    Wow. I see these in Safeway all the time and had no idea what they are. 1 cup of Chayote only has 4 net carbs. Thats great. I'm always looking for a good potatoe replacement. I'm going to try a few dishes with them.

    Latkes! These are more in line with placki ziemniaczane I've had at restaurants in Poland- large, softer pancakes that are a good base for gravies. Seriously, I know it's been a while since I've had potatoes, but I feel these might be almost just as good. **Ingredients** * 1 [medium chayote squash](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chayote)(mine was about 263 grams after shredding) * 32 grams of finely sliced onion * 32 grams of carbquik * 1 egg * seasoning to taste * oil for frying **Instructions** 1. Peel the chayote squash and use a food processor to shred the fruit. Press into a sieve to get some of the water out. Get as much as you can, it won't be nearly enough. 2. Spread the Dry-ish squash out on a dish towel, roll it up, and wring it out over the sink. I go through two rounds of this with two different towels. Just like with potatoes, get everything as dry as humanly possible. 3. Mix in the very very finely sliced (or shredded!) onion, the carbquik, the egg, and seasoning until well combined. 4. Heat the oil until a wooden spoon bubbles when placed in. Divide the mixture into however many pieces you'd like. I use this recipe to make two large ones. 5. Fry until golden, drain on paper towels. **Note:** I weighed out 150g of oil into a pan. I weighed 22g of paper towels. I fried both latkes. There was some splatter and drip. When I weighed the oil after (not a whole lot of food bits that I could tell) it weighed 98g. When I weighed the towels after using them to pat down they weighed 36g. So, I logged 19g of oil in my tracker per latke. **Nutrition Info** This is for the whole recipe, as entered into CarbManager, divide as you see fit. This does NOT include the oil.
