1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish
2 1/2 cups shredded peeled baking potato (about 1 pound)
2 1/2 cups shredded peeled parsnip
1 cup grated carrot
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided


Combine sour cream and horseradish; cover and chill.

Combine potato, parsnip, and carrot; spread evenly onto several layers of paper towels. Sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt; let stand 30 minutes. Cover with additional paper towels, and press down to absorb liquid. Place parsnip mixture in a large bowl. Add onion, flour, and pepper; toss to combine.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Divide parsnip mixture into 10 equal portions (about 1/4 cup per portion), shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 5 patties; cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Place cooked patties on a baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and uncooked patties. Bake latkes at 400° for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. Sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Serve with horseradish cream.
