  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 large carrot, trimmed, peeled and sliced crosswise into 2 or 3 pieces
  • 1 zucchini, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 3/4 lb Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp potato starch
  • 3 tbsp whole-wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 apple, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Mist a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Using the shredding attachment of a food processor, shred carrot, zucchini and potatoes; transfer to a large bowl. (Alternatively, shred vegetables using the large holes of a box grater.) Add eggs, potato starch, bread crumbs, salt, black pepper and cayenne to potato mixture and mix well to combine.
  2. Heat a large skillet on medium-high and coat with cooking spray. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding, scoop 2 tbsp potato mixture per latke, squeezing out excess liquid, and drop into skillet, spreading each into 1/4-inch-thick circle. Cook, turning once, until deep golden brown on both sides, about 6 minutes; transfer to baking sheet. Bake until cooked through and vegetables are soft but not mushy, 12 to 14 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine apple and yogurt. Serve immediately with latkes, as a dipping sauce or spooned over top.
