Take your latkes to the next level with this scrumptious recipe from Ahara cofounder, Andrea Shuman.

 

Ingredients:

2 large russet potatoes  

1 large white onion

¼-½ cup Flour to thicken

1 large egg

Salt and Pepper to taste

½ cup ghee (we recommend brown butter)

*Traditionally served with applesauce and sour-cream

 

Instructions:

  • Shred potatoes, place in colander to begin draining process
  • Finely mince onion
  • Mix potato and onion together in colander (option to use cheese cloth here) and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This part is key for correct consistency of pancake
  • Once as much moisture is removed as possible, put in mixing bowl and add salt
  • Add egg and mix well with hands
  • Start with a 1/4 cup of flour and mix in. Then add in 1-2 tsp at a time of flour and mix with hands until coated and not dripping. You should be able to ball up a bit and flatten in your hands
  • Heat ghee over medium in frying pan, do not allow to smoke 
  • Carefully add pancakes (the ghee can get feisty, if you have a splatter guard, use it). Ghee should cover at least half the depth of the pancake.
  • Cook until golden brown on each side
  • Remove to plate covered in a few paper towels to absorb ghee

Alternate Air-fryer Method: Put flattened pancakes in shallow pan and pour melted ghee over and carefully place in air fryer. *We do, however, recommend the traditional method:)

Buckwheat is a wonderfully versatile grain that can be made either sweet or savory. Its warming and drying qualities make it ideal for watery and earthy Springtime. It is high in iron and magnesium, nourishing the blood and the muscles. The apple is great for thinning the bile and cleansing the liver. This oatmeal with oomph leaves you feeling full and nourished but not weighed down. This is my breakfast most days in the Springtime and I love it!
