We are serving a latkes buffet for the first night of Chanukah and I want to include this recipe. It sounds very interesting! Not only for Chanukah, especially if the vegetables can't be seen, perfect for picky eaters! Coastal Living Magazine, 11/2007 edition. Chef Judy Gallagher. I allowed for resting time.

These are really delicious. Served with a brisket and they complimented it nicely. The addition of the sweet potato is a nice touch, but I bought the pale type and I think I should have used the dark orange type, which are called (mistakenly) yams. That would have given the color in the title. Will do that next time, or if not avaialable, I will try a carrot for color. Thanks for posting this!
