The water issue is easily remedied... after cooking your cauliflower, put it into a clean dish towel and wring out the excess liquid. The consistency of the latkes is greatly improved via this method.

Why does this count 1/2 meat? Dietitian comment: The 1/2 meat is from the 2 eggs and 2 egg whites (technically 1/2 protein, but eggs and other high quality protein sources are grouped with meat).

Let the cauliflower drain in a colander for a while before frying, and it won't be too watery. This recipe is a family favorite!
