We're trying to make latkes without egg. We need a way to bind the grated zucchini and potato while frying. Any ideas?
I have made them without egg with very little trouble, adding only a small amount of flour to soak up the pototo liquid and hold them together slightly while cooking. I have also thought of adding a small amount of pureed tofu in place of the egg, but have yet to try it.
Thanks, Carole. We'll give your ideas a try.
That's like trying to make milkshakes without milk. That's one of the reasons we have eggs, use them!!!
Nonsense! I've seen recipes using only flour.Try adding a bit of cornstarch or arrowroot as a binder, if they're too loose.
You'll find the results w/o egg lighter & more delicate.Easier to digest too.
Eugene, some vegetarians don't eat eggs, and some non vegetarians can't eat them, that's why we have alternatives. :-)
