Onion and Sweet Potato Hash Browns

 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
 1 brown onion, peeled and diced
 1 tbsp plain flour
 Pinch of smoked paprika or cayenne pepper
 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
 Salt & pepper to season
To serve
 Caramelised onion or chives and steamed baby spinach.

Place the grated sweet potato in a large colander and give it a good soak to get the starch out of it.


Drain out any excess moisture using a cloth so the sweet potato is very dry. Too much water in the mixture will make the hash browns soggy.


Transfer to a large bowl and add the onion, flour, salt and pepper and paprika. Mix well and add more flour if required.


Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Scoop heaped tablespoons of the mixture in the pan and gently flatten with a spatula.


Cook the hash browns until golden and crispy, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Repeat until all the mixture is used up.


Serve hash browns with extra caramelised onions, chopped chives and steamed baby spinach.
