Sweet Potato Veggie Fritters

This weekend we experimented quite a bit in the kitchen. Overall there were two triumphs and one fail. Parmesan flatbread = TRIUMPH! Sweet Potato Macaroons = TRIUMPH! Gluten Free Pita Bread = EPIC FAIL! While I was trying to decide which recipe to talk about today, I went ahead and used up the rest of my sweet potatoes from yesterday’s macaroons for a quick weeknight dinner. You know what? Those other recipes can wait. Tonight’s experiment trumps them all!

These fritters could easily be used as fulfilling and delicious veggie burgers complete with bun but they’re great on their own too. (Besides, I’ve yet to find a gluten free hamburger bun that doesn’t take concentrated effort to choke down. If you’ve discovered one, please let me know!) Either way, these fritters are quick and easy.


1 medium roasted sweet potato

4 green onions, chopped

2 celery ribs, chopped finely

3 small, multicolored peppers

1 egg

2 Tbsp all purpose flour (I used a brown rice/sorghum/tapioca flour mix)

2 Tbsp olive oil for frying

salt and pepper to taste


Mash the roasted sweet potato in a medium bowl. Add onions, celery, peppers and egg. Mix well. Add flour, salt and pepper and mix. Form into patties. Heat olive oil in a hot pan on the stovetop. Place patties into pan, sear over medium high heat on both sides. Turn heat down to medium heat and cook through, flipping once or twice. 

Serve and enjoy. Yields 4 patties.

While Kid Foodie claims to dislike sweet potatoes, I know better. Since I’ve already devoured my fritter, I can confidently claim this experiment to be a success. So if we include this with this weekend’s recipes, that officially makes 3 triumphs and one fail. Not too shabby. If you decide to give these a try, let me know your thoughts. I’ll try to be back in a couple days with the other winning recipes from this soggy spring weekend.

    Even before his diagnosis of Celiac Disease in 2010, Kid Foodie was passionate about food. Although the diagnosis brought some restrictions, his appreciation and appetite for good, healthy food has only skyrocketed.

    For me, his diagnosis of Celiac opened up a world of food possibilities and a new way of thinking about what we eat. It has absolutely been a joy to overhaul our family's food choices and we all continue to benefit from it. We write this blog to help our family and friends understand how to cook gluten free and to provide them recipes to try out themselves.
