Mushroom Noodle Latkes

Here is an amazing Hanukkah recipe from  As you can tell, I love making latkes, and enjoy making latkes out of non-traditional foods, like apple or spinach & feta.  So, I just had to try noodle-based latkes.  And, one or our daughters was going to be home and she loves mushrooms, so this was a perfect combo – mushroom noodle latkes.IMG_8691.JPGPlease forgive me, I did not do a good job getting pictures of these latkes. It was the first night of Hanukah and there was too much excitement and impatience to eat dinner so that new toys could be played with. Nonetheless, they were delicious! Everyone ate way too many, so no leftovers.

The flavor is very rich, butter is used to cook the mushrooms and the latkes. So serve this with a good salad to balance it out.  We ate it with a hearty kale salad.IMG_8686.JPG
