CURRY ZUCCHINI LATKES
The addition of curry powder in this recipe with the peanut sauce takes these latkes to the next level of awesomeness.  Combined with a small amount of coconut oil, cilantro, scallions, garlic and ginger make this a dish you could have on it’s own.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Shred the zucchini and potatoes. Place in a strainer and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Stir gently to incorporate the salt and let sit up to an hour.
  3. Gently press remaining liquid from vegetables and transfer to a mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup scallions, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, 1 tablespoon curry powder, 2 cloves garlic, ginger, 1/4 cup flax meal, and 1/4 cup coconut oil.
  4. Carefully mix all the ingredients until well combined.
  5. Using a 1/4 cup, scoop mixture onto cookie sheet. Gently press either with your hand or a fork until the latkes are about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes and check for crunchy sides and top. Continue to cook at 5 minute increments until crunchy. Then flip and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven when the other side is crunchy as well.
  8. Serve with a side of peanut sauce, a wedge of lime and a garnish of cilantro or parsley.
Recipe Notes

These latkes are easily adjusted to suit your flavor preferences.  Add more garlic, exchange cilantro for parsley, add more curry powder, add cayenne pepper for a spicier dish...endless opportunities.

If you don't have time to let the shredded veggies sit to strain, press the liquid out gently by hand.

If you prefer a slightly crunchier latke, I would recommend frying them in coconut oil.  Make sure he bottom of the pan is coated with oil and cook over medium high heat.  Keep an eye on them and flip when they are crunchy on one side.   I would place them on a cookie sheet with a cooling rack on top and keep warm in the oven on the lowest setting while you're cooking the rest.
