Spinach, Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese Latkes

By: Tamar Genger, Joy of Kosher

Keep it healthy and keep it simple! Not all latkes have to be heartburn inducing. These delicious treats include two healthier options, sweet potato and spinach and with a leaner goat cheese topping!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 36 minutes

Serves: 12

Ingredients:
10 oz. package frozen spinach, thawed and strained
½ cup mashed sweet potato from 1 large sweet potato
2 eggs
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
3 oz. Tnuva Goat Cheese, crumbled
¼ cup panko (optional)
Oil for frying

Preparation:
1. Mix spinach, mashed sweet potato, eggs, salt and pepper, and half of goat cheese until well combined. Mixture will stay together without the breadcrumbs, but some like their latkes a little firmer, so add the panko if desired. Heat oil in frying pan and drop batter by small tablespoons. Cook about 3 minutes until browned, turn over and cook 2 more minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain excess oil.
2. While frying latkes, heat the other half of the goat cheese for about 15 seconds in the microwave. Stir well, adding a little milk if needed to get to a sauce-like consistency.
