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
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!
