CSA Summer: Sweet Potato & Garlic Chive Pancakes

Late last winter, I signed up for a share in the Featherstone Farm CSA program. They are a farm from Rushford that delivers to Rochester. So once a week (on Thursdays), I get to come and pick up my share at a local Rochester location. Last week was my first box and included asparagus, rhubarb, garlic chives, and lettuce. 

Here's my first made-up summer recipe: Sweet Potato & Garlic Chive Pancakes


1 sweet potato (grated)
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda (I have no idea why I added this)
2 eggs
1/4 cup garlic chives (or regular chives)

1. Grate the sweet potato with a cheese grater or use a spiralizer. You want very thin, fine slices of sweet potato. After grating it, I placed the sweet potato in a bowl, added a little salt, and wrapped up the slices in paper towel for about 20 minutes to get rid of excess water.

2.  Add in 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 2 whole eggs. You can also add your chives. Mix it all together with your hands.

3. Warm up your griddle.  Spoon the mixture onto the griddle. My one large sweet potato made 7 pancakes. I made them a little too thick. I highly recommend making them nice and thin so that they can get nice crispy. About 3-5 minutes per side.

4.  You did it! Now enjoy! I ate mine with some ketchup and brown mustard. Delicious! The garlic chives add a good flavor to the mix, but they aren't overpowering. These make for a savory breakfast, and they'd also be a great dinner side.
