Vegan Sweet Potato Pancakes – What’s in it?

These easy vegan pancakes come with simple ingredients. For one, to keep them plant-based and preserve the flavors of the sweet potato, with little spice. The basis of the buffer consists of:

  • grated sweet potato and one potato
  • grated onion
  • Flaxseed for more protein and fiber
  • Cornstarch to bind the burgers together

They process these and then mix them with salt and pepper.

You can also incorporate coriander, ginger, turmeric, garlic, cayenne pepper and/or fresh spring onions into the fritters. But try it without that number of spices, you’ll be surprised how good these authentic vegan sweet potato fritters taste. So try it first and adjust the spices next time if necessary.

PS: I always recommend lots of freshly ground pepper.

Why could it also become your favourite?

  1. Vegan sweet potato pancakes are absolutely delicious. They are better than what I’ve gotten in any restaurant before, let alone the maybe still frozen vegetable patties bought in the supermarket.
  2. These burgers hold their shape before, during and after cooking. My experiences with vegetarian / vegan patties are otherwise quite difficult to make or even difficult to eat. Here the complete opposite.
  3. You can make these sweet potato pancakes in the oven, on the stovetop in a pan, or even on your grill.
  4. They freeze well so you can enjoy them again later.
  5. Vegan sweet potato fritters are perfect for people following special diets. These burgers are naturally vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, egg-free, and soy-free.
