Posts Tagged ‘vegan latkes’

I love fried potatoes!  Especially in the form of a latke.  I made a batch the other night and grazed on the leftovers for a couple of days.  The night of, I served them with pan-fried Veggie Beer Sausage and dollops of dijon and non-dairy sour cream.  This meal is NOT low fat.  But it is super awesome and delicious!

8 potatoes, peeled and grated

1 onion, grated

1/2 cup flour

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper

Canola oil for frying

After peeling and grating the potatoes, squeeze as much water out of them as you can.  Mix with grated onion, flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt & pepper.  Let sit for 20 minutes.  Heat oil (about a half inch deep) on medium heat in a large non-stick pan.  When the oil is hot, scoop the latke mixture with your hand and plop it in the oil.  Not too moulded though. An abstract shape makes for crispy bits around the edges. Cook for a couple minutes on that side, flip and cook a few minutes more.  Kind of a personal gauge thing depending on how hot your oil gets.  Line an oven proof baking dish with an old paper bag and layer the cooked latkes on top and put in the oven to keep warm at 220F.  Make sure to cook all the latkes at once.  The mixture won’t keep, but the latkes sure will!  Serve with Veggie sausage, mustard and non-dairy sour cream for a slavic-ious dinner!
