  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • Grate together potato, zucchini, cauliflower, and onion. Use a food processor to make this step faster.

  • In a large bowl, combine vegetables with garlic, flour, baking powder, eggs, salt, and pepper.
  • In a frying pan heat ½ inch of oil on medium-high. Carefully drop a heaping tablespoon of latke mixture into oil.
  • Fry for roughly 2 minutes, then flip and fry the other side.
  • Transfer each latke to a paper towel-lined platter.
  • Serve while warm.
