Latkas- I think are fun to make- they are one of those foods that everyone seems to like. Last year- roughly this time I discovered Sunchokes for the first time. I love love love them. Their flavor I think is true to their name- think artichoke- but then they are starchy like potatoes. Yummm. I find they work well in almost any recipe that you would use potatoes.
Not only are they tasty- but they offer some pretty great health benefits. Sunchokes are rich in Inulin- which is a carbohydrate linked with good intestinal health. Plus they are high in Iron, Vitamin C, Phosphorus and Potassium.
So back to the latkas- I love them and I figured sunchokes might do fantastic as their base. According to my husband- I was right :) These are Egg Free- I recently discovered that along with Gluten and Dairy- that eggs and I just don't do well together- so to your benefit everything from here on out will be egg free.
These latkas taste FANTASTIC with apple sauce. or.. if you feel like getting creative make some pear sauce! (I'll be posting my recipe for this soon) My husband wasn't as into the applesauce idea- and he ate his with ketchup- either dipping vice is a good choice!
Enough Talk- Here's the link to the Recipe:
