Moosewood Cookbook: Sweet Potato Pancakes
I love sweet potatoes! I love them grilled, roasted, boiled, etc. When I discovered this recipe in the Moosewood Cookbook, I thought, "How could I go wrong?"
This recipe is easy to make (if you have a food processor) and the results are tasty. I actually made them late one evening and ended up refrigerating for the next day. I tried a taste the night I made them, but actually preferred them reheated the next day. The flavors of sweet potato and onion had blended well. I topped the Sweet Potato Pancakes with a dollop of Karoun Mediterraniean Syle Lowfat Yogurt. What a delicious lunch!
