Chanukah Recipe: Hidden Veggie Latkes

(Courtesy of PJ Library)


  • 1 large russet potato, peeled
  • 1 large zucchini, peeled
  • ½ head of cauliflower
  • ½ yellow onion
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying


Grate together potato, zucchini, cauliflower and onion. Use a food processor to make this step faster.

Wrap the vegetable mixture in a cheesecloth or a lightweight kitchen towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

In a large bowl, combine vegetables with garlic, flour, baking powder, eggs, salt and pepper.

In a frying pan heat ½ inch of oil on medium-high. Carefully drop a heaping tablespoon of latke mixture into oil.

Fry for roughly 2 minutes, then flip and fry the other side.

Transfer each latke to a paper towel-lined platter.

Serve while warm.
