Butternut Squash Latkes

Healthy, gluten free, potato free latke recipe for Hanukkah.

Hanukkah is a day away and that means only one thing: fried food! Lots of it. Yum. I love a good crispy latke, or just about anything fried for that matter.

Below is my favorite recipe for latkes. I have been making these gluten-free latkes for 5 plus years and my family still rejoices each Hanukkah when I serve them.

Butternut Squash Latkes
Serves: 6
  • 4 cups butternut squash, peeled and grated
  • 1 small onion, peeled and grated
  • 3 large eggs, whisked
  • grapeseed oil or olive oil, for frying
  1. In a large bowl make latke batter by mixing together squash, onion and eggs
  2. Use your hands to form batter into 3 inch patties
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil
  4. Fry patties on each side over medium heat until golden brown and crispy
  5. Remove latkes from pan and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil
  6. Repeat Steps 2-4 until batter is used up
  7. Serve with applesauce, sour cream or yogurt

This gluten-free latke recipe is one of my all time favorite dishes. Sweet in flavor and fried to a crisp –what could be better?
