(Vegan) Potato Latkes

It’s July, but the girls wanted to celebrate Chanukah tonight. We happened to have some potatoes that needed to be used so I happily obliged.

The only problem was, I didn’t have any eggs. No eggs? No problem! That’s where vegan recipes are great! Even though we aren’t vegan, I do like to some vegan recipes and this is one of them. It’s a simplified version of latkes with all natural ingredients.

The girls gobbled them up with a side of apple sauce and sour cream. What’s your favorite way to eat them? Let mw know in the comments below!
