Broccoli Cheddar Latkes

Potato latkes are as exciting as vanilla ice cream. I'm sure there are the purists who believe it's best to stick with tradition, but I like to mix things up in the kitch. This year, I'm giving the latke a serious makeover, starting with this recipe for broccoli cheddar latkes!

Ingredients:

1 lb. of broccoli florets, chopped and steamed
1 russet potato, peeled and grated
1 small onion, diced
1/2 cup of panko crumbs
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup canola oil
oil for frying

Directions:

Steam and chop the broccoli florets. Place in large mixing bowl. Add the grated potato, diced onion, panko crumbs pepper, salt, cayenne pepper, flour, cheese and oil and mix well. Shape into patties and fry until golden brown.

Recipe from Kosher In The Kitch blogger, Nina Safar.

Quickfit Tip Of The Day

white 1

Eat more vegetables with soup!

Vegetable soup is a great way to get more vegetables into your diet without the hassle. When the weather gets colder, its harder to eat a salad than something hot and steamy. I also like to have a pot of vegetable soup in the fridge as a low-calorie and nutritious snack. In a large pot of water, add a variety of your favorite vegetables: I often use cabbage, carrots, peppers, garlic, fennel, squash, fresh herbs - whatever looks good and is on sale. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, and reduce to low until vegetables are soft. Now this is where you can get creative! Garnish with ingredients like salsa, avocado and crushed tortilla chips or parmesan cheese and croutons.
