Tzatziki, a flavorful Greek yogurt sauce laced with cucumber, is a tangy accompaniment for these high-fiber latkes. Make it a meal: Enjoy with sliced fresh tomatoes and a few kalamata olives or put patties and tzatziki (yogurt sauce) in pita pockets for lunch on the go.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

    Advertisement
  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • Meanwhile, prepare tzatziki: Combine yogurt, cucumber, vinegar, the remaining minced shallot, 1 tablespoon dill and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the latkes with the tzatziki on the side.

Tips

Note: Shredded cooked potatoes can be found in the refrigerated produce section or dairy section of most supermarkets.

Tip: To make fresh breadcrumbs: Trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor into coarse crumbs. One slice makes about 1/3 cup crumbs.

Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.

Great use for zucchini I absolutely enjoyed this recipe. I followed the recipe for the latkes and I loved the taste and flavors. I did use dreied dill which was all I had on hand. I didn't make the Tzatziki because I always have Hannahs Tzatziki in my frig. I used the hannah's. made all twelve patties at once however I cooked them over several days. They turned out great each day. Pros: Great light supper or lunch Read More

I make two batches at a time and freeze the latkes for a quick weeknight meal. These are really tasty and a great way to use all that zucchini. Read More

After just printing out the crispy latke recipe that showed 100 calories per latke I was shocked to see 325 per serving here. Then I realized - that's for 3 latkes. This version is pretty close to the other one and sounds just as tasty! I'm taking both to a holiday party this weekend. Read More

These turned out really well and were a hit with some picky eaters! Also a great way to use up our farm fresh zucchini. I actually used shredded raw potato and the latkes turned out fine. I did salt the shredded zucchini and the shredded potato let them sit for 15 minutes and squeezed out a lot of liquid before I formed them into patties and fried them. I'll definitely be making this recipe again though it did take me longer than 40 minutes. Read More

Wonderful and simple always looking for new ways to eat my veggies! I left out the dill because I did not have any on hand and it still had plenty of flavor. The home made tzatziki sauce was great. I will be making a big batch to keep on hand I already can think of so many uses. Overall yum! This is a new favorite. Read More

Good lunch or snack Made these for lunch today. The latke by itself is okay not the best tasting but with the tsatziki it tastes delicious. My boyfriend ate a few of them and love them. Pretty good. Does take a little prep time. Pros: Easy to make Read More

Good taste Not filling We enjoyed these for dinner but they do not make a meal. Even with the addition of balsamic topped tomatoes I found I was still hungry after eating. Next time I would add more cheese possibly some oregano for added flavor (they were a tad bland) and definitely some rice on the side. Tzatziki was indeed a nice touch. Pros: Good use of the plethora of CSA zucchini Cons: not filling takes longer than recipe states Read More
