Vegetable Latkes

Vegetable Latkes

This was in yesterday's paper, a recipe by someone who'd won some sort of prize. I saw the paper in a coffee shop and only ripped out the recipes, not the start of the article. (Giving the general idea, hoping this doesn't violate somebody's copyright)

Idaho potatoes, onion, grated and strained.

Grated zucchini and carrots.

Grated sweet red pepper, and grated skin side down, discarding the skin.

Eggs, matzoh, salt, pepper, nutmeg, fresh parsley.

Put the potato starch back into the bowl with all the ingredients. Fry in a mixture of schmaltz and oil.

Personally, I'd not dignify this recipe with the term latkes, but would call them veggie fritters. They're served with a sour cream raita made with minced onion, cucumber, lemon, and mint. Sounds like cultural clash to me.
