Sweet Potato Latkes

Yield: 16 to 17 latkes
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes


For the latkes
1 ½ pounds celery root, peeled and shredded (about 2 small)
1 ½ pounds sweet potato, peeled and shredded (about 2 small)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 teaspoons Thrive Market Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Garlic Powder
½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Cumin
⅓ cup chives, minced
3 tablespoons rosemary, finely chopped
2 to 3 tablespoons Thrive Market Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, plus more as needed

For serving
1 cup Thrive Market Organic Applesauce


Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Mix together celery root, sweet potato, eggs, salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, chives, and rosemary in a large bowl. Press well with back of spoon to remove excess liquid; drain.

Heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium-high heat. Scoop a large tablespoon of latke mixture from bowl onto skillet and carefully press down with a spatula. Fry 3 minutes, or until edges are golden brown; flip and cook for 2-3 minutes more.

Repeat with remaining mixture, adding additional oil as needed. Place cooked latkes on baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Serve with a dollop of applesauce alongside.
