Vegan Latkes

Makes: 24 latkes
Active time: 1hr

Ingredients

  • 6 large red potatoes, peeled and shredded
  • 1 medium yellow onion, shredded
  • 1 cup matzoh meal
  • 6 tbsp warm water
  • 4 1/2 tbsp Ener-G Egg Replacer
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Canola oil or other neutral oil, for frying
  • Dash ground black pepper

Method

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg replacer and water until fully combined.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the potatoes, onion, salt, pepper, matzoh meal, and the egg replacer mixture. Mix well by hand to thoroughly combine.

  3. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat to 375°F/190°C. While the oil is heating, form the potato mixture into compact patties, using about 3 tablespoons per latke.

  4. When the oil is heated, fry the latkes in batches, no more than 4 or 5 at time—do not overcrowd the skillet. Fry the latkes for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden around the edges. Flip them with a spatula and cook the second side until lightly browned.

  5. Transfer the cooked latkes to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat this process until all the latkes are fried, being sure to watch the oil level and adding more as necessary.

Tip: It’s really important when making these to be conscious of the size of the latke. If you make them too large, they won’t hold together as well and will fall apart when you flip them.
