Lovely Latkes!

Hanukkah will be here very soon, therefore, I wanted to feature some gluten free versions of traditional holiday recipes.

Yesterday, I decided to make Sweet Potato Latkes! As it was my first time making a gluten free version of this recipe, I was rather surprised at how well they turned out and how tasty they were.

Below are the ingredients that you will need along with step-by-step directions on how to prepare this dish. Many of the ingredients are available at Ms. Celiac's Market. The following recipe will make you approximately 10 latkes.


*3 medium-sized sweet potatoes
*1/2 cup brown rice flour
*1/4 tsp baking powder
*1/2 tsp sea salt
*1 tsp cumin
*1/2 tsp black pepper
*1/4 cup sweet potato puree
*1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk
*2 tsp honey
*olive oil


1) Peel and grate the sweet potatoes and set aside.

2) Combine the brown rice flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, sea salt, cumin, and pepper. Mix.

3) Add the sweet potato puree, soy milk, and honey. Stir.

4) Using a frying pan, heat about a 1/4 inch of olive oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, drop the latke batter by spoonfuls onto the pan, cooking one at a time.

5) Flatten batter on pan with a spatula. Flip over and make sure that both sides are crispy.

6) Drain on paper towels.

7) Ready to serve.
