Crispy Sweet Potato Hash browns with Jalapeno Garlic Aioli

I went out to lunch with a girlfriend of mine a few weeks back and on the menu were sweet potato tater tots. They were served with a jalapeno garlic aioli. I knew they were not paleo but had to make the best decision possible with what i was given. Well they were pretty darn good -- so good, in fact, that i decided to remake them at home and totally paleo... i gotta admit - my version was better -- even if i wasnt able to make those tiny tot thingies -- again please excuse the picture  :) 

Crispy Sweet Potato hash browns with Garlic Jalapeno Aioli

2 medium sweet  potatoes
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp parsley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Coconut oil for frying

Peel and shred one and a half of the sweet potatoes into a medium sized bowl.
Cube the other half of the sweet potato then boil until tender. Mash and add to shredded sweet potatoes.  (The mashed potatoes will help the hash brown stick together)
Add onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. 
Form into 3-4 inch patties and fry until golden brown. Serve with garlic jalapeno aioli (recipe below).

Garlic Jalapeno Aioli
½ jalapeno, seeded (more if you like it spicy – I used the whole thing)
1 clove garlic
Pinch of salt and pepper (optional)

Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Enjoy!
