Skinny and Delicious Party Potato Pancakes (Latkes)


Skinny and Delicious Party Potato Pancakes (Latkes)
These potato pancakes are fabulous whether you celebrate Hanukkah or not! Terrific to serve with beef, chicken, fish or turkey. That said, a wonderful Hanukkah tradition is to serve potato pancakes. Of course, I love the traditional ones but sometimes it’s fun to serve something a little different. These festive ones include potatoes plus healthful shredded carrots, zucchini, and sweet potatoes. They are simply divine.  Each skinny potato pancake has 93 calories and 3 grams of fat. To make these pancakes simple to prepare, be sure to use the shredding blade attachment on your food processor.  You can shred everything by hand but it will take some work!

  • Add 6 pancakes to the hot pan, flatten with a spatula and cook approx 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
