Scrumptious Sweet Potato Pancakes

I am so excited about today’s post because I get to chat with you about two of my favorites — Kikkoman Soy Sauce and aha moments!

I can’t think of a better way to describe what happened other than an aha moment.  All my life I have been under the impression that soy sauce was loaded with sodium and should be used sparingly.  I was so sure, I would have bet money on it.  Recently I learned, I was wrong {I learn something new everyday}. Say goodbye to sodium paranoia, say hello to Kikkoman Soy Sauce and my new recipe for Scrumptious Sweet Potato Pancakes!

I received a free sample of Kikkoman soy sauce mentioned in this post.  By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Kikkoman and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest.  I was not compensated for my time.

First and foremost, I never realized that soy sauce could be a lower sodium substitute for salt in recipes.  In fact, by using 1/2 tsp. Kikkoman Soy Sauce in place of 1/2 tsp. table salt, the sodium content of the recipe is cut by 1000 mg!!  Hello?  Are you still there??  If you fell off your chair, I hope you’re ok. P.S. You’re not alone down there.

As a matter of fact, with less sodium than salt, soy sauce is a great option to boost the flavor in whatever you’re cooking! It’s a wonderful addition to all the comfiest comfort foods…like potato pancakes, soups, dressings or tomato sauce! {To me, there’s no better comfort food than potato pancakes!}

And Kikkoman offers a variety of less sodium products, including Less Sodium Soy Sauce, 50% Less Sodium Gluten-Free Tamari Soy Sauce, Less Sodium Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce, and 50% Less Sodium Gluten-Free Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce.

made with Kikkoman Soy Sauce, not salt!

The story goes like this. I was craving regular potato pancakes but I only had sweet potatoes on hand. So I decided to make this quick side dish and substitute sweet potatoes for white potatoes.  Then I went one step further and substituted soy sauce for salt!

So tell me…have you ever heard of potato pancakes made with soy sauce?  Of course not.  For this reason, it earns the official spot in your fusion cuisine category.  My picky-uni family gobbled them up like presto poof…gone. As a matter of fact, they asked me to make another batch, they are that good! Proof they are so good…they came back for seconds!

These scrumptious sweet potato pancakes are crispy on the outside and deliciously soft on the inside. Top off with a dallop of dill greek yogurt or sour cream. This recipe is easy, quick and lower sodium than traditional recipes.

Have you ever used soy sauce in place of salt?

Are you sodium conscience?
