Curried Split Pea and Sweet Potato Hash Browns

All week I've been waiting to find time to make 

Curried Split Pea and 
Sweet Potato Hash Browns
adapted from Whole Wheat or Bust

1 medium sweet potato
1 small white potato
1/3 cup rye or oat flakes
1/3 cup diced onion
2 whole beaten eggs
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
 1 clove minced garlic
2 tsp curry powder
Dash salt + pepper

A. Add split peas to boiling water, reduce heat to low and
      cook for 35-45 minutes until they are semi-softened
B. Using a grater, grate your potatoes into strips and squeeze
      out excess moisture with a paper towel or dish cloth
C. Combine eggs, rye/oat flakes, onion, oil and spices together in a bowl
D. Drain split peas and dry them on a paper towel or dish cloth
E. Mix everything together; Split peas, potato and egg mixture
F. Scoop a heap of your "Hash Mash" onto a non-stick skillet over medium heat
G. Feel free to occasionally cover the pan to help the hash browns cooked thoroughly
H. Using a spatula, flip when bottom browns, and continue cooking on the other side

The recipe yielded me 6 medium sized hash brown patties

The original recipe used lentils which would be fantastic, 
as well as other types of legumes you could experiment with

Kelsey these look fantastic! I bet they'd taste great with a fried egg on top and then the yolk would ooze out!

i always choose sweet potatoes over regular, white ones. SO much more flavor! plus i love colorful food :)

Oh my goshhhhh kelsey! These ROCK! I am so glad you went with split peas, it looks like they worked perfectly! I am honestly so flattered that you made one of my recipes. I love how you tweaked it!

And about todays post - I eat the psyillium cereal too! I usually mix it with another kind though... ;)

Oh, this looks really interesting (in the good sense)! Such a creative recipe! I've just made split peas myself for the first time, and although it wasn't love at the first bite, I actually liked them and will make them again.
