A vegan take on a classic Hanukkah treatAquafaba, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes,
If your latkes are falling apart:
You can use any latke recipe and just substitute 3 Tbsp (45 mL) of aquafaba for every egg.
Does your chickpea water look too runny to resemble an egg? Put it in a pot and boil off some liquid.
You can hand-shred your potatoes if you’re a purist. Otherwise you can do a wet chop in your Vitamix. We got a great consistency (and saved our knuckles) by using this method.
The trick with latkes is to get the potatoes as dry as possible before adding the "eggs" and flour. We used the filtration bag that came with our Vitamix.
Fry your latkes until they are just golden brown and put them on paper towel to soak up some oil.
Serve them with "sour cream" and a little green garnish.
Or with homemade apple sauce.
Or if you're feeling sassy, both!
