In Parsha Miketz Pharaoh’s impossible dream falls to Joseph to interpret and Joseph tells of seven years of plenty, followed by seven years of hunger. He is rescued from jail and ascends to the highest reaches of power in Egypt. Joseph’s wise counsel and careful planning lead Egypt through a terrible famine. While the weight of hunger is heavy throughout the surrounding lands, Egypt is full. On this Shabbat, coinciding with Hanukkah, we are going to fill you up with the a great latke recipe and lots of extra virgin olive oil that is sure to get everyone to eat their veggies. I guarantee no one will go hungry this week!
Instead of the expected potato latkes, try these squash latkes using your favorite winter squash and frying in extra virgin olive oil.
If you haven't yet mastered spatchcocking you can feel free to make this with a regular whole chicken or even chicken pieces, but a spatchcoked chicken cooks the most even and will yield the best results.
