Zucchini Latkes Recipe

Zucchini Latkes Recipe

My husband, Avi, and I carry prepare these delicious latkes with our children, Sara, 10, and Yaakov, 5. This year, Sara is old enough to help make the latkes (the oil can get very hot, so be careful). I serve my latkes with sour cream, cottage cheese and applesauce, plus a salad on the side.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 medium zucchini, shredded (about 4-1/2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1/4 cup matzo meal or dry bread crumbs
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Oil for frying
  • Sour cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, toss zucchini and 1/2 teaspoon salt; let stand for 10 minutes. Squeeze zucchini dry. Stir in the eggs, onion, matzo meal, pepper and remaining salt.
  • 2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into oil; press lightly to flatten. Fry for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with sour cream if desired. Yield: 16 latkes.
