View Full Version : Jewish "soul food" a la raw?
11-15-2004, 10:56 AM
I'll get through Thanksgiving w/out too much trouble...but Chanukah is another story! Lots of delectable, nostalgic foods that tug at my heartstrings and taste buds...In order to get through it, I MUST have my own raw versions of treats at the ready. Any Jewish soul sisters (or brothers) out there who share my dilemma? I'm 20 days raw and doing great but somehow the words "raw" and "potato" don't inspire me...So how am I going to have my potato latkes with delicious raw applesauce this year, as I'm frying everyone else's? Help!

I was planning on frying up a huge batch at one time and freezing portions of it for every night of chanukkah so that I don't have to go through the dreaded deed more than once.
There's got to be some kind of a dehydrated version, maybe mincing potatoes really fine and soaking in salt water to get rid of the starch would do the trick? I'll do some expirementing and get back to you on it.
I made some latkes last week from an old mix sitting around. I healthed it up, adding shredded carrots and green onion. It was a struggle but it made my family very happy!

I don't know if these are anything like the latkes you're talking about... but maybe you can modify it to suit you?
sorry, can't remember where I found this one so I can't give credit to whoever made this recipe....
Spinach and Potato Latkes
1 cup macadamia nuts, soaked 8 hours and drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Celtic sea salt
½ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 cup Rejuvalac or filtered water
1 cup pine nuts, soaked 2 hours and drained
6 cups spinach, chopped fine
1 onion, chopped fine
6 small red potatoes, grated
1 teaspoon paprika
Place macadamia nuts, garlic, salt, lemon juice and Rejuvelac or water into blender and blend well until mixture is smooth.
Add pine nuts to mixture and blend well.
Fold the nut mixture into spinach. Add onions and potatoes, stirring well.
Drop by spoonfuls on a teflex sheet.
Sprinkle paprika on latkes.
Dehydrate for 4 hours.

That recipe that Tanja posted is EXCELLENT! Credit goes to Jackie Graff. I made it with grated jerusalem artichokes instead of potato, and it was MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Let me know how it is with potato, if you try it!
