Say that 3 times fast. I usually make a sweet version of Cottage Cheese Pancakes for breakfast but instead I used plain cottage cheese and some savory herbs and spices and came up with a faux latke or potato pancake.
Shelly's Potato-less Potato Pancakes
1/2 cup Cottage Cheese
3 Tablespoons Whole Wheat Flour (I used Arrowhead Mills Multigrain Pancake Mix)
2 Tablespoons Chives, snipped
1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 Tablespoon Fresh Parsley, chopped
1/4 teaspoon Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Whiz in mini food processor. Spray pan with non-stick spray. Cook on low till bubbles appear, flip. Cook till done. Serve with sour cream. Makes 4 small latkes (pictured) or 8 silver dollar size.
Replace chives with dill. This would be a great side with fish. Omit salt and chives and add instead a tablespoon of grated parmesan and chopped basil serve with a dollop of ricotta cheese. Mix a little creamy horseradish and sour cream and top latkes with a dollop and some sliced smoked salmon.
Serve for breakfast with an over-easy egg.
My pal Charlie over at OH has nicknamed these Chinese Latkes because I made them on Chinese New Year. Happy Chinese New Year!
