Gluten Free Butternut Squash Latkes

Written by chanie on December 11th, 2012

Latkes. We can’t seem to get enough of their crispy, fried goodness! I don’t know about you, but I can eat latkes all Chanukah long. As long as I switch up the flavors, I’m good. Butternut squash latkes has become a family favorite in our home. They’re light, mildly sweet, and lend themselves well to all sorts of seasonings. We like them best straight up – good old butternut squash, onion, egg and some simple salt seasoning, but feel free to spruce them up with curry, paprika, cumin, or your favorites.

Because I prefer to prepare these gluten free latkes with simple flavors, I spice up the garnishes instead. Ginger applesauce and curried sour cream are the perfect complements to the butternut squash. Top them off with some scallions for latke perfection on a plate.

What are some of your favorite latke varieties? I’d love to hear! Share them in the comments below!

    these look amazing! i love butternut squash and can only imagine that i’d love these, too!

  2. butternut squash is my favorite! i just made a soup with it today. I love the idea of using it for latkes. I think I’ll use this next year, since my son broke my food processor, and I don’t think I want to grate squash by hand.

    Great idea, I’ve tried sweet potato ones and loved them, this is even better.

    Love the ginger applesauce. I’ve made similar latkes with sweet potato, never with squash — but I always have a squash in the house, so this is even better! Happy Hanukkah.

    This is such a great take on a classic!

  6. I made these too and even added some rutabaga, they are really good.
