Butternut Squash Latkes are a veggie filled alternative to the classic.  Using minimal oil, they are a great way to enjoy latkes and stay on plan, too!


  • 2 cups of butternut squash, shredded or spiralized
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 T diced onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • olive oil cooking spray


  1. In a large bowl, mix together squash, eggs, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.
  2. Coat a a large nonstick pan with cooking spray, then heat over medium-low heat. When it gets hot, add a half teaspoon of olive oil and swirl around the pan.
  3. Gently add about 1/3 cup of the squash mixture to the pan, lightly pressing down with a fork. Add two more to the pan and cook until golden on the bottom (about three minutes). Flip. Use the spatula to press down and flatten. Cook about 3 more minutes or until golden.
  4. Remove from pan and repeat with the remaining squash mixture.
  5. Serve warm. Great topped with Greek yogurt!
