When you separate the radishes from the greens, save the greens! They can be sautéed just like spinach, kale, chard or any other green, and they’re loaded with good nutrients. Nom, nom, nom.

As long as you have 8 cups total of grated veggies, you can also play with the ratio of squash to radish. Heck, you can even add beets, carrots, potatoes or any other root veggies.


Units Scale

For the Latkes:

  • 3 large zucchini, or 6 cups grated
  • 10 radishes, or 2 cups grated
  • 1 cup yellow onion, minced or grated
  • 6 garlic scapes, minced (sub with 2 tablespoons garlic)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 turns of the black pepper grinder
  • 1 cup parsley, basil, or other fresh herbs, chopped
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (substitute with olive oil)

For the Sauce:

  • 2/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup mint leaves, minced
  • 1.5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 turns of the black pepper grinder


  1. Grate the squash, radishes and onion with a food processor or grater. Add to a colander and squeeze the water out of the vegetables. Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Add garlic and lemon zest to the vegetables, and mix.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and whisk in the bread crumbs.
  4. Combine the egg mixture with the vegetables. Add salt, pepper and fresh herbs if using. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Line a baking sheet with a paper towel.
  6. In a large frying pan or skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium-high. Test the oil by adding a small splotch of batter. If it sizzles and begins to brown, the oil is ready.
  7. Form patties and add them to the pan one by one. They will need about 5-7 minutes on each side to brown fully and cook the center. Flip when the bottom edges look browned.
  8. When both sides of the latke are done, transfer to the paper towel to drain off the excess oil.
  9. When ready to serve, whisk together the ingredients for the yogurt-mint dipping sauce and serve in a small bowl alongside the latkes.


Grating can be such an arm workout, but hey that means we can skip arm day at the gym! I like to use a box grater for better control and arm comfort.
