Zucchini Latkes

Zucchini Latkes

These quick and easy zucchini latkes make a perfect summertime breakfast, lunch or dinner.


  • 3 cups zucchini grated
  • 3 cups potato, sweet potato, parsnip or more zucchini grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup matzo meal, potato starch or flour optional - skip for paleo or lower carb latkes
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • fresh black pepper to taste
  • Oil for frying


  1. Grate the zucchini and other vegetables if using.  Regardless of the vegetable mix, you'll need about 6 cups of grated veggies.

  2. Mix the remaining ingredients in with the grated veggies, fully incorporating but not over mixing.  If you're using flour, use care not to develop the gluten or they'll be gummy.

  3. Heat 1/2 an inch of oil in a cast iron skillet.  Once it's quite hot, add scoops of latke mixture and flatten them out with a spatula.  Cook on high, until well browned.  Flip and repeat.

  4. Serve with sour cream, pickled beets, applesauce or condiments of your choosing.
