Root Vegetable Latkes
Russet Potato 8oz
Sweet Potato 8oz
White Onion 4oz
Carrot 8oz
Eggs 3 eggs
Kosher Salt 1 tsp
Cornstarch 6 tbsp
Sunflower Oil 4 tbsp
Sour Cream 2 tbsp
Dill or Scallions 1 tbsp
1. Grate russet potato, sweet potato, beets, onion, and carrot into a medium-sized bowl. 
2. Place the grated vegetables into a kitchen towel and squeeze out as much of the excess water as possible. This will help it get nice and crispy when you go to start frying them!
3. Discard any of the water removed and place back into the bowl. 
4. Now add your eggs, kosher salt, and potato starch until fully combined. Set aside.
5. Heat pan to medium-high heat. Once hot, add sunflower oil. Scoop mixture into hot pan and press down, forming patties. Let fry until golden brown, then flip and repeat on the other side.
6. Once fully cooked and golden, add to a cooling rack with sheet tray underneath to catch the extra oil. Add flaky salt, a small dollop of sour cream, and herbs for a tasty garnish. Enjoy!
