Sunchoke Latkes

Sunchoke Latkes Recipe
Tina Cornett; Melanie J. Clarke
Use the shredder blade of a food processor to quickly shred the artichokes, potato, and carrot. Cook the latkes soon after combining the ingredients so the mixture does not become watery; if this happens, though, remove the mixture from the liquid using a slotted spoon.

Yield:

6 servings (serving size: 3 latkes and 1 tablespoon sour cream)
