Traditional latkes get a lightened-up makeover with this cheesy recipe! Instead of frying the latkes, these ones are baked for a healthier, crispy dish. We also subbed some of potatoes with riced cauliflower for added nutrients. Top with Greek yogurt and green onions or your favorite latke toppings.

Nutrition Tip: Cauliflower is both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich, and may boost both your heart and brain health.

Instructions
