POACHED EGGS WITH SWEET POTATO PANCAKES
This is a healthy breakfast which I adapted from the TV Show....The Chew at ABC Channel. This recipe was introduced by Dr. Oz daughter, Daphne Oz. Daphne whipped up this simple and tasty breakfast with ingredients she found in Feeding America pantry.
I love the sweet potato pancakes because is so light and crunchy without a guilt in every bites. This recipe is great to be kept in the kitchen and here's the recipe I would like to share.
1 - 2 tbsp vinegar
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 sweet onion, grated
1 carrot, grated
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 sweet potato, peeled and grated
1/2 green apple, grated
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
5 large eggs
1. In a wide 3-quart heavy saucepan, fill in 1/2 way with water and add 1 to 2 tbsp vinegar and bring to a simmer.
2. Break 1 egg into a small bowl or cup. Make a quick stir in the pot to make a swirl and slide the egg into the swirling water. Repeat with each remaining egg, spacing them evenly in the saucepan, and poach at a bare simmer until whites are firm and yolks are still runny, about 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer eggs as cooked to paper towels using a slotted spoon.
3. On the cheese cloth or paper towel, squeezed out the juices of the grated sweet potatoes, onion, apple and carrot together to ensure the pancakes won't be soggy.
4. Then in a large bowl, mix the grated sweet potatoes, grated onion, grated apple, grated carrot, egg whites and flour. Then add the salt and pepper. Mix well.
5. In a medium-sized skillet, heat 1/3 cup olive oil to medium-high heat. Drop enough pancake batter into the hot oil to make about 3-inches pancakes. Add more oil, as needed, and fry the pancakes in batches until golden brown on each side.
6. On the individual serving platter, placed the poached egg and sweet potato pancakes. Served immediately with your favorite hot sauce, tomato ketchup or as it is.
