LOOKING for: Vegan latkes

GardenerDecember 17, 2000

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.

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. :-)
