Butternut Squash Latkes

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  •  1/4 cup diced onion
  •  2 cups grated butternut squash, packed
  •  1 teaspoon curry powder
  •  1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  •  1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  •  1 large egg, beaten
  •  1/4 cup garbanzo-fava bean flour (such as Bob's Red Mill®)
  •  3 tablespoons corn flour (such as Bob's Red Mill®)
  •  2 tablespoons olive oil
  •  1/4 cup sour cream for garnish (optional)
  •  2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds for garnish (optional)

Preparation

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion; cook and stir until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place butternut squash in a large bowl, and season with curry powder, cumin, sea salt, and black pepper. Toss with a fork, then stir in the egg, garbanzo-fava bean flour, and corn flour. Mix in cooled onions.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the butternut squash mixture into the pan. Flatten to a patty about 1/4-inch thick. Pan fry until crisp and browned, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining squash mixture.
  4. Top with sour cream and pumpkin seeds before serving.
