chanukah early - by b

chanukkah doesn't start for a few days.. but a few evenings ago we were invited to an early channukah celebration with some people we met thru school. it was a potluck...

being in spain, i searched for a sephardi chanukkah dish

i found a pretty easy (not quick.. but easy) recipe for keftes de espinaca or spinach patties. i used this recipe from epicurious... and they turned out tasty.... they're the same BASIC idea as ashkenazi potato latkes (the more known chanukkah food in the U.S.) but these are a lot lighter and far less annoying and stinky to make.

spinach, onions, garlic, breadcrumbs, nutmeg....
