Great Idea: Parsnip Carrot Latkes

Here’s a colorful seasonal alternative to traditional potato latkes:

Take your favorite latke recipe and substitute an equal amount of shredded parsnips and carrots for the potatoes (if you want them to be even more colorful, you can also add shredded zucchini, if you don’t mind that zucchini isn’t seasonal this time of year for most of us). The result is a lighter, more flavorful latke, and the parsnips and carrots make for a sweeter, more complex flavor than traditional potato latkes. Not to mention you can pretend you’re eating healthier because you’re eating veggie latkes instead of all those carbs (just forget about the whole fried in oil part). Chag sameach!

    Yum! And since we’re getting creative, here are some delicious alternative latke toppings. Nothing against sour cream and applesauce, of course…

    Hmmm, this looks a lot like a recipe my friend invented, which she published here:
