Spicy Sweet Potato Hash Browns

Our friend Judy loves sweet potatoes & she asked us to come up with an ultra tasty recipe that uses them as the main ingredient.
We were up for the challenge so we put our thinking caps on & came up with this.

The whole meal was really, REALLY tasty & very easy to make. Fingers crossed Judy approves!



Hash Browns

  • 3 sweet potatoes (grated)
  • 1 onion (grated)
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • 2 Avocados
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red chillies
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • pinch salt (to taste)
  • 1/3 cup cilantro (finely chopped)
  • Vegetable Oil

To serve

  • Rice (Sprinkle smoked paprika on top)


  1. 1.

    Put the grated sweet potato & onion in a tea towel & squeeze the moisture out into a bowl.

  2. 2.

    Put the mixture into a mixing bowl, add the other hash brown ingredients & mix them all together until they begin to clump (you may need to use some more flour)

  3. 3.

    With your hands shape the mixture into burgers.

  4. 4.

    Shallow fry the ‘burgers’ in hot oil (around 180℃ (356℉) on both sides so they darken slightly.

  5. 5.

    Put the burgers on a baking tray & bake them in the oven at 200℃ (392℉) for 12 minutes (this ensures the potato cooks all the way through)

  6. 6.

    Whilst the hash browns are cooking put the guacamole ingredients in a bowl & mash them together to your preferred consistency (mash the avocados & oil first)

  7. 7.

    Serve both with rice. BOSH!
