These Gluten Free Sweet Potato Latkes are a twist on the traditional. They’re slightly sweet and savory, crispy on the outside and perfect served with either apple or cranberry sauce! Made gluten and dairy-free!
Peel and grate the potatoes (you can use a food processor or grate by hand) then place in a bowl of cold water and set aside.
Peel and grate the onions.
Add both potato and onion mixture to a fine mesh strainer lined with a cheese cloth or a thin kitchen towel and strain as much excess water out as possible.
Place mixture into a bowl, along with scallions, eggs, tapioca, salt and baking powder and mix well.
Heat 1/2 cup of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
Once oil is hot, make patties out of the potato mixture (squeeze out even more excess liquid as you make patties) and pan-fry batches until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Add more oil as needed.
Serve with hot with applesauce or sour cream and enjoy!
