NEW YORK (JTA) — The sweetest time of year is upon us, quite literally: It’s Rosh Hashanah. And while I know most families have their standard holiday dishes they make year after year, sometimes it’s nice to swap in a new appetizer, alternating main dish or quick but delicious new dessert to serve.

Trade in your beet and apple salad for some sweet beet latkes. There’s no reason to save latkes for Chanukah. And beets are actually a traditional food to enjoy for the New Year, which makes these appetizers the perfect symbolic, sweet and satisfying dish to serve at the holidays.

Wishing you and your family a sweet and delicious new year.

Instructions
  1. Peel beets, sweet potato and potato. Cut each in half. In 3 or 4 batches, place vegetables through food processor for a coarse grate (you can also grate coarsely by hand).
  2. Place mixture in a large bowl. Add eggs, flour, thyme and salt.
  3. Heat around 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Form bite-size mounds of latkes, taking care not to squeeze too much liquid out of the latkes. Fry until brown and crispy on each side, then place on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet to cool. Immediately sprinkle with an additional pinch of salt while they are still hot.
  4. Serve warm with applesauce, if desired.
