Grate your own Yukon Gold potatoes by hand and use good old peanut oil...the best!

I think what a lot of folks love ignoring at this time of year is the fact that the mandated oil (yes, it's the oil that's the traditional food, hence folks eat sufganiot instead of latkes, if you're Sephardic) can be consumed in the form of .... drumroll please ... salad dressing. :)

I have made latkes with grated zucchini and there were very colorful and tasty. Many of these suggestions are ocmmon sense substitutions but I disagree with not using coonut oil. Doctors are now touting its benefits right alonngside olive oil and healthier than safflower and some of the other cousins to it. Plus it adds great flavor to many desserts and sweets.

We used a canola/olive oil blend and the latkes tasted great! Yay for the miracle of (healthy) oil!

Great article! I love the idea of including eggplant and zucchini in latkes--and I think I may try sweet potato latkes tonight!

Excellent article. I am not Jewish either but appreciate the calorie counts. Since getting Sparked, I have found that I love to cook. I had potato latkes this week and I even made some homemade borscht to go with it. I am taking it this weekend when I go camping.

Thanks for the calorie count! It will keep me mindful -- and Blintzes, maybe I'll make those tonight! WITH salad and veggies. Thanks!

Manischewitz makes salt-free matzoh meal. I've been using it throughout the year; if the chicken soup is a little salted, the knaidlach really doesn't have to be.

Chag Sameach, everyone. Thanks, Coach Nicole. :)
