Vegan Latkes

Mazel tov: latkes that don't use eggs

Nava Atlas

P>Serves 12

2/3 cup quick-cooking oats (oatmeal)
6 large potatoes, peeled and finely grated
1 medium carrot, grated
1 medium onion, finely grated
1/2 cup matzo meal
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Light vegetable oil for frying
Applesauce 

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.
