These delicious sweet potato fritters are perfect served alone or as a side. And well, with some lemon-tahini dipping sauce, they may be completely gone in one sitting!
INGREDIENTS (serves 4)
1 medium sweet potato, about 8 oz.
¼ cup all-purpose, unbleached flour
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper
½ tsp. cumin
1½ tsp. brown sugar
½-1 tsp. curry powder
¼ cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
--- Kosterina extra virgin oil for frying
--- fresh cilantro leaves, minced, for garnish
½ cup tahini, at room temperature
½ cup water (or more if desired)
2 med. garlic cloves
3 TBSP. fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp. sea salt
pinch of freshly ground pepper
Place all ingredients in a small food processor and blend until smooth. If the sauce is too thick, add a few more tablespoons of water and blend again, until it gets to your desired consistency. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
We won't hide it: avocados are one of our favorite fats (besides EVOO, of course!). This dish is filled with healthy fats - and could serve the entire family...or maybe just yourself (we won't tell!).
