Latkes with maple miso apple sauce 30 minutes

Make latkes with just two ingredients - Potatoes and onions! The toppings are the ones that will add all of the flavour the latkes I made are topped with balsamic marinated beets and maple-miso apple sauce.

Latkes are fried potato pancakes seasoned and topped with various condiments like sour cream cheese or apples! I like fruits over savoury dishes so I opted to have apples on top.

If you don't have apple sauce at home but have a bunch of apples you can make your own. It doesn't take that much time! Just peel your apples and cut them into small cubes put in a pot and add water. Don't cover the apples make it so the waters sits just below the top layer. Mix in a splash lemon juice and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cover let cook until the apples are softened. Remove from heat and mash with a fork!

There you have it! Unsweetened apple sauce. Did you know you could also make jelly with the apple peels and the cores? You can also make apple tea and apple cider vinegar check out Little house living to find out how.

For the latkes i didn't want sweetened apple sauce but i did want to add an extra taste. I like mixing miso in everything so decided to give it a go. Tested a smaller portion in a separate bowl and DAYUM but i did want to add an extra taste. I like mixing miso in everything so decided to give it a go. Tested a smaller portion in a separate bowl and DAYUM it tastes good. It's even better with a bit of maple syrup the sweet helps to make the saltiness of the miso less overwhelming. Important to note that i used white miso less salty then red miso.

The inspiration for Latkes came from Pavani from Cook's hideout. Her recipe is completely egg-free although i didn't feel the need to add flour or the 'starch' to make it hold together.

I love simple solutions.
