Low Carb Celery Root Latkes with Roasted Garlic Herb Sour Cream

I can't just leave a latke recipe alone. 

This year, to create a latke recipe in time for Passover, I decided to leave the potato behind and substitute celery root.

Using celery root instead of potatoes in this latkes recipe creates not only a lower carb version of this traditional Jewish dish but also a more flavorful one. I used red onions to add a bit of color and the rest is simple, flour, eggs and some kosher salt and pepper.

This celery root latkes recipe would also pair well with the traditional sides of apple sauce and plain sour cream. 

However, I jazzed up the sour cream a bit by adding oven roasted garlic cloves and some fresh herbs. 

If you want to get fancier, substitute creme fraiche for the sour cream. To further cut calories, use low-fat or nonfat sour cream.
