Thanksgivukah idea #2–sweet potato latkes

A latke is a latke is a latke.

A vegetable is grated, mixed with a binder, formed into patties which are fried.  My latke rainbow was made with four different types of veggies. You can see from the color differences in the picture below,  the type of vegetable is not that important.

Top to bottom, we have sweet potato, zucchini, Chioggia beet, and potato. The black specks on the beet latkes, I’m afraid, are  bits of burned latke, hard to avoid with the beet’s high sugar content.

So, grate some sweet potatoes  make sweet potato latkes, and serve with cranberry sauce on Thanksgivukah. Light the candles and play some dreidel after dessert.

May your turkey be moist, and your dreidels all land on gimmel!
