These latke-inspired vegetable cakes use convenient, low-carb cauliflower rice in place of potatoes, and they’re cooked in a waffle maker for both speed texture—they end up wonderfully crispy. Shredded (or chopped) mozzarella cheese sticks help to bind the mixture and contribute to the crispy effect. The accompanying creamy horseradish sauce adds a little kick to each bite. Though we call for parsley and chives, you can use any of your favorite herbs; just be sure to use smaller amounts of strong herbs like rosemary or thyme.
