  • Level: Easy
  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Total: 39 min
  • Prep: 15 min
  • Cook: 24 min


2 cups grated yellow squash (from 2 medium squash)

1/2 cup grated onion

1/4 cup egg substitute, divided

1/2 teaspoon salt, divided

1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided

2 cups grated zucchini (from 2 medium zucchini)

Olive oil spray


  1. In a large bowl, combine by hand the squash, half of the onion, 1/8 cup egg substitute, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In another large bowl, combine by hand the zucchini, half of the onion, 1/8 cup egg substitute, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Heat a large non-stick griddle over high heat; it will be hot enough when a drop of water sizzles when dropped on the surface. Squeeze out the excess liquid from both the squash and zucchini mixtures. Working in batches so as not to overcrowd the griddle, carefully drop 1 heaping tablespoon of both batters onto the hot griddle and flatten with a spatula to form pancake shape. Cook for a couple minutes on each side or until golden brown. Repeat until no batter remains. Keep warm in a low oven (250 degrees F) until all latkes are made, if desired.

the first time I made these they were awful; no flavor whatsoever. But when I made them a second time, I added spices and topped them with salsa. <br />hardly traditional, but still good. <br />(probably better to stick with potatoes and just use less oil.)
