Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons white all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Preparation

  1. Grate zucchini and chop onion.
  2. In a medium bowl beat the eggs; add flour and mix well.
  3. Add the zucchini and onion and stir into the egg mixture until well mixed.
  4. 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.

  6. Drain on a paper towel to soak up extra oil.
  7. Serve hot.

Helpful hints

  • 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.
