Fennel Spiced Sweet Potato Fritters
1 ¾ cups sweet potato, shredded
1 large egg
salt and pepper to taste
Coconut or olive oil for greasing the pan
1/4 teaspoon fennel seed.
What to do:
Shred 1 to 2 cups of sweet potato using a cheese grater or by processing in a food processor. Start preheating a skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add the egg to the sweet potato and whisk until combined. Add seasonings to taste and fennel seeds.
Lightly grease the pan by trickling a few drops of oil onto the pan and spreading them around with a spatula—you don’t need a lot. Using a spoon or a quarter cup measure, add ¼ cup of the sweet potato mixture into the pan at a time. Use your spatula to nudge all the sweet potato scraps into a neat pile and press down on the top with the back of the spatula to flatten. Let cook about 2-3 minutes before flipping. If the patty starts to fall apart when you try to flip it, cook it longer. The bottom should be sturdy enough to slide the spatula underneath. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
Serve with a side of sautéed spinach, grill capsicum, beef patty, and your favourite salsa.
