Parsnip-Potato Latkes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Bergy

Nice change from potato latkes. The parsnips add a lot of flavor. The potato starch is added to compensate for the additional moisture from the parsnips and ensures they get crispy.

I am always looking for recipes with parsnips. These made a nice change to the potato latkes I often serve when we have roast chicken and I will certainly make them again. Thank you Bergy.
