Passover Vegetable Latkes

We have vegetables coming out of our ears, Passover time, and I don't object, in the least. I had a lot of odd and end vegetables and put them together to make these latkes. This is from last year and was posted on Chaya's Comfy Cook. I plan to bring over the recipes there appropriate for the holiday, coming up, so soon.

Vegetable Pancakes


1 zucchini, cut into chunks

4 scallions. cut into pieces

1 sweet potato, peeled and  cut into chunks

1 turnip, peeled and cut into chunks

4 baby carrots

2 slices of bell peppers, cut into 1 inch pieces

fresh parsley

2 eggs

1/4 cup potato starch, more or less

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Olive oil spray for greasing the pan

olive oil to cook in


Shred vegetables in food processor.

Mix together the vegetables, onion, egg, and 1/4 cup of the potato starch. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. (I added this in the food processor.)

Add a little more potato starch if the mixture isn’t holding together.

Put a little olive oil in a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.

When the oil is hot, drop spoonfuls of the batter, using a fork to spread the vegetables into an even layer, press down a bit.

Work in batches to prevent overcrowding. Cook, turning once, until nicely browned on both sides, about 5 minutes.

Serve hot.


  1. When I saw the picture I was curious as to whether you were going to use potato starch or matzoh meal as a binder.
