Helpful hints

  • Potato latkes (pancakes), traditionally served during Hanukkah, contain over 600 mg potassium for a comparable serving unless the potatoes are soaked or boiled to reduce potassium. Broccoli-Onion Latkes are a good low-potassium alternative.
  • The latkes taste best if eaten immediately.
