Sweet Potato Fritters

  • 2 sweet potatoes on the small side peeled and shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ Cinnamon
  • ¼ Flour
  • ¼ normal breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper

Lemon Tahini Dip

  • ½ cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp water
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp za’atar

Honey Cinnamon Dip

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp honey


  • Peel your potatoes and then grate them on the medium setting…. Not super fine, but not very thick.
  • Combine the rest of the sweet potato ingredients except for the oil in a bowl and mix.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan on the stove (I know that my oil is ready when a chopstick inserted in the oil forms bubbles around the wood).
  • Use your hands to form the sweet potato combination into balls, and then press between your palms to flatten.
  • Fry until browned on each side and cooked through, flipping halfway through.
  • For each of the dip recipes, combine all ingredients in a bowl. Enjoy!
