When I go grocery shopping I always buy zucchini. And then I frequently forgot about it, it ends up hidden somewhere at the bottom of the fridge – and it goes bad.

Which is such a shame not only because wasting food is terrible but because there are so many awesome zucchini recipes I could have made, including a creamy zucchini soup, chickpea and zucchini burgers, ratatouille with zucchini and white beans, or endless others.

So it really is no excuse to let zucchini of all things go bad – (don’t even get me started on how often I buy a bunch of parsley/cilantro and have to throw the whole bag away). This weekend I was not about to let that happen though.

This past Saturday morning – well ok it was more like the afternoon by the time I got up – I did spot one remaining zucchini in the fridge – before it had a chance to go bad. So I figured latkes would make a fine breakfast. They’re so easy to make – you don’t even need a formal recipe – I just made mine up as I went along, but I did write it down so it would be easier to share. The best part is – they’re great with sour cream!
