Summer Vegetable Latkes

I never ate eggplant until I was around 23. OK, I did have baba ganoush at 19 when I was in Israel, but I never really consider that eggplant.

Either way, now that I am growing eggplant and we’re getting eggplant in our CSA boxes, I knew I better figure out what to do with it.

Oh, and the squash. There is always squash coming from somewhere, isn’t there? The squash in our CSA boxes has slowed down, but we still get it every delivery.

I love zucchini but after a while … you know. And I’m just not a huge fan of the yellow crookneck squash.

But you know, I do like fried things. I had fried zucchini for the first time a couple months ago and I thought I had died it was so good.

So yesterday we had a fresh box of CSA veggies and a need for dinner. Time for latkes!

Vegetable Latkes - If you're drowning in summer squash and eggplant, fry them up into some summer vegetable latkes!

  1. We haven’t received any eggplant from our CSA just yet, but have loads of zucchini, summer squash, cabbage and potatoes. I’m totally going to whip up a vegan version of this later!

  2. I finally made a variation of this tonight. I left out the eggplant, because I didn’t have any, but used zucchini, summer squash, onion, fresh garlic, and a little bit of leftover mashed potatoes to help bind along with the Ener G egg replacer. So tasty!
