Amazing that THIS:
Can make THESE slices of heaven:
Ok, here's how to get started on your new starchy weakness. You'll need:
•1 pound of sweet potatoes. Which was two this size:
•2 scallions, chopped
•1/4 cup whole wheat flour
•6 tablespoons of liquid egg whites
•1 1/2 teaspoon of s and p
•3/4 cup vegetable oil
•Stir all ingredients together except for the oil. It will be a little runny, and might not stick together very well. If you have trouble keeping it together, you can add a little flour as needed, but I didn't need to.
•Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over med-high heat (doesn't matter the size- it depends on your preference of how many you want to cook at a time. I used a small one, cooking 4-5 at a time)
•While they are frying, press down on them slightly.
•Cook until they are good and golden, and a little crispy (but don't burn them!). It took about 2 minutes on each side.
•Immediately blot and drain on paper towels (or a napkin like me since I was out lol). This made 11, or 12 if you count the burnt one I cast aside. Ziggy got that one.
