Vegan MoFo Day 2 - Lazy Latkes and Voting Day

Day 2 of Vegan MoFo, and I'm already slacking off. But between rushing around the office, getting home, feeding and walking the dogs, and rushing to vote, I lost all motivation to cook anything fancy.  I usually keep some sort of easy goto food around, and this week I had some frozen organic shredded potato (hash brown) so decided to go for a quick Vegan Latke.  I love the Cascadian Farms organic frozen hash browns because it has one ingredient, shredded potato! This makes it perfect for use in place of regular shredded potatoes for making things like Latkes/Potato Pancakes.

The ingredients were quick and easy:

  • 2c Shredded Potato (If using frozen, let thaw for several minutes)
  • 1tbsp Milled Flax Seed
  • 3tbsp Water
  • 1tbsp Flour
  • Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 1/4c Finely Chopped Onion
  • 1/4tsp Baking Powder
  • Oil for pan frying. ~1/4c or less (I used Grape Seed)


  1. In a bowl, combine the Water and Flax Seed, and let sit for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the Flour, Salt, Pepper, and Baking Powder, and stir.
  3. Add Onion and Potato, and mix till well coated and combined.
  4. In a non-stick (I prefer cast iron) skillet over medium heat, add your oil.
  5. Form int 2-3 patties, and using your spatula slide into the oil.  Let cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown on both.

I like mine served with apple sauce, but you can also use some vegan sour cream, or if you're a wild one both.
