And Something Fried

Oh, in regards to my last post, I also had SEVEN sweet potatoes left after the big clean.  I made some fries, I made waffles, and then I made these:

(Vegan) Sweet Potato Pancakes

Kind of not the best picture, sowwy
Roughly 2 cups shredded sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons AP flour + 2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 yellow onion
2 tablespoons coconut milk
Shakes and shakes of salt, pepper, cinnamon, and nutmeg (to taste)
Canola oil for frying

1. Chop the onion!  Shred the taters if you haven't already.
2. Grab a medium- sized mixing bowl, and throw in the sweet potatoes, flour/cornstarch, and spices.  Mix well before adding coconut milk, and again before tossing in the onion.  Taste and adjust spiced as needed.
3. Heat a skillet over medium-heat, and add a shallow pool of oil for frying.  Once hot, spoon 1/2 cup batter into skillet for each pancake.  Flip after about 3 minutes, or until you have a solid pancake that doesn't break apart when touched (and is golden brown/dark brown in color).
4. Place on a plate with a few paper towels to soak up a bit of that oil!  Serve with (vegan) sour cream and/or applesauce!
