10 latkes

Total time

0 minutes


  • 2 medium slender zucchini
  • 4 tbsp all purpose flour or breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp onion salt
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste ( I used 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • olive oil for frying
  • maple cranberry sauce
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup water


  1. Grate the zucchini. Wrap it in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze tightly to remove as much moisture as you can.
  2. Put the zucchini in a mixing bowl with the flour or breadcrumbs, onion salt, and pepper and give it a quick mix with a fork.
  3. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet or medium high heat. Scoop tablespoon sized portions of the mixture into the pan and flatten with the back of the spoon. Let them fry for about 2 minutes on each side, until they are browned and crispy. Add more oil as necessary to finish the batch. Remove the cooked latkes to a cooling rack to drain.
  4. Serve them hot with the maple cranberry sauce on the side.
  5. To make the sauce, bring the cranberries, syrup, and water to a boil in a saucepan. Boil for 15 minutes, then let cool and serve or refrigerate.
