Low Carb Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes

Potato pancakes or Latkas are a favourtie in our house but as everyone knows potatoes are very high in carbs and calories. Swap out the high carb potatoes for low carb cauliflower and you have a great low carb dinner. Be sure when you are draining the cauliflower that you drain it very well to get rid of as much liquid as you possibly can. Once mashed it wouldn’t be a bad idea to press it in a strainer or paper towel to get rid of more water. This will ensure the pancakes are not too mushy in the middle.

Serve hot pancakes with sour cream and top with more shredded cheddar.

  1. Cut cauliflower into florets & cook in boiling water until tender (10 minutes) then drain. Mash the cauliflower while still warm. Stir cheese, eggs, panko, nutritional yeast flakes, cayenne, and salt.
  2. Coat the bottom of a griddle or skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. Form the cauliflower mixture into patties about 3 inches across. (I usually use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop out the batter, then press the mixture down). Cook until golden brown (about 3 minutes per side). Keep each batch warm in the oven while you cook the rest.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
