Crispy Sweet Potato Hash Brown Cakes

I LOVE potatoes!  Must be my Irish heritage.  White potatoes are rich in potassium and vitamin C.  With the skin, add 2 grams of fiber too.  Sweet potatoes also provide a good kick of vitamin A.  Today I am cooking with a bit of both.

I love potatoes prepared just about any way, but today, I thought I would try some crispy hash brown-like potato pancakes.

I grated a couple white potatoes and a large sweet potato, added a couple of egg whites, a bit of curry powder, paprika, salt and pepper and made up some yummy hash brown cakes…

I use a mild curry powder to give the potatoes just a bit of spice. {FODMAPers choose an onion free curry powder}

I formed rounded cakes and popped them in a skillet with a bit of olive oil over medium heat.

I like to serve these hash brown cakes with a tablespoon of plain Greek yogurt and a few chopped cilantro leaves…YUM!

{This recipe is FODMAP-friendly-for 1-2 hash brown cakes per sitting.  Sweet potatoes are a source of mannitol, a polyol but small amounts such as less than 1/2 a cup is considered low FODMAP.  White potatoes are low FODMAP)
