Paleo Recipes for Modern Day Cavemen

Turnip Latke

Day 2 of our food challenge and I already need variety. As much as I love eggs in the morning, I get a bit tired of having them every morning for breakfast. So I had leftovers and made this as a side dish. It turned out great! Turnips are low in calories, high in Vitamin C and fiber.  Try it for a potato alternative!

Makes 2 latkes
1 turnip bulb
1 egg
salt & pepper

With a knife – simply cut/peel off the turnip skin. Then using a large grater, take the turnip and grate it.

Once you have the grated turnip, take a paper towel and squeeze out the excess liquid.  In a medium bowl, mix the grated turnip, egg and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

In a heated pan, add some olive oil and fry the latkes for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown on each side. This recipe makes 2 latkes so spoon out half the bowl and it makes one nice sized latke.  I loved how simple and easy this recipe is.  You can serve with some apple butter and cinnamon or chives and sour cream (if you’re lacto-paleo like me). Best served immediately.  Enjoy!
