Sweet Potatoes are a big part of my diet. I didn’t always love them, but now I am pretty fond of them and I’m always trying to find new ways to make them so I don’t get bored. I got this idea from a friend of mine who made some salmon cakes the other night, so I thought to myself, “Why not sweet potato cakes?”
Hope you enjoy these as much as my family and guests did last night! They were a huge hit!
Sweet Potato Cakes
- 2 Large Sweet Potatoes- Baked (or put them in the microwave for 10 approx. minutes)
- 1/2 flour of your choice
- 5 Green Onions- chopped (green and white pieces)
- 1/3 cup Cilantro -chopped
- Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
- 1 tbl Garlic Powder
- 2 tbl Olive Oil
- No Calorie Spray “Butter”
In a large bowl scoop out the contents of the sweet potatoes. Mash with a fork. Add flour, green onions and cilantro. Mix well with your hands. The mixture should be sticky. Add in pepper and garlic. I used about 1/2 tbl of ground pepper. Mix well.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add a few sprays of spray butter for extra flavor. Form mixture into small patties about 2 inches round. Cook in layers (this makes about 10 cakes) for 3-4 minutes on each side. You may need to add more spray butter to brown the cakes while cooking.
Once cakes are browned on each side transfer to a plate with paper towels on it to drain. Serve immediately.
These were delicious all on their own, but I topped mine with store bought Peach Mango Salsa. The sweetness of the salsa really brought out the sweet potatoes! I bet this would be really good with a chutney as well or even a little fat free sour cream. Be creative and play with your tastes.
