Zucchini "Latkes"

A great way to use up a zuke bumper crop.

1/2 cup matzoh meal
2 eggs*
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 oz. shredded zucchini or courgette (or other summer squash)
optional - minced fresh tarragon (or other herb of your choice)
1/2 tsp salt (or to your taste)

Some oil for frying

Mix all the ingredients until it is a well combined batter and let "rest" for 15 minutes.

Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet, and spread a spoonful of the batter into the pan and flatten if needed. I get about 3 pancakes in my skillet. Cook until golden brown on each side and serve hot.

* I have successfully used Ener-G egg replacer in this recipe. Use 3 teaspoons egg replacer with 5 Tablespoons of warm water, mixed together. It gives it a more potato-like flavor instead of an eggy flavor.

Served here with diced tomatoes and black beans:
