Apple and Carrot Latkes with NUTELLA
INGREDIENTS for 4 portions
  • 1 cup grated green apple, peeled and cored
  • 1 cup grated carrot, peeled
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp cottage cheese
  • 4 tbsp Nutella®
  • Chopped pecans, garnish
Step 1
Place grated apple and carrot in a medium mixing bowl and toss with lemon juice.
Step 2
In a small bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and baking powder.
Step 3
In the medium bowl, toss the dry mixture with the apples and carrots, coating them evenly.
Step 4
Whisk the egg in a small bowl and then stir into apple and carrot mixture.
Step 5
Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium-high with butter. Drop 4 even sized dollops of apple and carrot batter in little piles, gently pressing them flat with a spatula. Lower the heat to medium and fry until they are nicely golden brown, about 5 minutes, then flip and continue to cook until they are browned and crisp. Serve warm, with a dollop of cottage cheese, a spread of Nutella® and chopped pecans!
