If They're Nut Latkes, What are They?


It's the first night of Hanukka and I wanted to make Latkes, but I can't eat potatoes (they're nightshades). So I took my 3 Tablespoon measure and took 3 Tablespoons each of Ground Sesame, Hazelnut "flour" and Hemp Seed. I added a teaspoon of my spice mix, a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of mushroom powder. I added enough filtered water to make a batter. I then added a handful and a half of shredded carrots (multi-colored -- I get it at Shop Rite). I shaped it into 3 patties and fried them in olive oil, flipping once.

I also took an avocado, added 1/4 teaspoon of my spice mix and a bit of lime juice and a sprinkle of olive oil and mashed it all together (I can't eat apple sauce either, right now).

I put the patties on paper towel and put the avocado spread on. They were delicious. I think I may try it again tomorrow night :-)
