Root Vegetable Latkes with Homemade Apple Pear Sauce

Yield: 8-10 small latkes and 1 ½ cups applesauce

Ingredients for latkes:

3 cups root vegetables, shredded and peeled (we use a combo of 1 beet, 1 parsnip, 1 potato, and 1 carrot) 
1 small onion 
¾ tsp sea salt 
½ tsp pepper 
½ tsp garlic powder
4 tbsp chickpea flour
2 cups olive oil, for frying

Ingredients for Apple Pear Sauce:

2 apples, peeled and chopped finely (we like gala or honeycrisp) 
1 pear, peeled and chopped finely 
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 ½ tsp cinnamon 
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar 
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
1 cup apple juice or water
Maple syrup or stevia to your taste

Instructions for Latkes:

In a food processor or by hand grate the root vegetables and onion.  Place half of the grated root vegetables on a paper towel and squeeze most but not all of the moisture out. Repeat with the remaining half. Place the root vegetables and onion into a medium-sized bowl and add the sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chickpea flour. Mix thoroughly.

In a medium skillet, pour olive oil until it is ½ inch deep. Heat until simmering. Form the mixture into small patties (if the patties don’t hold together, add a bit more flour). Place the patties into the oil. After golden (3-5 minutes) on one side flip them and continue to cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until golden and crispy on the other side. Keep the latkes warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve. Top with Apple Pear sauce.

Instructions for Apple Pear Sauce:

In a medium saucepan, mix apples, pear, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, pepper, and apple juice or water. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the fruit breaks down. Sweeten to taste if desired. Remove from heat and place mixture into a high speed blender and blend until almost smooth, or skip this step and leave it chunky. Serve with the Root Vegetable Latkes.
