Meatless Monday: Baked Sweet Potato Latkes

This week, we are posting a Meatless Monday recipe featuring the sweet potato!

Why this ingredient in particular? Along with being tasty, sweet potatoes can empower women and girls around the world! According to the International Potato Center, the sweet potato is an untapped crop that could potentially improve the nutrition, incomes, and food production for farming families in Sub-Saharan Africa, especially among impoverished women and children. That makes it a great fit for our October Outreach celebrating International Day of the Girl!
