Sweet Potato Latkes with Roasted Onions and Hummus

This was my dinner tonight.

  • 6 small white onions
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs flax meal
  • 1 Tbs hot stock
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • Olive oil
  • Chili powder
  • 4 Tbs leftover hummus
  1. Heat oven to 350
  2. Peel the onions, cut off the ends and slice them in half across the grain.
  3. Crush and mince the garlic.
  4. Mix the stock with the flax meal.
  5. Peel and grate the potato.
  6. Put the potato in a bowl and add the garlic, flour, flax and lemon juice. 
  7. Mix well. (Add more stock if it doesn't hold together well.)
  8. Oil a roasting pan.
  9. Form the potato mixture into 4-6 patties and place on the pan.
  10. Put the onion halves in the gaps.
  11. Mist all the vegetables with an olive oil spray.
  12. Dust the potato patties with chili powder.
  13. Bake for app 20 minutes.
  14. Broil for app 2-3 minutes to get a slight char (optional).
  15. Pile hummus in middle of plate and arrange cooked items artistically around it.
I dabbed hummus on each bite of the latkes as I ate them. Delicious!

I should note that my sweet potatoes were not grated. I was given a spiral slicer as a gift, and used it to make this dish. The strands of sweet potato were two to three feet long.
