Tasty Potato Latkes
Ingredients
4
medium potatoes, about 1 1/2 pounds
3
tablespoons olive oil
2
eggs, slightly beaten
2
cloves garlic (optional)
1/2
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons cooking oil
 
Non-dairy sour cream
Directions
  1. Peel and finely shred potatoes. In a mixing bowl combine potatoes with olive oil, eggs, garlic (if desired), and salt. Using 1/3 cup mixture for each latke, press mixture into patties about the size of the palm of your hand, squeezing out excess liquid.
  2. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Carefully slide patties into hot oil.
  3. Cook over medium-high heat about 2 minutes or until latkes are golden brown, turning once.
  4. Repeat with remaining batter. Add additional cooking oil during cooking, as needed.
  5. If necessary, reduce heat to medium to prevent overbrowning. Drain on paper towels and keep warm. Serve with non-dairy sour cream, if desired. Makes about 10 latkes. (Nutrition information is given per latke plus 1 teaspoon non-dairy sour cream.)
