Sweet Potato and Pear Latkes

This twist on traditional latkes uses sweet potatoes to add rich color and nutrition to your table. The vibrant orange seen in sweet potatoes, pumpkins and carrots comes from beta-carotene, an antioxidant phytochemical with cancer-fighting power. Fresh pears add fiber and a natural sweetness. Replace the whole eggs with whites and the frying pan with the oven for a special holiday meal without the grease or guilt. Serve them up with a dollop of sour cream or unsweetened applesauce on the side for dipping.


2 lbs. sweet potatoes (about 2 medium sized potatoes)
2 Bosc pears
1 medium onion
4 egg whites
1/3 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Extra light virgin olive oil, coconut oil, peanut oil or other healthy oil (NOT canola, soy or corn oil)
Sour cream (optional)*
Unsweetened applesauce (optional)
1/2 cup dried cranberries, for garnish (optional)

*For a healthy sour cream, see:

Homemade Sour Cream

(As always, for the healthiest recipe, use organic content whenever possible.)


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and place two baking sheets in the oven.

2. Peel the potatoes; peel and core the pears. Grate each using a food processor. Strain any excess liquid. Grate the onion. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites, bread crumbs, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Stir in the potatoes, pear and onion. Mix until coated.

4. Remove the hot baking sheets from the oven and coat lightly thoroughly with healthy oil of your choice.  Spoon latke mixture onto sheets, forming 2-inch patties. Bake until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes per side, turning once with a spatula.

5. Serve with sour cream and/or warm applesauce, plus a sprinkle of dried cranberries on top of each serving, if desired.

Makes 8 servings, 3 latkes each.
