Latkes, also known as potato pancakes, are delicious — after all, they're made from potatoes! Typically, they are fried and loaded with oil and fat ... Enter these equally-as-delicious, slightly crispy, oven-baked, oil-free latkes! Seriously, that is unheard of in the latke world. Serve these with a dollop of vegan sour cream or applesauce for the perfect flavor pairing.

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F, spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray, and set aside.
  2. In small mixing bowl, combine ground flax with water and set aside.
  3. Add potatoes and onions to high-speed blender or food processor, and process until they appear to be chopped finely.
  4. Pour into colander and let drain for 10 minutes, pressing down with a paper towel occasionally to soak up excess moisture.
  5. Place potato and onion mixture in large mixing bowl, add in remaining ingredients (including flax mixture), and stir to combine.
  6. Form into 14 equal-sized patties, and place on baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for 10 minutes, flip again and bake for 5 minutes, flip again and bake for 5 minutes. Repeat this until desired brown-ness is reached (mine were done after three flips).
  7. Top with applesauce or vegan sour cream
