroughly.
  4. Heat pan to medium-high.
  5. Add about 1-2 tbsp. of oil or FOC to the pan. (Remember to add more oil/FOC as needed during the cooking process.)
  6. Reduce heat to medium.
  7. Drop ¼ c of the latke mixture onto the pan. Flatten slightly with the back of the spatula to a diameter of about 3 inches and ¼ inch thickness.
  8. Cook 2 minutes on one side, flip, and cook an additional 1-2 minutes on the second side.
  9. This recipe makes about a dozen latkes.
