Ingredients

  • Pancakes:
  • 3 cups shredded peeled Yukon gold potato (about 1 pound)
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 cup shredded onion (about 1 small)
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup matzo meal

  • 2 tablespoons chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

To prepare pancakes, place potatoes, zucchini, and onion in a clean kitchen towel, and squeeze out excess liquid. Combine potato mixture, egg substitute, matzo meal, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and dash of pepper in a large bowl, and stir gently to blend.

Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spoon about 1 cup potato mixture onto hot pan, spreading to a 6-inch diameter. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate; keep warm. Repeat procedure with the remaining 3 teaspoons oil and remaining potato mixture.
