Cauliflower-Zucchini Keto Latkes

Not just for Hanukkah. Crispy, keto-friendly pancakes are a delicious, simple side dish any time of year. Try them with sour cream and smoked salmon for a super supper, or with poached or fried eggs at breakfast. Bonus: you can make them up to 2 days ahead, wrap and refrigerate them, then reheat them on a wire rack set over a baking sheet pan in a 350°F (175°C) oven until crispy and warmed throughout, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Grate the cauliflower and zucchini on the coarse side of a box grater. Place the cauliflower and zucchini in a large mixing bowl, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and mix well. Set aside for 20 minutes.
  • Spoon the cauliflower and zucchini into a paper towel-lined colander. Cover with a few more layers of paper towels and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Place the squeezed vegetables into a clean mixing bowl and add the scallions, almond flour, eggs, onion powder, garlic powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and mix well.
  • In a large non-stick frying pan, heat 4 tablespoons of the clarified butter over medium-high heat. When hot, add the latke mixture in 1 ounce (2 tablespoon) portions, and flatten them out into small, flat pancakes, about 1/2-inch thick. Fry on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, until deep golden brown and crispy. Transfer onto wire rack set over a baking sheet pan. Sprinkle with a little additional sea salt as they are set onto the rack. Repeat with the remaining batter adding additional clarified butter as you do.
  • Serve right away or keep warm in a low oven for up to 2 hours. Serve with the sour cream on the side.
