The Lighter Side of Latkes

If you plan to serve potato pancakes for Hanukkah, you can make a super-nutritious version with this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Sweet Potato and Pear Latkes.

These delicious low-calorie treats are sweetened naturally with pears, which add cancer-fighting fiber to that of the whole-wheat breadcrumbs, onions and sweet potatoes to total 5 grams in each serving. Garnishing your latkes with unsweetened applesauce, dried cranberries and sour cream keeps them low-calorie and light.

Beta-carotene — a powerful antioxidant phytochemical that protects against cancer — is usually found in orange vegetables, but is present in green broccoli, too. It makes sweet potatoes a more nutritious choice than white potatoes.

This recipe uses 4 egg whites instead of whole eggs in the latkes, as well as monounsaturated canola oil cooking spray so the saturated fat is kept to zero.

Enjoy these and other healthy recipes from the AICR Test Kitchen. Click here to subscribe to our weekly Health-e-Recipes.
