Potato Pancakes Low Carb
Recipe By :Barbo's Low Carb Recipe Archives
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Vegies
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
5 ounces jicama -- grated
2 tablespoons onion -- grated
1 whole egg
2 tablespoons Atkins Baking Mix
3 tablespoons cooking oil -- for frying
1/2 teaspoon salt -- or to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper -- or to taste

In a Pyrex measure dish place grated jicama and water to almost cover. Place a lid on and nuke on high for 6 minutes (I have 900 watts). Remove and drain in a colander. Place back in Pyrex and let cool.

Grate onion and throw in with jicama, add seasonings, the egg and baking mix (or use Hodgson's soy flour with baking powder). Mix well.

In large skillet heat your oil and add the batter in blobs until you have 7-8 pancakes. Fry on each side until nice and brown.

Makes 8 'potato pancakes' @ 1.3 grams each. Total carb grams .7 with fiber deducted
5 ounces jicama after peeling and grated,equals 2 c.

NOTES : I nuke the jicama 9-10 minutes, and use flour instead of the Atkins Mix. This makes each patty 2 carbs.
