  • 6 cup sweet potatoes peeled and finely shredded
  • 2 cup zucchini finely shredded
  • 1 cup onions finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp no- salt herb blend
  • 1 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 2/3 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley fresh, chopped
  • 6 tsp canola oil divided


  • In a large bowl, mix the sweet potatoes, zucchini, onions, lemon juice, herb blend, egg, flour and parsley. 
  • In a large no-stick frying pan or griddle over medium-high heat, warm 2 tsp. of the oil.
  • Drop a tablespoon of the batter into the pan and spread it with a spatula to form a thin pancake.
  • Add more batter to fill the pan without crowding the latkes. 
  • Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden and crispy.
  • Remove from the pan and keep warm. Repeat, adding the remaining 4 tsp. oil as needed, until all the batter has been used.
