We forgo tradition with this potato-free version of latkes. Make a batch in advance of your holiday celebration and then simply warm them in the oven before serving.


uncooked carrot(s)

4 medium, finely grated

uncooked onion(s)

½ small, finely grated

fresh oregano

1 tsp, chopped

regular liquid egg substitute

1 cup(s)

matzo meal

½ cup(s), whole wheat

table salt

tsp, or to taste

black pepper

tsp, or to taste

cooking spray

1 spray(s)

canned tomato sauce

½ cup(s), heated


  1. Stir together carrots, onion, oregano, egg substitute and matzo meal in a medium bowl; season to taste with salt and pepper. If batter is too dry to mold together, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of water.
  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium heat.
  3. Spoon batter into skillet by heaping tablespoonfuls and flatten with a spatula. Cook until nicely browned, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from pan and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm; repeat with remaining batter. Serve hot with tomato sauce on the side. Yields two 3-inch pancakes and about 1 1/3 tablespoons of tomato sauce per serving.
