Gluten Free Zucchini Latkes with Paleo Option

Yield 6

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded zuchinni (see note)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup finely minced or shredded onion
  • 1/2 cup rice flour, tapioca flour, or 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • avocado oil for frying

Optional Toppings

  • chopped tomato
  • Greek yogurt
  • sour cream

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients through the oregano and mix well to combine.
  2. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add a tablespoon of oil and heat until shimmering.
  4. Drop the batter by the tablespoonful.
  5. Cook until golden on one side and flip, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Notes

Use smallish zucchini with minimal seeds and pulp and firm flesh throughout. No 'zukezillas'! They contain too much water.
