Potatoes pancakes just might one of the best foods on the planet. Salty and flaky on the outside, while soft and warm on the inside. Do I even need to say anymore?
I grew up knowing them as Polish dish, but they are pretty much the same as Jewish latkes
. That’s why I decided to use a Manischewtiz Potato Pancake mix
—along with some fresh potatoes. I also used olive oil, not vegetable oil for frying.
And yes, fried white potatoes are not the healthiest thing ever, but they are a nice treat once and awhile. Just eat them in moderation and watch your portion sizes. And these are especially good with a side of homemade apple sauce (I’ll post that recipe soon).
This makes 6 servings (not gonna lie, we ate them all).
Vegan Potato Pancakes
1 box ( 3 oz) Potato Pancake Mix, with no eggs or dairy in it
1 large russet potato, shredded or riced (I riced mine)
3/4 cup cold water
Salt and pepper
In a large bowl, combine the mix, shredded or riced potato, egg replacer mixture and water. Mix together well.
Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Don’t put too much oil, this is just shallow pan fry.
Once the oil is hot, drop in a big spoonful (like up to 1/4 cup). It should naturally flatten and spread out. Repeat a few more times, without over crowding the pan. I fit four at a time in mine.
Fry until they are golden on the bottom, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook until golden on the other side.
Remove from the oil and let them drain on a paper towel or wire rack.
Repeat until the batter is gone.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with some apple sauce and you have one tasty meal!
