17 Dec Cauliflower Cheddar Latkes
1 lb. Cauliflower, chopped and steamed
1 russet potato, peeled and grated
1 small onion, diced
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp. flour
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup canola oil
Vegetable oil for frying, such that it reaches a 1/2-inch depth in the pan
It’s traditional to eat latkes on Chanukah but no one said your latkes need to be traditional – try some cool variations like these cauliflower cheddar latkes. Instead of ordinary potato latkes try sweet potatoes or zucchini or butternut squash – be creative and enjoy!
Place cauliflower in large mixing bowl. Add the potato, onion, breadcrumbs, eggs, pepper, salt, cayenne pepper, flour, cheese, and canola oil and mix well. Heat vegetable oil to about 360 degrees F in a large, heavy skillet. Shape into 3-inch patties and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Dry on paper towel-lined plates, and then serve!
