Sweet Potato and Vegetable Latkas
Recipe type: entree
Cuisine: Holiday
Serves: 4 servings
A departure from traditional latkas but still delicious and perfect for the holidays.
  • 1 potato (any type or a variety of baby potatoes)
  • 1 medium sweet potato or yam
  • 1 turnip
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tsp thyme fresh or dried
  • 1 Tsp Oregano fresh or dried
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Grate the potato, sweet potato, turnip, zucchini, carrot and onion into a bowl. I personally prefer to hand grate them using the smaller grate size rather than put them in a processor because I find it has a better consistency but using a processor is fine too.
  2. Take portions of the mixture (about a cup or so) and place them on a long piece of paper towel. roll and squeeze to get the moisture out. (this is especially important when using other vegetables other than potatoes) Place the mixture back in the bowl after it's been patted down.
  3. Add the two eggs, flour, herbs (you can be creative with these) salt, and pepper. Stir until blended.
  4. Heat a skillet on high or medium high with 1-2 Tbsp of grapeseed oil until it is hot.
  5. Scoop a large spoonful of veggie mixture and flatten into a pancake. Cook until brown on each side.
  6. When the latkes are finished frying place them in a dish lined with paper towels to soak up extra oil.
  7. Add grapeseed oil as needed and finish frying up the mixture.
  8. Serve with sour cream, plain yogurt, and/or applesauce.
