|The latke accompanies any holiday décor.|
For the uninitiated, latkes are potato pancakes, essentially. This recipe is inspired by the latkes made by my best friend's mom (she liked to throw in carrots), and they're sure to be a delight no matter what holiday you choose (or don't choose) to celebrate.
|Everything together. It's a metaphor.|
Peel and wash 3 russet potatoes and 2 carrots and grate them using the largest holes. (Or, to save time and muscle, use a food processor!) Also grate 2 small onions (or one regular-sized onion). Put the potato-carrot-onion mix into a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Let that sit for a bit.
Put a pan over medium heat and drop in 2 tbsp. vegetable oil.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a Prosperous New Year, and here's to a little more Peace on Earth than we currently have.
