Make a healthy version of a traditional Hanukkah recipe...

turned into this (ignore the dirty stove):

Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

•1-1/2 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes, peeled

•8 oz (about 2 large) carrots, peeled

•8 oz. (about 2 large) parsnips, peeled

•1/2 cup diced onion

•1 Tbsp. part-skim ricotta cheese

•1/2 cup egg substitute (such as Egg Beaters)

•2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
•Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.
Grate potatoes, carrots and parsnips. Working in small batches, press tightly between paper towels to squeeze out excess moisture. Transfer to a large bowl. Combine with remaining ingredients. Scoop mixture into muffin tins, packing down firmly. Bake 45-55 minutes until golden brown.
Serves 12.

  • Bland...
  • Uninteresting...
  • Went for Subway instead.

  • More potatoes and fewer carrots/parsnips
  • More seasoning (not just S/P)
  • Really press those suckers in the muffin tin
Oh well... I tried a new veggie (parsnips), I posted a recipe, and I made a "healthy" Hanukkah recipe! Points galore! ;-)
