WHY WE LOVE THEM: Four decisive flavors – feta, leeks, yams and parsnips – soften together into sweet, exquisite, totally addictive flapjacks. To dress them up, sprinkle on extra feta or swipe with creme fraiche, or go all out with a fresh apple relish or small heap of lemony plate of mixed greens.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • medium-sized leeks, washed and thinly sliced
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes (usually about 1 large)
  • 1 pound parsnips (number will vary depending upon size)
  • 1/2teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 4 ounces feta, crumbled (a creamy French or Israeli style is nice)
  • eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4cup matzo meal
  • 3/4cup canola oil for frying (amount will vary depending upon how many skillets you want to have going)

 

Directions

Liquefy the margarine (or warmth the olive oil) in a pan over a medium warmth. Include the leeks and a touch of salt and sauté, blending once in a while, until the leeks have mellowed and are starting to shading (around 10 minutes).

While the leeks are cooking, wash and strip the yam and parsnips. Mesh on the coarse openings of a case grater, and spot in a huge bowl (in the event that you have no tolerance for hand-grinding, you can utilize the destroying plate on a food processor, yet place about ¼ of the blend back in the bowl of the processor with the normal edge and heartbeat a couple of times). Include the salt, pepper, nutmeg, feta, egg and matzo feast. Mix to join. Blend in the cooked leeks.

Pour the canola oil to a profundity of 1/2-inch in a griddle—you can utilize the dish utilized for the leeks, and extra skillet on the off chance that you’d prefer to make brisk work of it. Warmth the oil over a medium fire until hot—in the event that you drop in a sliver of the latke blend, it should bubble overwhelmingly. Shape around 3 tablespoons of the latke blend into a round shape (I like to pack a 1/4 cup measure generally full), and spot in the oil. Level marginally to frame a little hotcake. Rehash the same number of times as your skillet space permits. Cook the latkes until all around sautéed, 5 to 7 minutes, at that point flip and earthy colored the opposite side. These latkes are more fragile than standard potato flapjacks (particularly when warm), so be sensitive. At the point when the subsequent side has cooked, place on a plate fixed with earthy colored paper, stacking varying. On the off chance that you need to be extra-acceptable, every so often strain out any rebel bits that have coasted into the oil before they consume (or leave them in, for a taste nearer to what grandmother would have made). Serve. Or on the other hand…

In case you’re not serving on the double, layer the cooled latkes in a fixed holder with material between the layers, and freeze. To serve, preheat the stove to 375° F. Spot the latkes on a treat sheet (you can put them on a rack on head of a treat sheet for a crisper outcome, however as a rule the sheet is fine for me), and cook until they have shaded more and are warmed through and sizzling (10 to 15 minutes).
