Top your latkes off with one of these tasty combinations. Mix and match to find your favorite!
Not all of our holiday traditional foods are healthy, but we certainly cannot imagine our celebrations without them. Having a healthy holiday isn’t about depriving ourselves of those comfort, once-a-year foods we love.
Instead, try to incorporate fruits and vegetables into the dishes you serve to create a balanced, delicious meal. Try these 9 fresh toppings for your Hanukkah Latkes this year.
Or, if you’re looking for an equally-delicous but slightly healthier version of Latkes to try out, this baked version uses a mix of cauliflower and potatoes plus some cheesy goodness!
Applesauce & Cinnamon
Opt for no-added-sugar applesauce or make your own to control the sugar content. Although you can make applesauce from any variety, use a sweet apple like Gala to decrease the amount of added sugar needed. Then add a sprinkle of cinnamon!
This fresh, sweet and delicious salsa finds a new home on top of your potato pancake. It will surely become a favorite topping of your guests, young and old.
To sneak even more veggies onto the plate, grate zucchini into your next batch of pancakes. Topped with tomato bruschetta, you’ll be transformed back to your beloved summer garden.
Cream Cheese & Lox
This classic combo is always a favorite. Spread a little cream cheese on top of your latkes and top with a slice of lox (aka smoked salmon). You can even add a sprinkle of green onions or fresh dill.
Goat Cheese & Honey
Creamy goat cheese is make for topping latkes! Add a drizzle of honey, and if you’re feeling adventurous, some thinly sliced pears.
Cranberry Sauce with Orange Zest
Whether using homemade or canned cranberry sauce, jazz it up a bit with some fresh orange zest. Yum!
Avocado & Fried Egg
Move over avocado toast! Latkes become a perfect breakfast with a little smashed avocado and topped with a fried (or poached!) egg.
Nut Butter & Sliced Apples
Take a sweeter approach to latkes with a smear of your favorite peanut or nut butter and a few thinly sliced apples.
Greek Yogurt with Dill and Cucumber
Easy to make and a perfect way to brighten up your potato pancake. Mix fresh dill into fat-free Greek yogurt with a splash of lemon juice and salt & pepper to taste. Add a few thinly cut cucumber slices for some extra crunch!
Spend time in the kitchen with your family this holiday and enjoy the traditional meals you grew up with. Just remember to add fruits and vegetables to brighten up your dishes!
