Zucchini-Onion Latkes (Pancakes)
- CKD non-dialysis
- 2 medium zucchini
- 1/2 cup onion
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons white all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Grate zucchini and chop onion.
- In a medium bowl beat the eggs; add flour and mix well.
- Add the zucchini and onion and stir into the egg mixture until well mixed.
- Coat a frying pan with olive oil and heat. When oil is heated, drop the mixture by spoonfuls into the oil, making 16 equal portions.
- Using a spatula, flatten the latkes and fry until brown on both sides.
- Drain on a paper towel to soak up extra oil.
- Serve hot.
- The latkes taste best if eaten immediately.
- Potato latkes (pancakes) are traditionally served during Hanukkah. Zucchini-Onion Latkes are a good low-potassium alternative.
- Potato latkes contain over 600 mg potassium for a comparable serving unless the potatoes are soaked or boiled to reduce potassium.
