Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Latkes

Instead of making sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving, and potato latkes for Chanukah, try these sweet potato butternut squash latkes. You’ll get the flavors of Thanksgiving but the crispy fried texture of Chanukah.

Two tips for latke making:

  1. Stick a small piece of carrot in the oil. The carrot absorbs the burnt taste the oil sometimes gets. When the carrot looks dark ad shriveled, take it out and replace with a new one.
  2. To make the latkes a uniform size, use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop up the batter.

Ingredients:

  • 1 butternut squash
  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ to ¾ cup flour
  • 2 tbsp. kosher salt
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Optional: If you’re serving these at a dairy meal, throw in ½ cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

Dice and sauté the onion in 2 tbsp. olive oil and ¼ tsp. salt. Peel and shred the butternut squash, sweet potatoes and potatoes. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Heat olive oil in a non-stick frying pan. Scoop the batter using a measuring cup for uniformity. Drop into the hot oil (keep the flame on medium-high). Fry each latke until brown on one side—approximately 3-4 minutes. Flip and fry on the other side another minute or two, or until brown, on the second side. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel. The paper towel soaks up the excess oil while keeping the latkes fresh. Repeat until all the batter has been fried.

Serve immediately—that is, if they make them out of the kitchen at all.

Note: Recipe makes approximately 30 medium latkes.

"Diet has the distinction of being the only major determinant of health that is completely under your control. You have the final say over what does and what does not go into your mouth and stomach. You cannot always control the other determinants of health, such as the quality of the air you breathe, the noise you are subjected to, or the emotional climate of your suroundings, but you can control what you eat. It is a shame to squander such a good opportunity to influence your health." ~Andrew Weil, MD
