You know, sweet potato flatbread reminds me of my childhood when my grandmother would make lokše.

Now guys, no matter what flatbread you try to make you will be in for a treat.
How to make flatbread from sweet potatoes
Start off with boiling sweet potatoes. It will take about 7-10 minutes to cook them thoroughly. Peel them, dice them and place them in a small pot. Pour water in – just enough to cover them.
Drain the water, let them cool down a bit and mash them with a fork or potato ricer. Add flour and using your hands form into sticky dough. Dip this dough in flour and roll it into a sausage. Divide it into 8 pieces.
Each piece should be rolled out thin. It will be sticky so make sure you dust your work top and each dough piece well.
Cook in a frying pan without any oil whatsoever. It will take about 2 minutes to cook each flatbread (about a minute per side). Medium-low heat is ideal. The bubbles will form but this is good. They help to cook the flatbread.
Storage: Sweet potato flatbreads can be stored in the freezer and defrosted when needed. However they always taste best when fresh.
This sweet potato flatbread recipe is suitable for vegetarians and vegans as well. Those who don’t like or don’t have sweet potatoes can use white potatoes instead.
