Easy latkes packed with carrots and russet potatoes. Serve with chunky applesauce.


  • 2 1/2 cups russet potatoes, unpeeled, scrubbed, and shredded
  • 1/2 cup grated onion
  • 1/3 cup peeled and shredded carrot
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 Tbs fresh, chopped chives
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil, divided


  • Immediately place shredded potatoes in a bowl of ice water to keep potatoes from discoloring; let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place the onion, carrot, flour, chives, salt, pepper, egg, and egg white in a medium bowl and stir well.
  • Drain the potatoes and squeeze out moisture; stir into egg mixture.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Spoon about 1/4 cup of potato mixture for each pancake into skillet, cooking four at a time.
  • Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, flattening with the back of a spatula and cooking until golden brown and crisp on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining oil and potatoes.
  • Serve immediately with chunky applesauce and low-fat sour cream.
