vegan style Latkes
Whether you make latkes for the holidays or all year round, here is a herbalicious take on the potato cakes.
Ingredients: 6 medium potatoes
1 small onion, quartered
Egg replacement equivalent to 2 eggs
1/4 cup matzo meal
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Pinch of baking powder
Handful of fresh herbs of your choice, coarsely chopped
Vegetable oil for frying
Vegan sour cream
Directions: Grate the potatoes on the largest grating side of a hand grater. Drain the potatoes in a colander, pressing out the liquid.
Place the onion in the bowl of a food processor and coarsely chop.
Add potatoes, egg replacement, matzo, salt and pepper, baking powder, and herbs. Process until well combined.
Pour about 1/8-inch of oil in a large heavy skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
Drop a large spoonful of batter into the skillet and flatten it with the spoon to make a thin pancake.
Cook for 2 minutes on both sides or until lightly browned and crisp, adding more oil if necessary.
Drain the latkes on paper towels and keep them warm until all the latke mixture is cooked.
Serve latkes immediately with vegan sour cream and applesauce.
