Potato Pancakes With Guacamole (Vegan, Grain-Free)

No comments

If it’s one thing Scotland is known for, it’s potatoes. And I’m very happy to indulge. I didn’t know there were so many varieties!

What a newb, I am, eh?

New potatoes have been a favorite lately. Their gentle, buttery texture mashed and topped with fresh dill and a dollop of vegan butter is heavenly.

But last night I was craving something a little different. So, I ventured to Real Foods in Edinburgh to pick up a few items to experiment with.

Thus, a meal of sweet potato pancakes with “avocado crema” AKA guacamole was born. It’s the perfect meal to welcome autumn with a little spice.

Ingredients for Potato Pancakes

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 3 white potatoes, variety of choice
  • 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 bunch cilantro (coriander)
  • 1 bunch dill

Directions for Potato Pancakes

  1. Steam potatoes until soft.
  2. While the potatoes are steaming, caramelize the onion and garlic together. Set aside. This is also a good time to make the guacamole (recipe below).
  3. Once potatoes are done, mash. Then, add the onion and garlic and form patties.
  4. Fry the potato pancakes until golden brown on both sides. If you choose to use oil, try avocado or hemp for a nutty flavor.
  5. Enjoy your potato pancakes with a dollop of fresh guac and a sprinkle of cilantro (corriander) over top.

Ingredients for Guacamole

  • 1 large avocado
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno, diced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro (coriander), finely chopped

Directions for Guacamole

  1. Mash the avocado with the lime juice, garlic, onion, jalapeno and cilantro.
  2. Stir until evenly blended.
  3. Enjoy!

    I hope you enjoy this twist on the typical potato pancake recipe! Let me know if you make this in a comment below!
