Healthier Sweet Potato Latkes

With Chanukah (or Hanukkah- whatever you prefer) right around the corner, we wanted to make sure that those who will be celebrating this year have a healthy alternative to some of the traditional fried foods served. For American Jews this is a very special Hanukkah since Thanksgiving falls on the 2nd day, a phenomenon that won’t occur for about another 70,000 years – give or take.

That being said, this is an appropriate healthier version of the latke that is suitable no matter where you are and regardless of if you are celebrating Thanksgivakkah or not.

Traditional potatoes have been replaced with the nutrient rich sweet potato. You could also use yams. Not much can be done about the whole fried bit, but hey, its a holiday, just drain them as well as you can.

Ingredients

1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated

2 green onions, finely chopped1/3 cup all-purpose flour (you can use any type of flour here)2 large eggs, lightly beaten1 teaspoon saltnutmeg to taste1/2 teaspoon black pepper3/4 cup vegetable oil or coconut oil 

Preparation 

Stir together potatoes, scallions, flour, eggs, salt, nutmeg and pepper.Heat oil in a deep 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot. Not smoking, just hot.Spoon 1/8 cup potato mixture for each latke into oil and flatten gently so that they are all about 3 inches in diameter. Reduce heat to medium and cook until golden, which should be around 2-3 minutes for each side. When golden brown, remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.

Makes about 24 Latkes

Serve with Applesauce, cranberry sauce, sour cream and chives or a little bit of maple syrup.

Enjoy!
