Calories: 29kcal


  • 2 packed cups potatoes (shredded or grated. I used Yukon gold potatoes. Russet are fine too)
  • 1 1/2 packed cups sauerkraut (Make sure you drain out any liquid)
  • 2 tbsp chopped rosemary or oregano (You can use another herb of your choice. Thyme would be great here, or sage)
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour (sub an equal amount of chickpea flour for a gluten-free version)
  • 1/2 cup aquafaba (chickpea brine)
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil (for frying. I used avocado. Peanut oil is good too)


  • Place the grated potatoes, sauerkraut and herbs in a bowl. Add the all-purpose flour, salt, pepper and stir in the aquafaba. Mix well and let stand for 5-10 minutes.
  • Mix the batter once again thoroughly before beginning to make the latkes, to ensure that the liquid hasn't all pooled at the bottom.
  • Heat a large cast iron skillet or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan
  • Drop the batter into the skillet with a heaping tablespoon and immediately flatten into a pancake using the back of the spoon or a ladle. Make sure the pancakes aren't too close (I cook four at a time in my 16-inch cast iron skillet)
  • When the edges are browned, check if the bottom of the pancake looks golden-brown. Turn the pancakes over and continue to brown on the other side.
  • Serve hot. You can serve with vegan sour cream or applesauce, but we to tear into these without any accompaniments.
