These Cauliflower Latkes are perfect for Hanukkah or Passover. They are healthier and lower in carbohydrates than traditional potato pancakes. They are also easier to prepare.

When cooking, be sure to adjust the heat when frying. If you fry on too high heat – or with too little oil – the pancakes might burn and too low of heat will cause the pancakes to be mushy rather than crisp. Use enough oil when frying so that the pancakes won't burn, but don't use so much oil that the pancakes are oily.
