Cauliflower & Potato Latkes

Ingredients:

* Six medium potatoes
* Half of a medium-size cauliflower head
* One cup of Whole wheat flour
* 2 Eggs
* One quarter of a medium onion
* One quarter of a medium clove of garlic
* Salt and pepper (to taste)
* Flax Seed (this ingredient is completely voluntary, but I add it because it’s healthy and easy to sneak it for added nutrition)

Directions:

1. Peel the potatoes.
2. In a food processor, shred the cauliflower, potatoes, garlic and onion. (If a food processor is not available, manually shred the cauliflower and potatoes, and finely chop the garlic and onion).
3. Add the flower, eggs, flax seeds, salt and pepper.
4. Mix.
5. Preheat a skillet with your choice of vegetable oil.
6. Doll out spoon-size chunks of the mixture. Flip after about two minutes (each side should be golden brown and crispy on the outside).
7. Enjoy with some sour cream or apple sauce.
