Yotam Ottolenghi's Sweet Potato Galettes on Food52

Spicy, sweet, and punchy, baked fresh and served warm, this is the sort of starter that can precede almost anything. The generous sour cream base and the lightness of the puff pastry carry the sweet potato easily without the risk of a carb overdose. We like to serve it with a plain green salad.
