Potato, Onion and Cauliflower Latkes

Potato-Onion-and-Cauliflower-Latkes

It's getting to be the most delicious time of the year. And if there's anything better than the smell of frying potato pancakes, I don't know what it is. Yes, Hanukkah is in a couple of short weeks. In fact, it's rather late this year, with the first menorah candle being lit on Christmas Eve. So, there will be yuletide carols and frying potatoes. It's going to be epic!

My mother, the champion family latke maker, is a purist. Potatoes, grated by hand, stand alone. I looked forward to her latkes all year long. But all the interesting recipe variations are up to me.

As a kid, I always requested my latkes without onion but I know better now. Onion is flavor! And cauliflower is a house favorite. It was worth a test and it passed with flying colors.

You can absolutely hand grate all three of these vegetables on a large box grater but...um...I used a food processor. Don't tell mom, OK? Enjoy!

Instructions

Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse a few times until the cauliflower resembles a rice texture. Pour into a large mixing bowl.

Add the onion to the food processor and pulse a few times until the onion is very finely chopped and add to the mixing bowl.

Replace the steel blade with a shredding blade or attachment and feed the potato pieces through the tube until all are shredded. Add to the mixing bowl.

Add the eggs, flour, salt, pepper and parsley to the mixing bowl and combine thoroughly. If liquid begins to form in the bowl, drain it out with a spoon.

Heat the oil in a large skillet or cast iron pan and add scoopfuls of the mixture to form pancakes. Fry for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with sour cream or Greek style yogurt.
