Healthy Dinner Idea: Zucchini Latkes

Hanukkah Goes Green: Zucchini Potato Latkes

Traditional potato latkes are amazing as is, but if you're looking to try a healthier twist, pick up a zucchini at the store and try this. Adding zucchini not only adds a fun green hue, but it also lowers the carbs and calories.

Keep reading to see this green twist on latkes.

Zucchini Potato Latkes

Ingredients

1 large russet potato
1/2 zucchini
1/3 medium sweet onion
1 egg
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Move the mixture into a large bowl, and add the egg, flour, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  3. 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.
  4. Place a paper towel on a plate, and put the cooked latkes on top so the extra oil can be absorbed.
  5. Serve warm with ketchup or applesauce.

@Soniabonya Any frying oil can work for latkes, I usually go with the lightest one in the pantry as they hold onto a lot of it. You can also use extra squash to fill potato skins, it tastes delicious and kind of cheesy :)

If we don't have canola oil, can we use veggie oil? I have quite a bit of squash and this will go over great to get rid of some. We can only do zucchini bread and sauteed squash for so long :)
