My husband bought a humongous bag of potatoes a few weeks ago and I was starting to worry that they would sprout and go bad before I had a chance to use them up. I decided this would be a good opportunity to try out a new recipe,. Vegan potato latkes! So yummy, but if you are trying to watch your weight this recipe might not be a good option since you use so much oil to fry them in. Prep time about 15 minutes, cook time about 20.
3 lbs of potatoes
1 medium onion
1 egg replacer
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp baking powder
Olive oil for frying
Apple sauce and vegan sour cream for dipping
Peel and cut potatoes into chunks. Using the grate blade on your food processor grate all the potatoes and the onion. You can grate by hand with a cheese grater but it will probably take you 3 weeks. I wasn’t going to even make this recipe if I couldn’t find the grate attachment for the food processor. 3lbs of potatoes is A LOT of taters. In a bowl add the rest of the ingredients and mix them together with the grated potato and onion.
Heat the oil on medium in a large pan spoon in the potato mixture into the pan into little pancake patties about 3- 4 inches in diameter. Cook for 2-3 minutes then flip. Continue cooking and flipping until both sides are golden brown.
Serve with applesauce and vegan sour cream.
