Ingredients
Sweet Potato Cakes
Sriracha Mayonnaise
Instructions
  1. Start off making your Flax “Egg”. Use 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds in addition to two and a half tablespoons of water. Mix both the flaxseed and water together and let it set 10-15 minutes . Once it’s a thickened, gel-like consistency it’s ready to be used in your recipe.
  2. Next, Wash, peel and grate your sweet potatoes.
  3. Using the grated sweet potatoes, you need to wrap them in either a few paper towels or a dish towel. Squeeze out all of the water and excess moisture that you can. The drier the potato shreds the better.
  4. Add the dried grated potatoes, flour, panko, flax eggs, cinnamon and salt to a large mixing bowl. Combine thoroughly. It may be easier if you used your hands {just be sure to wash your hands first}.
  5. Next, using the palm of your hand, size and shape the patties. Make sure to flatten them, the thinner they are the crispier they will be. Lay them out on a dish and repeat until all the sweet potato mixture is used up.
  6. Add oil to a hot skillet. The most important step, be sure the oil is just hot enough. You want it to sizzle but not to splash oil all over. Drop in a few patties and pan fry 5 minutes each side. They may need a little longer on each side. Be sure to only flip one time while cooking. They are ready to flip and remove when both sides are golden and crispy.
  7. Add the fried sweet potato cakes to a paper towel lined dish. You want to absorb the excess oil. Once the cakes have cooled off, divide each serving and plate the cakes.
  8. Serve the sweet potato cakes with your choice of dip. If desired serve with Sriracha Mayo. Take a few tablespoons of vegan mayo and add as much or as little sriracha you would like. Just mix it and it’s ready to be used.
