Sweet potatoes saved me during my 30 days on the @Whole30! I made then anyway they could be cooked. …..sauteed, mashed, grated, cubed or baked,they made it to my plate at least 4 times a week. When I put some of their magic on my plate I felt like my meal was complete. One little bite of grated sweet potatoes mixed with fresh chives and sauteed with a TBSP. of ghee and my tastebuds said “ah, thank you!”
So a quick little recipe to get you started, especially if you have only had sweet potatoes at holiday time with marshmallow topping and you think you hate them!
Sweet potato fritter
1 organic sweet potato, peeled
2 TBSP. fresh chive, minced
pinch kosher salt
pinch coarse ground pepper
1 tsp. dried chipotle flakes
1 egg white. beaten
2 TBSP. almond flour
3 TBSP. ghee or clarified butter
Using a hand grater or your food processor, grate the sweet potato. Mix it a medium bowl with the salt,pepper, chipotle and chives.
next toss the grated potato with the almond flour to distribute evenly.
mix in the beaten egg white and mix thoroughly.
melt the ghee in a saute pan over medium high heat .
drop in large spoonfuls of the potato mixture and let it sizzle for about three minutes .
Flip it over and let it sizzle some more.. they should have a little crust top and bottom.
Serve these with your protein and lots of fresh veggies for dinner or with your eggs for breakfast..you will never miss mashed potatoes or pasta, I promise ♥
