Gluten-Free, Vegan Potato Latkes

Challenge: Create a classic potato latke without using wheat flour, milk or eggs. Not an easy task, but after some research and experimenting, these savory fried parcels taste deliciously authentic, and served alongside vegan sour cream and applesauce (bonus points if you have some homemade applesauce left over from Thanksgiving), they’ll disappear quicker than you can fry up another batch.

This recipe was inspired by I Love Vegan’s Vegan Latkes (Potato Pancakes).
