I am always looking for new ways to cook healthier food. We just love latke and pancakes but I am turned off with the fact that in order to make them nice and crispy outside and soft inside I have to use quite a bit of fat; one reason that until recently they were not on my menu very often. Then, while cleaning my small kitchen appliance storage area it hit me: use an electric waffle iron! Not only is it healthier but also heck of a lot cleaner. Both of these points make it a real winner.
2 medium zucchini, coarsely shredded
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
2 green onions, chopped
Place the grated zucchini and potato in a stainless steel bowl and season with salt and pepper. Let rest for up to 30 minutes. Place the mix in a kitchen towel and squeeze to remove some of the liquid. Transfer back to a bowl, mix in the beaten egg, green onions and flour. The consistency should be that of a thick pancake batter. If the mix is too thick, add some milk, if it is too runny, add more flour.
