Zucchini Latkes

Zucchini Latkes


Have you ever grown your own zucchini? If you have, you'll know exactly what we're about to talk about...that time of year that always comes...when you end up with more zucchini than you could possibly ever eat. When you desperately search for ways to use up mass amounts of those delicious green summer squash. Well, this is our favourite new way to use up zucchini this year.

This recipe was created by The Farmer's Kitchen team member, Jesse Casson!

But what is a latke? A latke is a pan-fried potato pancake typically made from shredded potato and onion. Sometimes you might even see them incorporating other ingredients like cheese, or in this case - zucchini!

In just a few simple steps, you can make these delightfully light & crispy zucchini latkes! You'll start by grating russet potatoes, zucchini & onions, then use the potato's natural starch, eggs & breadcrumbs to bind them together.

A refreshing combination of herbs, lemon, garlic & sour cream make the perfect accompaniment for dipping your tasty zucchini pillows. You'll want to make the sour cream in advance to allow time for the flavours to develop!

One of the things that we believe strongly at the Farmer's Kitchen is that the quality of your ingredients greatly impacts the end result. This is true not only for the produce you use in dishes, but even the "supporting cast" of ingredients, especially eggs! We love Nature's Farm Eggs for their superior taste & nutritional value. The flavourful, wholesome taste of the eggs is the result of a multi-grain diet which also makes their eggs high in Omega-3 fatty acids. 

 *Psst Nature's Farm also makes a variety of delicious dry pasta and granola!*
