An Old Recipe, Perfect For Chanukah
Fried Carrot and Zucchini Latkes
Makes about 12 latkes.
4 Zucchini shredded (I scrub mine and leave the peel on but do as you like)
4 carrots peeled and shredded
1 small onion shredded
3 heaping tablespoons of flour
1/2 cup chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups vegetable oil
Shred veggies and lightly season with salt. Wait 10 minutes and then over a sieve, strain as much liquid as you can out of them. Place them in a bowl with eggs, flour, salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Heat oil over medium heat. Scoop out golf ball size spoons of the mixture and flatten into a pattie. Fry in oil for about 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Cool on paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil.
