Zucchini Potato Latkes
1 large russet potato
1/3 medium sweet onion
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil
Grate the potato, zucchini, and onion in a food processor. Move grated veggies to a colander to allow the excess moisture to drain out. Gently press the veggies down to encourage more liquid to drain out.
Move the mixture into a large bowl, and add the egg, flour, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. Add large spoonfuls of the batter to the pan, and shape them into pancakes that are about 1/4-inch thick. Cook each side until golden brown, about 5 to 8 minutes per side.
Place a paper towel on a plate, and put the cooked latkes on top so the extra oil can be absorbed.
