Print Friendly 

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.

Wellness Tip
Danger! Over-hydration
Exercise-related over-hydration may occur during prolonged exercise or sports when fluid intake, including water and soda, exceeds fluid loss. If too much water dilutes the body's salts, it can cause brain cells to swell and push against the skull. For this reason, sports drinks often contain salt to balance the fluids. Over-hydrating can cause nausea, severe fatigue, disorientation, and vomiting. In the most severe cases it can also cause seizures, coma and even death. All endurance athletes who drink too much fluid, to quickly are at risk for over-hydration. Seek medical assistance if symptoms occur.

Karma and Life Lessons
Karma is most often described as the law of moral causation, but what if karma is actually part of a benevolent system designed to help humans move into spiritual evolution? Sound controversial? Yes, but perhaps there is still more for us to understand about the things we think we know.

Dark Chocolate Zucchini (or summer squash) Cake
Category: Desserts
Description: Dark chocolate the bitter sweet treat! It's more than wishful thinking - chocolate can be good for you. Studies show that eating chocolate, primarily dark chocolate, may contribute to improved cardiovascular health. Packed with natural antioxidants, dark chocolate and cocoa sit in the same good-for-you category as green tea and blueberries. That's because chocolate comes from cacao beans (or cocoa beans), which grow on the cacao tree and are full of natural plant nutrients. Most of the studies to date highlight dark chocolate's health values because it has the highest percentage of cocoa solids, therefore more antioxidants.
*Health Fact! 40g of cocoa powder a day for 4 weeks has been proven to increase HDL (good) cholesterol by 5% while decreasing LDL (bad cholesterol by 14%!
As a part of the summer squash family, zucchini not only offers delightful taste and texture to many dishes, but also carries with it many health bene?ts.
