'The Kitchn' recently published a recipe for crispy parsnip latkes. With the holiday season upon us, many people are getting ready to celebrate Hanukkah. This recipe offers a delicious take on a traditional Hanukkah dish.

Latkes are vegetable-based pancakes often enjoyed during Hanukkah. While the dish is traditionally made with potatoes, other root vegetables can also be used to give the dish a slightly different flavor. This recipe used parsnips to produce a slightly sweet vegetable pancake. The mixture is then finished with a splash of lemon juice to bring out the vegetable's citrus notes. The end result is a sweet and starchy side dish with a delightfully crispy texture.

The parsnip latkes are an excellent option for those who are looking to add some variety to their annual Hanukkah feast.
