VEGAN LATKES Makes about 3 dozen You can find recipes for traditional latkes, in which the grated potato is held together with eggs, almost anywhere, so I thought I'd off…er my vegan version. In it, the grated potato is held together with something just as sticky as eggs (oatmeal!) and it works splendidly. I've also added a carrot for extra color..
2/3 cup quick-cooking oats (oatmeal) .
6 large potatoes, peeled and finely grated .
1 medium carrot, grated .
1 medium onion, finely grated .
l/2 cup matzo meal .
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste .
Light vegetable oil for frying .
In a heatproof bowl, combine the oats with 1 1/3 cup boiling water. Stir and set aside while preparing the other ingredients. Combine the grated potato, carrot, and onion, and matzo meal in a mixing bowl. Stir in the oatmeal, then season with salt and pepper. 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. Drain briefly on paper towels and place in a covered container to keep warm until serving. Serve warm with applesauce.
