Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Latkes

  1. Place cauliflower in a colander to defrost for two hours. Using a towel, squeeze out as much water as possible.

  2. Place riced cauliflower in a food processor fitted with an S blade and pulse a few times.

  3. Add eggs, flour, salt, and nutritional yeast and mix with a spoon.

  4. With oiled gloves, scoop out a small amount of batter. I recommend weighing the batter to two ounce per latke to get an even, perfect size. 

  5. Spray a large frying pan with avocado oil. (For this recipe you want to be generous, about 10–12 sprays.)

  6. Heat up the frying pan. Place five to six latkes in the pan, then immediately lower the flame to a medium temp. Allow latkes to cook fully on one side until they are easy to lift and flip. Fry on the second side for another few minutes and then move latkes to a pan or plate. 

Baking Directions

  1. Line a large cookie sheet with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper. Weigh 12 two-ounce balls and shape them into latkes. Spray them on top with avocado oil. 

  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

  3. Bake the latkes for 20 minutes then remove them and flip them over and bake an additional 12 minutes to brown slightly on the second side. The first side will get crispier, so serve them crispy side up.

    Nutritional yeast

    Do i have to use it, can I just skip out the yeast for a regular cauliflower latke? Where can I buy the nutritional yeast?

    Nutritional yeast will give it a cheesy flavor without adding any cheese if you leave it out the latkes will have less flavor. I would add more spices or real cheese. You can find it almost anywhere- Target, Walmart, Trader Joes, Amazon and most supermarkets sell it as well.
