Here’s my tried-and-true vegan latkes recipe (our mainstay at Hanukkah for many years now) in which the grated potato is held together with oatmeal in place of the customary eggs. For a gluten-free version, quinoa flakes work splendidly. A bit of grated carrot adds extra color and flavor.

Latkes [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Serves

3-4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats or quinoa flakes to make it grain-free
  • 6 medium-large Yukon gold or red potatoes, peeled (if leaving unpeeled, scrub well)
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup matzo meal (or 1/2 cup additional quinoa flakes for grain-free)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Safflower or other high-heat vegetable oil for frying
  • Applesauce
  • Vegan sour cream (optional)

Preparation

  1. In a heatproof bowl, combine the oats or quinoa flakes with 1 1/2 cups boiling water. Stir and set aside while preparing the other ingredients.
  2. Combine the grated potato, carrot, and onion, and matzo meal in a mixing bowl. Stir in the oatmeal, then season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat just enough oil to coat the bottom of a large, nonstick skillet or griddle. Drop enough potato batter to form 2 1/2 or 3-inch pancakes. Fry on both sides over medium-high heat until golden brown and crisp.

Would tahini hold them together? Just a thought.

Oh, but it's a seed. Kosher for Hanukkah but not for Passover?

So much extra stuff in these!! All you need is shredded potatoes and chopped onion. Fry in canola oil and you're done. Just did it last night!
