    These have a very special flavor, go great with my Moroccan Pumpkin Soup (L'hamraak Garagh).

      Very delicious. I love having another way to make sweet potatoes that is so fast and easy. As I was making these, I just couldn't resist putting in some finely chopped pecans and it turned out to be a good choice. This recipe makes enough latkes for several families, so I only made 1/3 of the original recipe and it worked just fine. Love these latkes, Mirj.

      I used organic sweet potatoes and they were tasty with warmed organic apple sauce and some ate with organic unhomoginised yogurt. I cooked them in organic extra virgin olive oil rather than gmo.

      The flavour of these is awesome! My potatoes were a bit too finely grated so they turned out extremely fragile and we had a lot of crumbs instead of proper pancakes, but the taste was soo good!! I'll make them again soon for sure, they were a huge hit in our house. Thanks for sharing!
