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.

too much potassium chan3276 Dietitian comment: The portions are generous. You could make the smaller size and limit to one latke for lower potassium.

Why can't matzo meal be used instead of flour? Dietitian comment: You can certainly make this change with little change in the nutrient content.

While it could use some seasoning, both my husband and I loved it, and he is not a veggie person. He is the cook in the family now, and he said he'd gladly fix it again. It reminded us both of potato latkes. It made a nice dinner with some applesauce.
