"It is easy to halve the potato where there is love."
-Irish Proverb

The refrigerator light goes on...

You can go any way that strikes your fancy with these. The cinnamon and nutmeg take the flavor sweeter, but you can use sage, for example, and come out with a great savory taste. These would also lend themselves well to spicy cajun or Southwestern flavors.

Nutmeg

Nutmeg is sold both as the whole seed and ground. The seed is about an inch long and oval shaped with a light brown skin. Grinding your nutmeg fresh, like grinding any spice fresh, is far superior to any ground nutmeg that you can purchase.

I have a nutmeg grater. These come in a variety of styles, but the one I have is made by Zyliss. It has a little cylinder that the nutmeg fits into and then is held in place with a spring. As you run the holder back and forth over the grater there's no chance of grating your knuckles. A must for any serious chef.

This recipe does not make very good leftovers.

1 lb sweet potatoes (grated)
3 Tbsp chick pea flour
1 large egg (whisked)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
4 tsp olive oil



Place the grated sweet potatoes in a large mixing bowl.

Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and pepper and fold together.

Sprinkle the chick pea flour over the top and fold together.

Add the egg and fold together until well blended.

Divide into eight piles and then pat together into small pancakes.

Place two teaspoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.

When the oil is hot add the pancakes.

Cook on one side for about 5 minutes. Adjust the heat so that the oil is not too hot and the pancakes don't burn.

Add the remaining oil to the pan.

Turn the pancakes and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

Serve.
