Some days, I make things that look great but taste a little bit meh.
And other days I cook something that tastes amazing but doesn’t look like much. And today is one of those days. It’s very hard to make latkes look sexy. But they taste just wonderful.
Classic latkes are made from potatoes, onions and flour, but we are on a low carb diet, so these are not for us.
But, no matter, we can make do with a few low carb substitutes. For the potatoes, I used a mixture of daikon radishes and parsnips. And instead of flour, I used oat fiber and flaxseed meal. The result is a very tasty fried latke with only 5g net carbs.
So please, I beg of you, don’t judge this book by it’s cover.
