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.

Zucchini-Onion Latkes (Pancakes)

This sounds good but I'm not fond of zucchini skin. How would the nutrition change if I peeled the zucchini? Dietitian comment: The potassium and fiber content will be slightly lower.
