Ingredients:

  • Sunday Prep Day:
    • 1 small head cauliflower, about 6-8 cups processed
    • 1 ½ cups scallions, diced
  • Day 2 & Day 4:
    • 1 tablespoon flaxmeal
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 3-4 teaspoons ghee, for cooking
    • 2 tablespoons sour cream, to serve (1 tablespoon per serving)
    • 1/2 avocado, to serve (1/4 avocado per serving)

Directions:

  1. (Sunday Prep Day) Chop cauliflower into florets and place in a food processor. Process for several seconds, until the florets are broken down and resemble rice. You may need to do this in batches. Divide cauliflower rice into 2 separate medium bowls, one for Day 2 and one for Day 4. Cover and refrigerate. Dice scallions and divide into 2 separate small bowls, one for Day 2 and one for Day 4. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. (Day 2 and Day 4) Remove one bowl of cauliflower and one bowl of scallions from the fridge. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add all remaining ingredients, except ghee and toppings.
  3. Use a spatula to mix until well combined.
  4. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add ½ teaspoon ghee and heat until melted. Swirl to coat the bottom of the skillet. Add about 1/3 cup latke batter and press into a pancake shape. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes, and then flip.
  5. Repeat step 4 until you have used all of the batter, making about 6 latkes.
  6. To serve, top each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream and ¼ avocado, sliced.
  7. Day 2: tightly wrap leftover avocado ½, to be used Day 4.
