Here’s my plant-based version of potato pancakes, a recipe that traditionally consists of shallow-fried grated potato, flour, and egg. My recipe here is free of the ingredients that damage our arteries. As a plant lover, I prefer dairy-free toppings, such as the traditional applesauce, or nontraditional choices like salsa, guacamole, or hummus.

Ingredients

  • 2 russet potatoes, grated
  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • ½ yellow onion, grated
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cover two sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. Spread half of the grated vegetables on a clean kitchen towel, then roll and wring the towel to draw out the excess moisture. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Repeat with the remaining vegetables.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the oat flour, baking powder, and pepper. Add to the vegetable bowl, and mix well, using your hands to evenly distribute the flour and baking powder.
  4. Scoop about ¼ cup of potato mixture, and hand-shape it into a semi-tight ball. Flatten with your palms, and place the pancake onto the prepared pan. Repeat with the remaining mix, spacing the pancakes about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes. Flip and bake for another 12 minutes, or to your desired level of crispness. Serve at once. Top with the condiment of your choice.

Spice it up a bit if you say it’s “grossest”. Be creative and nice.

As someone who is highly tolerable of bland food and just eating to survive on a plant based diet, this is the grossest thing I have ever had in my life

I’m quite new to this type of eating. This looks like it would be reasonably good, what exactly was so gross about it
