Savory Sweet Potato & Kale Pancakes
Health Highlights


2 small potato Sweet potato (wet ingredients)
5 leaves Kale (finely chopped, wet ingredients)
1 large Egg (wet ingredients)
1/2 cup Sunflower oil (wet ingredients)
1 piece, 1-inch Ginger root (peeled, minced, wet ingredients)
1 tbsp Nutmeg, ground
1 tsp Black pepper
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 cup Rice flour, brown
1 tsp Baking powder


  1. Wash and grate sweet potatoes. Alternatively, you can bake the sweet potatoes in the microwave by piercing them in a few places with a fork, placing the potatoes on a paper towel, and microwaving them on high for 3 minutes. Turn them to the other side and microwave for 2 more minutes or until fork-tender. Be careful when removing the sweet potato from the microwave - it will be hot. Allow it to rest for 2 minutes, then cut it in half, scoop out the flesh, and discard the skin.
  2. Combine the sweet potato, kale, egg, sunflower oil, and ginger in a large bowl. 
  3. Combine the nutmeg, black pepper, flour, and baking powder in a small bowl. 
  4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. If too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  5. Warm a large griddle on the stove and add 1 teaspoon of butter or sunflower oil. Once the oil is hot, place half a ladle full of batter into the pan. Flip the pancake over once it starts to set and small bubbles appear on the top, about 2-3 minutes. Cook for 2-3 minutes more.
  6. Repeat the steps for the rest of the pancakes.
  7. Enjoy warm.
