Cheesy Sweet Potato Bites
Gloria Tsang, RD
(~ 1 lb)
Glutinous rice flour
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
or vegan cheese
Green onion or parsley
Peel sweet potatoes, cut into smaller pieces, and steam for 15 minutes or until they are tender. Mash and let them cool down.
Once cooled, add glutinous rice flour, then mix with a spatula.
Add green onion, shredded cheese, and black pepper. Mix well with hands and roll them into ball shape.
Preheat a non-stick pan and drizzle with oil; turn to medium heat. Place sweet potato balls onto the pan; slightly flatten them with the back of the spoon. Cook for about 2 minutes or until crusted.
Flip and again flatten. Cook for another 2 minutes. You may flip them a couple of times as needed. Serve immediately and season with salt if needed.
Substitution note: You may use shredded vegan cheese as well. I've tried making these bites with Daiya cheese and they turn out great!
