Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound zucchini,shredded
  • 2 cups shredded cooked potato, (see Note)
  • 2 medium shallots, minced, divided
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs, (see Tip)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450° F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Step 2

Toss zucchini, potato, 3 tablespoons shallot and egg in a large bowl. Add breadcrumbs, feta, 1 tablespoon dill, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; toss to combine. Form the mixture into 12 patties.

Step 3

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 6 patties, cover and cook until crispy and browned on one side, 2 to 5 minutes. Carefully transfer the latkes to the prepared pan, browned-side down. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and patties.

Step 4

Transfer the latkes to the oven and bake until firm and heated through, 10 to 12 minutes.
