Description:
Hanukkah is celebrated the end of December. One of the traditional foods made during this celebration is potato latkes. In this recipe you will learn how to make easy potato latkes with Zucchini added.

Ingredients:
2 pounds zucchini
2 large potatoes or sweet Potatoes
1 medium onion
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
¾ cup matzah meal*
l Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil for frying
Makes 18 large pancakes to serve 6-8.


Directions:
Peel the zucchini and grate down to the seeds (discard the seeds). Squeeze out the liquid. Peel the potatoes and grate into the zucchini. Once more, remove the liquid. This is important! Grate the onion and add to the zucchini mixture. Add the eggs, oil and matzah meal, starting with ½ cup matzah meal and continuing to add more if necessary, until there is body to the mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste and blend well. In a large, heavy frying pan, heat some oil until almost smoking. Using a large tablespoon, spoon a round portion of zucchini mixture into the pan and brown on both sides. Serve hot with sour cream or applesauce.


Servings: 6 - 8


Notes: You can also add carrots, parsley and dill to this recipe. * Matzo meal (also spelled matzah meal and matzoh meal) is a food product which is made by grinding matzo bread, a traditional Jewish food. There are a wide range of uses for matzo meal in Jewish cuisine, and as a result, it is usually in stock at stores which carry Jewish foods. Commercial matzo meal often comes in several grades, from coarse to fine. It is also possible to make your own matzo meal, either from matzo you bake yourself or matzo purchased at the store.
