This is a great vegetarian Chanukah alternative to potato latkes. It is quite easy, and dare I say, healthy by Chanukah standards.
From Gil Marks' "Olive Trees and Honey".
1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets
1 onion, minced
1/3 cup parsley, chopped fine
1 cup bread crumbs
3 eggs, beaten
Ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Steam cauliflower and onion for 10 minutes. Combine with parsley, bread crumbs, eggs, salt, pepper and parmesan. Form into oval patties, 2 by 3 inches, tapered at the ends. Fry in vegetable oil (I used vegetable spray) at high heat on a large frying pan or griddle, 3 minutes per side. Keep warm in oven until all fritters are cooked.
Serve with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese, or yogurt.
