Florida Vegetable Recipe

Savory Sweet Potato and Ginger Pancakes

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 cup green onions, sliced
  peanut oil, as needed for frying
Place a small amount of the sweet potatoes in a food processor and pulse until the potato pieces are about the size of dried rice; repeat procedure with remaining potatoes until they are similar in size. Add the yellow onions to the last batch of potatoes to be processed. Combined remaining ingredients and add to processed potatoes in a large bowl; mix thoroughly. Spoon potato batter into a skillet and fry with 1/8 inch of oil over medium heat. Brown both sides and serve hot.

Look for "Fresh from Florida" ingredients at your grocery store.
