Sweet Potato + Apple Latke with Lemon Tahini Drizzle


I've been taking a little bit of a break from Vegetarian & Cooking while trying to figure out what the best way is for me to keep up this blog while maintaining my passion. Now that I'm working more than ever while still trying to keep my sanity and social life, I'm finding that Dave and I are cooking at home less and less which is cutting into how I'm running this blog as well.

In order to keep myself happy and this blog focused on showcasing a wonderful variety of vegetarian and vegan recipes, I'm going to be cutting back my posting schedule to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for now. I think this is the best way to keep up a quality of both posts and recipes, while still giving myself enough time to put everything together.

Today's recipe was something that had been sitting on my Pinterest for a while, I'm not sure why, because it was easy to make and tasted good.

Recipe from Spice and Sprout.

Ingredients:
Sweet Potato + Apple Latkes
-1 large sweet potato, peeled
-1 apple, peeled and quartered
-1/2 onion, diced
-1 teaspoon salt
-3 tablespoons flour
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-1 teaspoon turmeric
-pepper to taste

Tahini Lemon Drizzle
-3 tablespoon tahini
-juice of one lemon
-1 tablespoon honey
-water as needed to thin sauce
-optional: squirt of sriracha

Combine all of the ingredients for the tahini lemon sauce in a bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

Grate the sweet potato and the apple into a large mixing bowl. Squeeze as much liquid out of the grated sweet potato and apple as possible and transfer the squeezed mixture into a clean bowl. Add the onion, salt, flour, olive oil, turmeric, and pepper. Mix to combine.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray the skillet with cooking spray.  When the pan is hot take about 1/4 cup of the latke batter and squeeze it together into a flat, round patty. Place it on the hot pan and press down on it with a spatula. Cook for 2 - 4 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a plate covered in paper towel and repeat until all of the latkes are cooked  Serve hot with plenty of sauce!
