For those of us who stick to our food plan through thick and thin, these "Latkes" really do the trick. They are easy to make and taste "just like latkes". Even my husband and my daughter tasted them and said that they couldn't believe how much they tasted like regular potato latkes. The friend who gave me this recipe suggested several alternatives such as grinding dried dates into the mixture and omitting the spices, or use half egg whites and half farmer cheese. She also told me that she enjoys adding in mashed cauliflower to the mixtures. The possibilities are endless, the food is delicious, and very healthy. Enjoy!
2 ounces of oatmeal
4 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 cup of water
dash of pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1) Cook the oatmeal, water and spices in the microwave for six minutes (or in a pot until the oatmeal is soft and the water is absorbed, about 5 minutes).
2) Preheat a nonstick pan and spray with Pam.
3) Mix the cooked oatmeal with the egg whites. Drop small spoon fulls of the mixture onto the frying pan and cook until brown and crispy on both sides.
Sorry, the contest is over.
