These vegetable pancakes make a great Hanukkah side dish. You can shred the vegetables in advance but be sure to squeeze out their liquid just before use.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Combine carrots and zucchini in a very large bowl. Squeeze vegetables by hand to press out as much liquid as possible; drain liquid. Stir oats into vegetables. Add eggs and egg whites and mix well. Stir in 1/2 cup of applesauce, curry powder, cinnamon, salt and baking powder; mix well.
  2. Coat a large nonstick jelly-roll pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray. Measure out pancake mixture by rounded 1/3 cups and arrange on prepared pan, allowing 2 inches between pancakes. There should be 12 pancakes total. Flatten pancakes to 1/2-inch thickness. Bake until pancakes are firm and golden brown around edges, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare sour cream topping. Stir together sour cream, remaining 1/2 cup of applesauce, ginger and cumin in a medium bowl.
  4. Remove pancakes from oven and let stand 5 minutes; gently remove pancakes from pan with a spatula. Serve with sour cream topping. Yields 3 pancakes and about 1/4 cup of topping per serving.
