More Veggie Pancakes!

 I told you I was going through my old recipe box and I found something cut out from some old newspaper for Tricolor Latkes - so since there were just a few more little zucchinis at the farmer's market - and lots of carrots I decided to try them - and in love I fell. I'm beginning to think any vegetable if grated and sautéed makes a damn good pancake - maybe next I'll try beets!
Tricolor Latkes serves 4 at least - but good leftover

2 medium zucchini - grated and salt with 1/4 teaspoon and let sit in a colander to drain
2 medium carrots - grated
2 medium baking potatoes - grated and squeezed of the excess liquid
1/2 onion grated
1 clove garlic chopped
2 eggs beaten
1/4 cup flour
oil for frying

Once you have let the zucchini sit for about 10 min, squeeze out the liquid then grate the rest and mix in all the remaining ingredients except for the oil. If it is really runny add another tablespoon of flour - this is not so exact since your idea of medium is probably different than mine. Heat a large pan and pour in a small amount of oil and make little pancakes - fry on both sides until browned -with each batch you may have to add a bit more oil - remove to paper towels and sprinkle with a bit of maldon salt and serve with apple sauce and sour cream - yum.

Post Note: I have also done sweet potato pancakes - so I'll try to remember and share those next.
