Living on Okinawa I am privileged to be able to get my hands easily on the okinawan purple sweet potatoes, or benimo as the locals call it. So I have decided to try my hand at making and sharing different ways to use and cook them.
Since I recently received my new Pampered Chef Veggie Strip Maker I wanted to use it to try making sweet potato cakes. I started with about 7 small purple sweet potatoes that I peeled.
Once the potatoes were all shredded I added to them 1 beaten egg, 3 tbsp of flour, and salt and pepper taste.
I thoroughly mixed it while heating some grape seed oil in my skillet. I didn’t measure the oil, but just used enough for a light coating of the bottom of the pan.
