Courgette Latkes

Our version of Veg Society's Coutgette Latkes

Christmas is upon us and we have family coming to stay, so I was hunting around for some Xmas ideas.

The Vegetarian Society's newsletter, Veggie Bites, happened to land in my inbox at that moment.

I went straight to their link meat-free Xmas recipes. - An amazing selection of interesting recipes.

I have tried out the Courgette Latkes and the Smoked Bean Curd Bakes with Shiitake and Walnut Stuffing so far.
Both were hits with Karen and our guests.

There were a couple of things I did slightly differently though- 

Anyone following this blog will have gathered we tend to low carb and/or healthy options where possible.

For the latkes, we used sweet potatoes, and replaced the white flour with a mixture of almond flour and cornflour.
We also baked them in the oven rather than deep frying in oil.

We try to use up ingredients on hand if possible.
So for the Bean Curd Bakes, we used almonds instead of cashews.
And I had been to the Old Biscuit Mill market in the morning, and was well stocked up on delicious fresh mushrooms.

A little bit about this and other Cape Town markets in a later post.

Have a delicious vegetarian Xmas. Happy cooking!
