Hanukkah sameach! December 18, 2022 begins the eight days of Hanukkah statement. There are numerous Hanukkah traditions to rejoice over the subsequent eight days, like lighting the menorah, taking part in dreidel, giving items, and consuming scrumptious fried meals! One among my favourite Hanukkah meals are these candy potato beet latkes.

Child J’s dad is Jewish, and I like becoming a member of the celebrations, too. Custom could be tough to comply with if you happen to additionally comply with a plant-based way of life. Many conventional Jewish meals comprise animal product, like brisket. However a pair years in the past I created a vegan Hanukkah menu that we nonetheless use–together with these candy potato beet latkes. 

What’s a latke?

Latkes, pronounced laat-kuhs, are a kind of potato pancake historically made to rejoice Hanukkah. Some comprise cheese or are eaten with bitter cream, so I created this vegan model to keep away from any sort of battle. Latkes are fried, crispy, so flavorful, and eaten with a stunning aspect; applesauce! The earthy beet and savory onion and potato mix completely with the candy applesauce aspect.

My different Hanukkah menu objects are a parsnip bisque with rye croutons, seitan brisket with mushroom gravy, and apple cider baked donuts and cupcakes for dessert. How scrumptious does that meal sound?! Need the recipes? Click on HERE to join my e-newsletter and look ahead to a particular version going out Sunday morning, December 18.
