Top 5 Hanukkah Recipes!

Wowweee! It’s been a whirl­wind Hanukkah sea­son! I thought I would take a moment to big up some deli­cious vegan Hanukkah recipes for those of you who are won­der­ing what the heck you can eat at your fam­ily and friends’ gatherings.

1. Latkes– OBVIOUSLY! Check out my recipe below!

Jamie’s Vegan Latkes

Ingre­di­ents:

1 1/2 pounds of organic potatoes

3 large yel­low onions

3 or 4 large car­rots (optional)

Hand­ful of  fresh pars­ley (3 or 4 table­spoons chopped)

Fresh or dried thyme (2 table­spoons) (optional)

1/3 cup of spelt flour

1/2 tea­spoon of bak­ing powder

1 tea­spoon of egg-replacer in an egg’s worth of warm water

Salt and pepper

Organic Canola Oil

Prepa­ra­tion:

Pre­heat the oven to 250 degrees F. After you’re done fry­ing them, you can keep the latkes warm in a casse­role dish or on an oven safe plate until they are ready to be eaten.

Peel pota­toes and grate them. Remove outer skin from onions and coarsely chop in a food proces­sor or grate. Peel and grate car­rots. Place pota­toes, onions, car­rots, flour, bak­ing pow­der, salt, pep­per, pars­ley and thyme in a large bowl and mix together. In a sep­a­rate lit­tle bowl, mix egg replacer in about 2 table­spoons of warm water. Mix until all the egg replacer has dis­solved. Pour mix­ture onto latke bat­ter and combine.

Put a fry­ing pan over medium high heat and wait until the pan is thor­oughly heated before pour­ing canola oil. Tip: to ensure the latkes won’t stick, let the pan heat up for 3– 4 min­utes before pour­ing the oil in.

Splash some oil in the pan (enough to cover the bot­tom of the pan). Use a table­spoon to scoop out latke mix­ture and drop into pan. Watch out as the oil is hot! Repeat with how­ever many latkes you can fit into the pan depend­ing on its size. Let fry for 2–3 min­utes or until golden brown then flip and let them fry on the other side for 2–3 min­utes. Repeat with rest of the latke bat­ter until you’ve use it all up. You will need to keep adding more oil to the pan as needed.

I like to put out a sheet of paper towel to place my cooked latkes on to absorb the oil while I’m fry­ing the rest of the bat­ter. Then I place them in a casse­role dish and throw them in the oven until peo­ple are ready to nosh!

2. Vegan Sour Cream.- (Note: recipe at the bot­tom of page– under taco salad recipe)

3. Apple­sauce

4. Maple Roasted Brus­sels Sprouts

5. Rugelach- I use Rasp­berry Jam instead of Apri­cot– feel free to sub­sti­tute nuts as well! ( I also don’t use raisins– it’s really up to you)

 

Enjoy your Hanukkah! Here at Oy Vegan, we want to wish you a new year filled with miracles!
