Official Meatless Monday Blogger I don’t know if I had latkes on the brain or what, but wham- I had an urge to make a sweet potato pancake. However instead of apple sauce and sour cream, I opted for a healthier topping made with apples and cucumbers! Ingredients For pancakes (yields 6-8 pancakes)

  • 1 sweet potato grated
  • 1 small onion grated
  •  3 tablespoons egg substitute or 1 egg
  • 2 heaping T of quinoa flour (or whatever flour you have handy)
  • 1/4 t baking powder
  • 1 t cumin
  • small handful chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 T olive oil

Apple Cucumber Salsa

  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 small handful cilantro

1. To make the pancakes combine all ingredients with the exception of the olive oil, only use 1 T. Reserve the rest of the oil for cooking (or use a non-stick spray) 2. Drop batter into a hot pan that has either the olive oil or the non-stick spray 3. Cook pancake on each side for 4-5 minutes or until browned Salsa preparation

  1. Roughly chop all ingredients
  2. Pulse in food processor until mixed but not mushy

Scoop a spoonful of salsa on each pancake and enjoy!!
