Vegan Latkes

No recipe image available."You can find recipes for traditional latkes, in which the grated potato is held together with eggs, almost anywhere, but a vegan version is harder to come by. Here, the latkes are held together with something just as sticky as eggs — oatmeal! It works splendidly. I've also added a carrot for extra color." - Nava Altas.

Recipe Ingredients:

2/3 cup quick-cooking oats (oatmeal)
6 large potatoes, peeled and finely grated
1 medium carrot, grated
1 medium onion, finely grated
1/2 cup matzo meal
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Light vegetable oil for frying
Applesauce for accompaniment

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a heat-proof bowl, combine the oats with 1 1/3 cup 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 ground black 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 to 3-inch pancakes. Fry on both sides over medium-high heat until golden brown and crisp.
  4. Drain briefly on paper towels and place in a covered container to keep warm until serving. Serve warm with applesauce.

Makes about 3 dozen.
