Passover Vegetable Latkes With Three Variations
source: Meng He
I came up with this hearty recipe over the weekend. First, I started with a classic matzoh meal latke. Then, I added some veggies, adjusted the seasonings, and the result was this Passover friendly vegetable latke.
1 cup matzoh meal
1 medium onion, grated
1 medium carrot, grated
1 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1 pinch pepper
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except olive oil.
Pour a small amount of olive oil onto a high quality, non-stick frying pan.
When the oil is hot, spoon some of the matzoh meal/vegetable mixture onto the pan. When the bottom of the latke looks solid, flip it. When the latke is finished cooking, taste to determine if more salt, pepper or water is needed. Add additional ingredients if necessary.
Cook the rest of the raw mixture in several batches, just like making standard pancakes. These can be eaten plain, with gravy, or with ketchup.
- Add 1/2 cup grated zucchini
- Serve with a spicy tomato sauce
- Substitute chicken broth for the water
