Are you craving Baked Potato Latkes? With Chef, Mark Reinfeld’s permission I am sharing this recipe with you! I learned so much from him when I took an intensive 10 day course from him. I just found out and wanted to share with my everyone that Mark’s newly released cookbook, “The 30 Minute Vegan’s Taste of Europe”, has been named one of the top 5 Cookbooks by Vegetarian Times for 2012! Congrats to you Mark Reinfeld.
Baked Potato Latkes
- 1 large russet potato peeled and grated (2 cups)
- 1/4 teaspoon minced yellow onion
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon white spelt flour
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons water
- 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
- A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes optional
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika optional, try smoked
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. You can speed this process up by using the grater attachment on a food processor for the potatoes.
- Scoop approximately 1/4 cup of the mixture for each latke on to a very well-oiled baking sheet. Flatten to approximately 1/4-inch thick. Bake for 8 minutes.
- Flip the pancakes and bake, until golden brown, approximately 8 minutes before serving.
- Serve with Vegan Sour Cream or Apple Sauce
Make smaller latkes by using 2 tablespoons, instead of 1/4 cup of the batter in each pancake.
Replace 1 cup grated potato with grated sweet potato or yam.
Add 1 tablespoon of minced fresh dill, parsley, or basil.
Add 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion.
Add 1 clove pressed or minced garlic and 1/2 teaspoon seeded and diced chile pepper.
1/2 cup peeled and grated parsnip or carrot.
Create Italian latkes by adding 1 tablespoon Italian Spice Mix
Go Mexican by adding 1 tablespoon minced cilantro and 1 teaspoon each of chile powder and cumin.
Add 1/2 cup grated vegan cheese for an over the top latke experience.
For a gluten-free version replace the spelt flour with brown rice flour.
Vegan Sour Cream
3/4 cup vegan mayonnaise (Vegenaise or home made)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh dill or a pinch of dried dill, optional
Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.

Christina Howell says
I love cooking and this recipe sounds great. I really love how you bake the latkes because I have been doing the baking instead of the frying. I think people sometimes don’t realize that you can get great flavors from baking!
Wanda McHenry says
These look wonderful, I especially like the addition of the pepper flakes and smoked paprika. I’ve never thought of adding different seasonings, I’m the type of person who seems to always make things the same way. Thanks for the recipe and the great ideas!

I like these Vegan Baked Potato latkes. I have made latkes in the past, and I think that this is a flavorful and tasty latkes recipe. I would love to make this!
I’m not g-free but this is a great sounding version of latkes. I don’t eat them much for trying to avoid the frying. Never thought to bake them. Thank you.
