Lock your doors! That’s right, it’s zucchini season. Bountiful zucchini crops are a thing of legend in these parts, and many people have told me stories of climbing into their cars, only to find a large bag full of zucchini on their seat. Their friends and neighbors, desperate to get rid of the masses of zucchini in their gardens, are leaving these prolific veggies wherever they can. Well, I haven’t found any renegade zucchini on my doorstep, but I did manage to pick up a bagful of the most gorgeous green specimens at the local farm stand.
1 tbsp of mango chutney (if the chutney has large pieces of mango, give them a good chop)…
Wrap the zucchini up in the paper towel and squeeze out the excess juices. I suggest doing this over the sink, unless you want your dog licking the floor around your feet.
Heat 3 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Using about 2 tbsp of the zucchini mixture, form a patty and place it in the skillet. Repeat until there are about six latkes in the pan. There will be enough of the zucchini mixture to make two batches of the latkes.
