Sweet Potato Plantcakes!

May 04, 2020

nettles plantcakesINGREDIENTS
  • 2 medium purple sweet potato (if available; otherwise use whatever root vegetable you have! parsnips, celery root, potatoes all work well!)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 TBSP nettles powder (or Vitamineral Greens powder, or other UNFLAVORED greens powder)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh herbs or 1 TBSP mixed dried herbs.  I used rosemary, dill, parsley, sage, mint and thyme, and it was divine.
  • Salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Oil or butter for pan-frying. 

DIRECTIONS

Set your oven to warm, and place a cookie sheet or pyrex in it. 

Grate the sweet potatoes in a Cuisinart or by hand and place in a bowl.  I use purple sweet potatoes as they are very dense and fragrant, and stand up to the nettles nicely.  They are also not too water-y, which makes pan frying easier. 

Add chopped or dried herbs and about 1/2-1 tsp salt to the shredded sweet potato and toss thoroughly. 

In another bowl, beat the eggs, and then mix in the nettles powder.  Beat gently until thoroughly mixed. 

Add the egg + nettle powder mixture to the bowl of shredded sweets, and mix thoroughly. 

Meanwhile, in a cast iron or heavy-bottomed pan, heat butter or oil of choice over medium heat (I used a combination of duck fat and cultured butter, but I have also used straight olive oil).  You want the oil sizzling a bit but not burning!

Scoop out about 2 TBSP of the mixture and flatten into a little latke-plantcake. 

Allow to cook a few minutes on one side, and then flip.  Cook a few minutes on the other side, and then move to the oven to keep warm.  Cook your plantcakes in batches, adding more cooking oil if necessary. 

Serve with plain non-dairy or regular yogurt, or this Ranch-ish dressing and some hot sauce for a decadent treat!nettle plantcakes

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.

Wonderful class

Isabella is a great teacher and inspires each of us to look at nature and our surroundings to infuse our skin with healing from our own creations. Thank you!

These liquid capsules are genius! Such an easy way to make hawthorne a daily tonic because I can easily take it with my other capsule supplements. The gel caps are easy to swallow. I've even punctured them before out of curiosity and the liquid tastes great. My grandmother started taking them as well because she doesn't like tinctures or tea based herbal remedies.. good alternative

It really works!

I was skeptical at first when I bought this for my partner because he had tried other natural deodorants and they did not have the staying power. We were both pleasantly surprised by how effective this meow meow tweet cream is! It lasts forever too because you can scoop out exactly how much you need each time!

Nervous Gut

When I'm super stressed I tend to hold it in my gut. My digestion will go out of wack during intense times in my life and this bitters blend is critical support for me. After taking a few dropperfuls I can feel the tension slowly start to release in my gut. Helpful for stress induced constipation and indigestion or lack of appetite when my nerves get the better of me.
