Potato latkes, also known as potato pancakes, make the perfect traditional holiday meal, and now you can enjoy them allergy-free! These Gluten-Free Vegan Potato Latkes are so easy to make, you’ll be enjoying them any time of year!
It’s that time of year again, where potato pancakes have a shining moment in the spotlight, thanks to the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. Also known as latkes, potato pancakes have a rather fascinating history and I love foods that last over thousands of years to celebrate cultural beliefs and values. A lot of power for a little pancake, huh?!
So aside from having a lot of roots in the Hanukkah tradition, I love how easy these Gluten-Free Vegan Potato Pancakes are to make! Minimal ingredients are needed and they can easily be made gluten-free and vegan. And of course I’m serving them up with some of my homemade Golden Delicious Cinnamon Applesauce that I developed using Stemilt golden delicious apples.
You’ll simply grate the potatoes into a large bowl fitted with a kitchen towel to squeeze the excess liquid from the potatoes. Then combine with grated onion, gluten-free flour, flax eggs, salt and pepper. Form the mixture into patties and then fry them in oil. Adding flax eggs not only replaces the eggs that are sometimes used in potato pancakes, and also acts as a binder, but it also offers some added fiber and omega-3’s.
Garnish with fresh chives and you have yourself a delicious plant-based meal in just about 45 minutes, depending on how fast of a peeler you are 😉 Fingers were harmed in the making of this recipe… watch your fingers people, I definitely peeled the tip of my finger while making this recipe, haha.
Anyway, I hope you love this recipe and it stands up to your traditional holiday expectations! You can read more about the history of potato latkes in this article. I’d love to hear your thoughts, so be sure to leave a review and a comment below!
