Veggie Pancakes

Tina and I were both out of state last weekend (though in different states) – thus the lack of posting. I was in Oklahoma visiting with some friends and their new baby.

The method is pretty similar to the latke recipe we posted during Hannukah, but rather than just potato an onion, this one also included shredded zucchini and carrot, and required a bit more flour (about 1/4 cup as I recall). We also left the shredded veggies to sit a while and then pressed out the liquid to make them hold together better. Much like out latkes, these pancakes were thoroughly fried – though this time in peanut oil, which was tasty.
