Keftes Dprassasephardic Leek Patties
Leeks are traditionally served this way in Sephardic homes as a tradition for Passover as a sign of Spring and on Rosh Hashanna as a "siman" a sign to Hashem. And since they are lightly fried, they are perfect if you'd like a Sephardic twist on Hanukkah latkes.

Be sure to serve with a spritz of lemon, it really brightens the flavor. It's our tradition to serve Keftes d'Prassa baked in the tomato-lemon sauce
5 large leeks, white parts only, washed well and chopped (discard tough green stalks)

5 matzos

3 eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

4 garlic cloves, garlic

1 cup matzo meal

1/4 cup vegetable oil

Sauce for Sephardic Leek Patties:

1 (8 ounce can) tomato sauce

juice of one lemon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

Helpful Hints
I make them weeks ahead and freeze. Then it's a chinch to place them right on the blech to warm and serve with a spritz of lemon to brighten the taste.

This recipe is from my first book, Cooking for the King the Rosh Hashanah edition. The recipes can be used any time of the year. Besides as a simon on RH, Sephardic Leek Patties make their appearance as lightly fried leek latkes on Chanukah and as a Pesach side dish in honor of spring.
