Cauliflower Latkes in Celebration of Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah! I’m a little late, my apologies!!! I love learning about different cultures and their traditions. Last Tuesday at the Manhattan Beach Farmers Market, the Jewish Community Center was frying up some potato latkes. I decided to go home and make some myself, without the eggs. Here’s what I was able to come up with. I used the cauliflower from my garden, instead of potatoes. (The local nursery sold me seedlings that were labeled ‘celery’ and when I asked why they didn’t look like celery, I was told told they were a special type of celery. Low and behold, weeks later, I now have these beautiful big heads of cauliflower!….oh the wonders of nature….)

Steam in 1/2” of water

1/2 of a medium head of cauliflower (cut into small florets) and 1/2 of a minced onion, with a little salt

Drain well.


2 cups cooked garbanzo beans

2 T chopped parlsey

3 cloves minced garlic

Blend this mixture in your food processor, being sure not to over pulse…you want it to be a little chunky.

In a separate bowl, combine the following dry ingredients

1/2 c garbanzo bean flour

1 1/2 T ground flax seed

1/2 tsp ground cumin

salt and pepper to taste

Add the cauliflower mixture with the dry ingredients

Form into patties about 1/2” thick and 3” in diameter. You would have 8-10 patties.

Warm 2 T avocado oil in a cast iron skillet and crisp each side for 5 minutes.

Serve warm with a side of muun chi CoCoFir.

I want to give each of you a giant hug and let you know how grateful I am to have you in my life!!! Happy holidays dear friends! I love you!

I love to cook seasonly. Asparagus is at all the markets now, peaking April and May. Look for asparagus that is firm and bright green, the tips may be a little purplish. If its mushy or shriveling,

Avocados are packed with all kinds of goodness! I use it in place of butter in lots of my baking. Using it in a dressing adds to a thicker consistency and pairs well with the CoCoFir. This dressing
