  • 2 cups shredded sweet potatoes (see notes)
  • 1 cup grated/riced cauliflower (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt or as per taste
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp dried/fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions/green onions
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened dairy free milk

For servings


  • In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients (except servings) and mix it with a spoon. I prefer using my hands to make sure it is nicely mixed.
    dough batter
  • Now, grease your palm with very oil or cooking spray and place about 2 tbsp of the dough on your greased palm. Gently flatten it from the center roughly shaping it round.
  • Then, place it in your Air Fryer basket.Depending on air fryers size you may place 4-6 latkes in it at a time. Attach the basket to the air fryer and turn it on at 350 degree for 10-12 minutes or until nicely browned and crispy. Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.
  • Top them with sour cream and chives or green onions and serve with your choice of dressing.


  • For oven option: Follow steps 1 and 2 . Then place all the latkes on a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake it at 400-degree Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes or util nicely golden browned in color and crisped.
  • For stove top : Heat about 1 tbsp olive on a skillet and place the round latkes on it 1-2 at a time. Cook them at low-medium flame until crispy at the bottom and it firms up. Gently flip over to the other side with the help of a flat spatula and cook again until brown and crispy.
  • When shredding sweet potatoes make sure to shred it at the shredder side of the 4 sided grater. 1 large peeled sweet potato = 2 cups shredded sweet potato.
  • You may simply put cauliflower florets in a food process and pulse it or crush it. You may also use store bought uncooked riced cauliflower for this recipe.
  • This recipe make about 12 latkes and the serving size is 2 per person.
  • I have provided the nutritional value of these without sour cream.
  • When making it on stove top the nutritional value may vary.
