A vegan and gluten-free take on the classic potato latke recipe. These potato pancakes are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They are seasoned to perfection and made with six simple ingredients. No egg or matzo meal required and yet they still stay together.
Nothing says Hanukkah like the smell of latkes frying in the kitchen. Even if you aren’t celebrating Hanukkah, this easy appetizer is a show stopper and totally addictive. I have never met anyone who doesn’t love latkes. They are basically like onion-scented french fries in pancake form. Yes, please!
Ingredients for crispy potato latkes
You most likely already have the ingredients you need for these easy crispy potato latkes in your pantry. To make this vegan and gluten-free appetizer you will need:
- Russet potatoes
- White onion
- Arrowroot powder/starch (this is to help bind them since we are not using an egg or matzo meal)
- Seasonings: garlic powder, salt and pepper
Simple, right? The latkes are pan-fried in olive oil and then traditionally served with apple sauce or sour cream.
