Cooking sweet potatoes:
To bake sweet potatoes: wash them well, poke a couple of holes with a knife, wrap in foil and bake at 350 until soft. Bake time will depend on how large are your sweet potatoes. If you get smaller ones, you can significantly decrease cooking time. Once done, cool until easy to handle and scoop out all the potato meat into the mixing bowl.
To boil sweet potatoes: wash, peel and cut them in half or in four pieces, depending on the size. Add cut sweet potato pieces to salted boiling water and cook until butter knife easily goes through. Drain and add them to the mixing bowl.
Sweet Potato Cakes:
Mash sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl until smooth.
Add green onions, cilantro, sour cream, egg, bread crumbs, grated garlic and mix well.
Add salt and pepper, mix well and taste to make sure you have enough.
Preheat a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add some vegetable oil.
Form sweet potato patties and cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side. Use a small spatula and flip carefully.
