Low fat Vegetable Latkes With Cinnamon Apple Sauce


I love variety in breakfast,with time to spare and recipes in hand,why not make every breakfast an extraordinary one.On breakfast menu today are Latkes, traditionally prepared on Hanukkah,these are the crisp deep fried potato pancakes.I give them a low calorie make over without using eggs,frying in least amount of oil on stove-top or even better baking and casting the white potatoes with some vibrant vegetables to enhance the flavor and nutrition.

Recipe Low fat Eggless Vegetable Latkes
makes 18-20 small latkes
Ingredients
1 medium Sweet potato,peeled and grated
1 big carrot,peeled and grated
1 medium russet potato,peeled and grated
1 large zucchini,grated
1 tablespoon Onions,finely chopped or minced
2 tablespoon wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon(about 4 teaspoons) canola oil or cooking spray if baking

Method
Combine all the grated vegetable in a large mixing bowl.Add flour,season with salt and pepper and stir to distribute evenly.
Heat about about 2 teaspoon of oil in a large non-stick pan or cast iron pan over medium heat.Carefully place about a tablespoon of the vegetable mixture on the hot oil and flatten a little using a spatula.I fried 6-7 at a time in the large pan.Flip after 4-5 minutes until golden brown and repeat on other side.Strain any excess oil on a paper towel.Add about a teaspoon of oil for each batch of latkes.Finish making the latkes with rest of the mixture.Keep warm in oven.Serve with Fat-free sour cream and Cinnamon apple sauce on side.

Baked Latkes
Spoon the vegetable mixture on a lightly greased baking sheet and flatten them a little.Spray a little cooking spray over each of them and bake at 375 oven for 15-20 minutes until the top is crisp and golden brown on top.


To make Cinnamon Apple Sauce for 3-4 servings.
Peel, core and chop 4 Macintosh or Granny smith apples.Cook them with a cup of apple cider,1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest until soft and mushy about 30 minutes.Puree for smoother sauce.
