potato latkes

Usually this recipe would include eggs but I like to cook without eggs for a number of reasons.

One simple reason is to stay food combined properly for optimum digestion. Proteins and carbs fight in the digestive system.  Also, I find that potatoes stick well enough together without anything else.



2 medium potatoes, coarsely grated
1 onion, finely chopped
1 – 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
Almond oil or ghee


  1. Mix all potatoes, onions, garlic and salt together.
  2. Drop teaspoon size pancakes into hot oil or ghee (I prefer ghee for the flavour it adds).
  3. Brown on both sides.
  4. Serve with salsa.Makes 10-12 small latkes.
