Recipe: Baked Parsnip and Apple Latkes


There could be a whole lot of carbs on your Thanksgivukkah table. But this healthier recipe for latkes helps minimize the double-holiday damage.

This year, two meal-centric holidays will fall on the same night to create an evening that’s been aptly named Thanksgivukkah. What that means, in terms of your table, is that along with a turkey (or lentil loaf), stuffing, and mashed potatoes, your meal may very likely include yet another carbo-riffic wallop—latkes.

The traditional fried potato pancake is to Chanukah as the mashed potato is to Thanksgiving. So as much as you may want to omit the not-so-healthy staple over this combo platter holiday, your guests could be super disappointed if you do.

To offer both (without testing the promise of your 4-way stretch yoga pants the next day), try this version from Florence Doueck Chera, of Beyond MyRecipes, who’s known for putting a modern spin on traditional Jewish dishes.

Her recipe brilliantly swaps apples and parsnips for potatoes, and the oven for the deep-fryer. So you and your guests can double up on the holiday without totally over-doing it at the table. —Sarah Sarway
