There are a multitude of recipes you can make for a vegan Hanukkah, but for some reason, I always come back to classic potato and onion latkes.

Of course you can always munch on these crunchy latkes year-round. Enjoy with a dollop of dairy-free sour cream.

Classic Potato Pancakes

3 lbs. baking potatoes, peeled
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
Egg Replacer equivalent of 2 eggs (such as Ener-G Egg Replacer)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 Tbsp. unbleached flour
Oil for frying

  • Grate the potatoes and squeeze out the moisture. In a large mixing bowl, combine the potatoes with all the remaining ingredients, except the oil.
  • Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet. Place 3 Tbsp. of the mixture into the skillet for each latke. Use a spatula to flatten the mixture to form the latke. Fry over medium heat about 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot with apple sauce or soy sour cream.

Makes 6 to 8 servings
