Zucchini Potato Latkes

I made this during the summer of 2015 when zucchini was in abundance and I wanted new ways to use them. I made this one day for a simple weekend lunch and it was a hit with all three of us.
Traditional latkes are made only with potatoes.. this version that includes zucchini is a healthier alternative of getting added veggies and reducing carbs.


-  1 large potato - shredded
-  2 meduim size zucchini- shredded
-  1 bunch scallions chopped finely
-  1 egg
-  1/4 cup wheat flour
-   1/2 tsp garlic poweder
-   1/2 tsp salt and pepper
-   Vegetable oil to pan fry.


1.  Wring out all the water from the shredded zucchini and potato. Add salt and pepper and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then squeeze out the excess water. You want this to be fairly dry or the patties wont hold shape while frying.

2.  Add a beaten egg, scallions, and flour and combine till you can make patties.

3.  Form patties with hand and pan fry them 2-3  at a time in some vegetable oil. 

Flip them over after 3-4 minutes and fry on the other side till they are a nice, golden colour.

Serve hot with ketchup or hot sauce or as-is.
