Zucchini Latkes; GF/DF


I think zucchini is an amazing vegetable.You can create so many different recipes that you can have something different every time This week in celebration of Hanukkah I am making Zucchini Latkes (GF/DF), a holiday treat many of us crave this time of year. Although traditionally made from potatoes, latkes are equally wonderful, not to mention healthier made from any variety of vegetables. This time I used zucchini, but feel free to use your imagination and try other vegetable like my Carrot and Parsnip Latkes I made last year.


Zucchini Latkes, GF/DF


Recipe:

Ingredients:
  • 1 large zucchini 
  • 1/2 large onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour 
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • sea salt to taste
  • coconut oil for frying

Preparation:
  1. Cut the ends of the zucchini off and discard.
  2. Cut the zucchini into large chunks.
  3. Toss them along with the onion and garlic into the food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  4. In a separate bowl beat the egg.
  5. Mix in the contents of the food processor into the bowl and add the flour and seasonings.
  6. Using a tablespoon, spoon the batter into your heated pan with the coconut oil and cook over medium high heat until browned, turning over gently cooking on both sides. Remove from pan, blot on a paper towel and sprinkle with a little salt if you like. Serve and enjoy!

  2. Thanks Phyllis for sharing this fabulous zucchini latkes recipe at Real Food Friday # 68. I love latkes and as soon as I get some zucchini, I''ll try this with Organic flaxmeal and water replacement for the egg. That way it will be cholesterol free and vegan. Happy Holidays! Warm regards, Nancy A. P.S. My blog post is "Here a Squash, There a Squash." Hope you can visit me too.
