Perfect Purple Potato Pancakes
Its name may be a mouthful to say, but it definitely makes for a tasty one at that! Similar to a traditional Latke, these potato pancakes are worth celebrating! But don’t be surprised that once peeled their insides are golden white.
This dish can be enjoyed for breakfast or as a savory side dish to any meal. Make it your own and top the pancakes with a dollop of Greek Yogurt. Stick to about a ½ cup equivalent for low FODMAP, but remember to track and trend which foods and in what portion you tolerate them. I freeze these pancakes by placing the wax paper in between them and putting them in an airtight plastic bag. Then I quickly defrost them in the microwave and serve them with eggs and veggies as a breakfast or dinner.
