 Adding zuchinni into plain potato latkes adds an extra boost of  antioxidants such as Vitamin C ,  Vitamin A, and Manganese. Try this no fail latkes recipe from Yael at Culinary Kosher, a great resource for Kosher recipes! p.s.  for rave reviews, try serving them hot off the pan. (but for a lower fat version make sure to blot them with a paper towel for a minute or two!) Marlene M.

makes 36 medium latkes

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cumin seeds
  • 12 oz  butternut squash – peeled, seeded and coarsely grated (use medium hand-grater or food processor shredder attachment) (2 3/4 cups)
  • 1 medium leek – white and light green parts only, halved, thoroughly washed and cut crosswise in 1/4” slices (1 1/4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons unbleached all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 large eggs – lightly beaten
  • olive oil for the pan
  • cilantro leaves as garnish
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Step 1: Heat a small, heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds and cook until they turn dark-brown and are fragrant — about 2 minutes — shaking the pan constantly and taking care not to burn the seeds. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

Step 2: Place the butternut squash and leek in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with the cumin seeds, flour, salt and pepper. Toss well. Add the eggs and stir until well blended.

Step 3: Heat a large heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to generously cover the pan. Using a dessert spoon, drop two teaspoons’ worth of batter into the hot oil for each latke. Sauté for 2 to 3 minutes until golden-brown. Flip the latkes and sauté for another 2 minutes until golden-brown. (You may have to lower the heat as the pan gets hot: the latkes shouldn’t turn brown too fast and the oil should never come to smoking point.) Transfer to a platter lined with a paper towel. Repeat until the butternut squash mixture has all been used up, adding more oil to the pan as necessary.

Cook’s note: The latkes can be prepared up to 2 hours ahead and kept at room temperature. To re-heat, place on a jellyroll pan and warm in a 400°F preheated oven for 6 to 7 minutes until sizzling and proceed with step 4.

Step 4: Place the latkes on a platter. Spoon a dollop of sour cream on top of each latke. Garnish with a cilantro leaf and serve immediately.

No-Fry Sweet Potato Latkes on Chanuka

No-Fry Sweet Potato Latkes on Chanuka

4 Comments 29 November 2011

You don’t have to feel like you gained 10 pounds this Hanuka. Try these low fat healthy sweet potato latkes and enjoy every minute of  Hanuka with your kids. Try to sneak in whole wheat pastry flour instead of the white flour and this may become an all year round treat for your family!

My sister in law made  this great latkes version and she found that it worked better on parchment paper rather than tin foil.

No-Fry Latkes with special permission by Norene Gilletz from her fabulous cookbook Healthy Helpings.

Enjoy!

One no-fry latke contains just 1 gram of fat, compared to 2.7 grams for the fried version!

  • 1 very large sweet potato,plus 2 Idaho potatoes
  • 4 tsp. canola or vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 clove garlic, if desired
  • 1 tbsp. fresh dill (or 1 tsp. dried)
  • 1 egg & 2 egg whites (or 2 eggs),lightly beaten
  • 1/4 c. flour (white or whole wheat)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

*1. Place oven racks on the lowest and middle positions in your oven. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spray each sheet of parchment paper lightly with non-stick spray, then brush each sheet with 1 tsp. of oil. (This provides a crispy exterior to the latke.)

2. Peel potatoes or scrub them well if you don’t want to peel them. Grate potatoes. (The processor does this quickly.) Transfer them to another bowl. Use the processor to finely mince onion, garlic and dill. Add potatoes, egg, egg whites and remaining 2 tsp. of oil to the processor. Mix using quick on/off turns. Add remaining ingredients and mix briefly. If over-processed, potatoes will be too fine.

3. Drop mixture by rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Flatten slightly with the back of the spoon to form latkes. Bake uncovered at 450°F for 10 minutes, or until bottoms are nicely browned and crispy. Turn latkes over. Transfer pan from the upper rack to the lower rack and vice versa. Bake about 8 to 10 minutes longer, or until brown. Best when served immediately.

*Note: Alternatively, line the pan with parchment paper, such as Chefs Select. Bake uncovered at 425°F for 12 minutes. Ensure the paper does not extend beyond the baking sheet or touch the walls of the oven.

Yield: 2 dozen medium latkes or 6 dozen minis.

Serve with applesauce, low-fat sour cream or yogurt topped with minced lox and chives. Latkes freeze well.
