Recipe of the Week: Cheese Latkes


  • 1 cup low-fat ricotta or cottage cheese
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 egg, 2 egg whites
  • 2 tbsp zero calorie sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Nonstick cooking oil spray, for frying


  1. Combine all ingredients, except the non-stick oil in a food processor.
  2. Process the mixture for about 45 seconds, pausing a couple of times to scrape the sides, until the mixture forms a thick batter.
  3. Spray a pan with cooking spray and heat over medium.
  4. Use a spoon to scoop up the batter, then pour it onto the hot pan in the size/shape of silver dollar pancakes.
  5. Use 1-2 tablespoons of batter per pancake.
  6. Spread it out into a thin circle after it hits the skillet.
  7. Heat the latkes for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn golden brown.
  8. Test the first latke for doneness and make sure it’s cooked all the way through; if the latkes are browning faster than they’re cooking, reduce heat.
  9. Serve immediately.

Makes 8 latkes. Count 2 as: a complete breakfast or lunch, just add a fruit or vegetables. Enjoy!
