These sweet and savory sweet potato latkes are rich in fiber and antioxidants. Cassava flour helps bind the latkes with a built-in herb seasoning that’s Paleo and AIP compliant.

How long will Sweet Potato Latkes last for?

Once you cook sweet potato latkes, they will last for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Make sure they are cool before refrigerating them and only refrigerate one layer of latkes. Do not stack them. Latkes keep better when covered in plastic, so use plastic wrap or bags. With that said, the best way to store your latkes is to freeze them.

Can Sweet Potato Latkes be frozen?

Yes, you can freeze sweet potato latkes once they're cooked. As mentioned above, this is the best way to store them since moisture and fried potatoes don't mix. Your sweet potato latkes will last for up to two weeks in the freezer. As with refrigeration, make sure the latkes are cool before freezing. Then freeze them on a cooking sheet in a single layer. When frozen, transfer your sweet potato latkes to freezer bags. When you're ready to enjoy them for a meal, defrost the latkes in your refrigerator the night before.

Other tips for making Sweet Potato Latkes:

  • Do not cook over 4 latkes at a time.

  • Flip sweet potato latkes when you see them browning. Only flip them twice.

  • Use a food processor to shred your potatoes instead of a grater. You can use a grater, but a food processor gives you shoestring-consistent potatoes. The shoestring-consistency lends itself well to frying because the potato pieces will stay together. Plus, a food processor will grate the sweet potatoes faster.

  • We recommend using a towel to dry your potatoes, but if you can, use cheesecloth instead.

  • When you drain the sweet potatoes, wring out the water and use the starch as a binder to form the latkes.

  • Add salt to your latkes right before frying.

  • Try frying with canola or peanut oil for crispier latkes.

  • Feel free to substitute sour cream for plain Greek yogurt.
