Healthy Hanukkah Recipes Rose Reisman

Light Latkes

Yes, you can make latkes lighter! Try my Three Root Vegetable Latkes recipe. You can make latkes savory or sweet with endless combinations of toppings including:

  • Sour cream, caviar and chives
  • Cream cheese and smoked salmon
  • Chunky apple sauce
  • Roasted red peppers and goat cheese
  • Sunny side up eggs
  • Caramelized onions
  • Guacamole and tomatoes

Apricot Jam Cranberry Rugelach

Rugelach is a divine dessert, but traditionally loaded with fat, as it is crisp and buttery. My light Apricot Jam Cranberry recipe still gives you a mix of a flaky crust and creamy inside, but with less fat!
