Vegan Latkes

Whether you make latkes for the holidays or all year round, here is a herbalicious take on the potato cakes.

Vegan Latkes

Serves 4


  • 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
  • Applesauce

  1. Grate the potatoes on the largest grating side of a hand grater. Drain the potatoes in a colander, pressing out the liquid.
  2. Place the onion in the bowl of a food processor and coarsely chop.
  3. Add potatoes, egg replacement, matzo, salt and pepper, baking powder, and herbs. Process until well combined.
  4. Pour about 1/8-inch of oil in a large heavy skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
  5. Drop a large spoonful of batter into the skillet and flatten it with the spoon to make a thin pancake.
  6. Cook for 2 minutes on both sides or until lightly browned and crisp, adding more oil if necessary.
  7. Drain the latkes on paper towels and keep them warm until all the latke mixture is cooked.
  8. Serve latkes immediately with vegan sour cream and applesauce.
