This year channukah is from 22nd of December 22nd to the 29th. As the festival of lights approaches, here is a vegan take on a traditional channukah dish- potato latkes, typically made with eggs.

Vegan Latkes

2 medium russet potatoes, cleaned and coarsely grated

2 TBL ground flax seeds

1/4 cup diced onion

1/2 tsp sea salt

oil for sauteing


Heat a griddle or large saute pan on high heat. Combine all ingredients except oil in a mixing bowl and mix well. Well oil the griddle or pan. Place 1-2 tablespoons of the potato mixture on the pan and cook for until the bottom is browned, approximately 3 minutes. Gently flip and cook until brown. Remove from pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve with apple sauce or vegan sour creme.

Variation: Replace potatoes with yam or sweet potato.

Vegan Sour Cream

2 cups Vegan Mayonnaise, see recipe

1 1/2 Tbl. Lemon or lime juice, fresh squeezed

1 1/2 tsp. Green onion ( the greenest part ) or chives, minced

1/2 tsp Dill, fresh, minced ( or 1/4 tsp. dry )


1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well

Vegan Mayonnaise

2 1/4 Cups Safflower oil

1 Cup Soy milk

1 Tbl Maple syrup or agave nectar

3/4 tsp Sea salt, or to taste

2-2 1/2 Apple cider vinegar, raw or lemon juice, fresh squeezed

1/2 tsp Dijon mustard


1. Combine all ingredients except vinegar or lemon juice in blender, blending until smooth. Slowly add vinegar or lemon juice until liquid thickens.

    Wow, this is great! My friend who hates onions as much as I do just did a vegan latke version using parsnips in place of the onions, they worked out really well. I will have to give your recipes here a try too. Stumbled!

    Do you think the mayo recipe would work with peanut milk? I would love to try it, but I’m soy intolerant and don’ think almond milk would be a good replacement.
