Sweet Potato and Carrot Latkes

Sweet Meets Savory in These Sweet Potato and Carrot Latkes

You don't have to celebrate Hanukkah to love a good latke, and you'll love this twist on the classic latke recipe. Although oil is a huge part of the tradition, drenching potatoes in a ton of oil isn't exactly the healthiest thing for you, so check out this recipe. It doesn't involve any deep-frying, and it mixes grated carrots with sweet potatoes.

Sweet Potato and Carrot Latkes

Ingredients

1 russet potato
1 sweet potato
1 carrot
2 eggs
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup canola oil

Directions

  1. Grate the potato, sweet potato, and carrot in a food processor. Move grated veggies to a colander to allow the excess moisture to drain out. Gently press the veggies down to encourage more liquid to drain out.
  2. Move the mixture into a large bowl and add the eggs, flour, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. Add large spoonfuls of the batter to the pan and shape them into pancakes that are about 1/4 inch thick. Cook each side until golden brown, about five to eight minutes per side.
  4. Place a paper towel on a plate, and put the cooked latkes on top so the extra oil can be absorbed.
  5. Serve warm with ketchup or applesauce.

i've never made them with sweet potatoes before but i guess that there could be something there to consider. i've done the carrots in them though and sometimes onions, but never with a different potato. i like the thought - i just wonder if it'll be too sweet for my taste. i might try it tonight when we make them. i guess it just means that i will have to make another trip to the store.

Yum. :) Thanks, Fit. What's also really good, although obviously wouldn't be latkes at all, is to mash the potatoes and sweet potatoes first, mix them with the carrot, eggs, a bit of low-fat cheese and fresh chopped herbs, and make potato cakes. You can dry fry them on a non-stick pan for a few minutes on each side until they brown. Great way to use up leftover mashed veg.
