Pan-fried parsnip potato cakes topped with lemony marinated feta crumbles and micro arugula leaves. —Riley Wofford
What You'll Need
feta cheese, crumbled
fresh lemon juice
chopped thyme leaves
extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Vegetable oil, for frying
russet potatoes, peeled and thinly julienned
parsnips, peeled and thinly julienned
Micro arugula, for garnish
Stir together the feta, lemon zest, lemon juice, thyme, and olive oil in a small bowl to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Toss together the potatoes and parsnips in a bowl. Working in batches, drop spoonfuls of the parsnip mixture into the pan, pressing gently with the back of a spatula to flatten. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Drain the latkes on paper towels. Continue cooking the latkes, adding more vegetable oil as needed.
Top the latkes with the marinated feta and garnish with micro arugula.
