Celery Root Latkes (Egg-free, GAPS, Paleo)

Dec 04 2013

Hanukkah is coming to an end– have you had your latkes yet? Whether or not you celebrate the Festival of Lights, a crispy fried vegetable pancake served with sour cream and applesauce is a special fall treat. I’m  Jew-ish myself and appreciate connecting to my cultural heritage through traditional foods.

In an ideal world, the chili I’m sharing with you is best suited to the produce of late summer/early fall (depending on where you live) and to cooler weather when we crave stews the most.

Green Chicken & Vegetable Chili
