Fat-Free Latkes

If you're watching your weight or trying to eat low-fat, but want to enjoy latkes for Passover, here's the perfect recipe for you. These fat free potato pancakes are especially nice when served with some Mullen's Apple Sauce, or even with just a few drops of honey. Or for an exotic twist, serve with a dollop of apple chutney.

1 cup fat-free egg substitute (I use Egg Beaters brand), or 8 egg whites
1 cup apple juice (100% real juice, not juice drink)
1 cup skim milk (organic tastes best)
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 finely ground whole wheat matzo crumbs

Whisk together the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, then add the matzo crums and mix until just blended (don't over mix). Carefully heat a large non-stick frying pan (don't let it smoke!) and use a tablespoon to drop the batter into the hot frying pan. Fry until browned on both sides. Serves 4.

Note: If you are cooking for 2, you can simply halve the ingredient quantities in this recipe except for the cinnamon, which you might prefer to reduce only to 1/2 tsp.

Zestfully yours,
