Hanukah is just a few days away and potato latkes are a traditional dish. But here is a gay take on the familiar treat.

(Makes 16 pancakes)

  • 1 small sweet potato, shredded
  • 1 small Yukon Gold potato, shredded
  • 1 small zucchini, shredded
  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup Cottage Cheese
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter, or cooking oil as needed
  • ¼ cup Sour Cream
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar cheese

(Preparation: 15 Minutes. Cooking: 20 minutes)
  1. Preheat oven to 200°f/100°c for keeping pancakes warm later
  2. Shred all the vegetables with a box grater. Add to a large bowl together with chopped green onions.
  3. In another bowl, combine cottage cheese with flour, eggs, salt and pepper and stir together until well-blended.
  4. Pour liquid mixture over vegetables and stir all together for an even consistency.
  5. Heat a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat and add a little margarine, butter, or cooking oil
  6. Scoop ¼ cup (50 mL) portions of vegetable mixture into skillet; flatten using back of measuring spoon.
  7. Cook for 5 minutes per side or until browned and cooked through.
  8. Transfer pancakes to a baking sheet in oven to hold warm.
  9. Repeat with remaining vegetable mixture, adding additional margarine/butter/oil to the skillet as needed.
  10. Serve pancakes with sour cream and cheese (if using).

Freeze extra patties on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet to warm gently in a skillet or the oven for a quick lunch or side dish. (In my experience, they don't last long enough to freeze. I just put the few left-overs in the fridge and have them cold as a delicious late night snack! Ted)
