- 1 pound zucchini, shredded
- 2 cups shredded cooked potato
- 1 medium onion, peeled and shredded
- 2 medium shallots, minced
- 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
- 2 cups whole-wheat breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup crumbled fat free feta cheese
- 1 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cucumber, seeded and shredded
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill, divided
- 1 tbsp red-wine vinegar
- 1 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
- Preheat oven to 450° F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Toss zucchini, potato, onion, and egg substitute 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.
- Generously spray a large nonstick skillet with non-stick cooking spray and set 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 latkes, and re-spray pan with cooking spray as needed.
- 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 minced shallot, 1 tbsp dill and the remaining salt and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the latkes with the tzatziki sauce on the side.
