Celebrate Hanukkah . . . with Carrot Parsnip Latkes!
What is on the menu for Hanukkah at your house?  LATKES!!  Doesn’t everyone just love potato latkes?  Well, I do, for sure.  But this year, why not break tradition?  Instead of grating potatoes try grating carrots and parsnips.  You might just wonder why you have only made your latkes with potatoes for all these years.
It’s a very busy week, so let’s get into the kitchen and start cooking up a traditional recipe with some untraditional ingredients!

2 large carrots, peeled and grated
2 large parsnips, peeled and grated
1 large egg, whisked
2 tablespoons flour (I used spelt)
1/2 teaspoon salt
oil
Grate the carrots and parsnips on the large side of a box grater.
Place all the ingredients except the oil in a bowl to combine.
Add a thin coating of oil to the bottom of your pan at medium heat.
Place a dollop (about 2 tablespooons) of the mixture in the pan and press to flatten.
Cook latkes for about 3 minutes per side.
Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
EAT . . . of course!
