Today is the first day of the Hebrew month of Kislev. Although Chanukah is over three weeks away, I always look forward to it eagerly, and decided to start posting about it already….
Chanukah is my favorite holiday for a number of reasons, and the great foods we eat during the holiday heads the list. Although I live in Israel, and sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts) are the traditional food for Chanukah, latkes are still my favorite.
For those of you who want recipes, take a look at the following:
This is a classic recipe for latkes. For a sweet dairy version (no potatoes here!) you can try these cheese latkes. Pumpkin is the main ingredient for this unusual version. I’ve had these zucchini latkes – worth a try!
These latkes are great on their own, but they are even better with toppings. In our house we cannot decide which is better, sour cream or applesauce, so we usually alternate. Here are some creative recipes for toppings, including both sweet and savory flavors.
Which toppings do you use in your house?
