“Mother, I do not need to rejoice Christmas this yr.”
“Um, what? Why not?”
“As a result of Hanukkah meals is so significantly better than Christmas meals.”
“Oh,” Phew. We do not have to take down the tree or blow out the arrival candles. I simply have to learn to make Jewish meals. I can do this.
I really like that my child has this thirst for information of different cultures. He respects it and I am so pleased with him. So, after he defined what he realized in Kindergarten in regards to the origin of the Menorah (one thing I had by no means realized), the Star of David and dreidels, he revealed his menu of selection:
Chocolate cash, latkes, applesauce and donuts. (Donuts? That is Hanukkah meals!? I completely would have banked on my NYU dormmate Asaf’s leftovers had I recognized that. His dad was a rabbi! Grr.)
Anyway, I narrowed it all the way down to one thing that a minimum of resembles paleo — Candy Potato Latkes with Cranberry Apple Sauce. They turned out so wonderful that I will petition the Vatican to make them a Christmas meals.
2 medium candy potatoes, shredded
Three inexperienced onions, chopped
1/four cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon salt
half teaspoons black pepper
duck fats or coconut oil, for frying
Whisk collectively the inexperienced onions, eggs, coconut flour, salt and pepper in a big bowl. Stir within the shredded candy potatoes, mixing properly. In a big skillet, warmth a pair tablespoons of duck fats or coconut oil over medium warmth. Seize a handful of the candy potato combination and squish it right into a flat pancake patty. Repeat in a single layer within the pan. In 2-Three minutes, when the skin of the latke begin to flip golden brown, flip them over and cook dinner them for an additional couple of minutes. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Serve with cranberry applesauce.
