Parsnip and Sweet Potato Latkes

I love latkes and with a refrigerator full of sweet potatoes I needed to find something new to do so I went to my favorite food blog – {Custom Made} Life. I had everything I needed, minus a parsnip to make the latkes recipe.

The only time consuming part here is shredding the sweet potatoes and parsnip. I reduced the recipe by half but found that I still needed the same amount of wheat flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and egg to have enough consistency to get the shredded vegetables to form a pancake.  I used half an onion, 2 sweet potatoes and 1 parsnip. This made 5 large latkes, plenty for Stephanie and me leaving some for lunch the following day.  The boys would probably eat this but they were already fed and tired when I arrived late from work.

You can serve this as a vegetarian meal with a bed of arugula salad and a light balsamic dressing with a couple latkes per person.  Tonight I went with some grass-fed steaks and fresh green beans.

    YUM!! Do you have a food processor? I use the Cuisinart to shred everything. Takes about 2 minutes. Love what you paired them with. Sounds delicious.
