    • will fix now but it’s 1 cup shredded carrots which is about 3 medium carrots peeled and shredded

    • Fixed now but to clarify you will need 1 cup shredded carrots which is equal to about 3 medium carrots.

    Hi, these look grt! was thinking if it will be just as good to bake them?

    • yes for sure try that – spray and bake flip halfway thru spray and finish baking until browned and cooked thru

    Veggi latkes recipe looks great.
    I’m wondering if slightly adapted recipe wouldn’t be just as delish and
    even alot less time consuming in
    a casserole dish baked in the oven
    for about 30 mins. What do you think??

    • Marleen really cool idea – I would say try it baking it in a shallow pie plate so it’s not too thick spray with cooking spray or drizzle with olive oil — and slice it into wedges to serve.
