Vegan Potato Latkes, Cashew Sour Cream & Homemade Applesauce

It's the holiday season and we're going to bring our vegan eats into every corner of celebration, starting with Hanukkah. Potato latkes are often made out of a box, always contain egg and are ubiquitously drenched with a dairy sour cream and store bought apple sauce - screw that! Let's make 'em cruelty-free, even healthier and all homemade in 15-20 minutes time...

What you need:

for the applesauce:

2-3 apples of choice
1/2 c water
2 tbl sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

for the latkes:

3 Russet potatoes
1 flax egg (1 tbl flaxmeal + 3 tbl warm water, set to congeal for 5-10 mins)
1 onion (usually white is used, I had only red on hand for the video)
1 tbl sea salt
3 tbl matzo meal (sold in every major grocery store) or flour of choice
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbl nutritional yeast
optional: 3 tbl chives/green onions

for the sour cream:

1 c cashews (soaked overnight, for a few hours in hot water or boiled for 10 mins)
1/2 c water
2 tbl lemon juice
1 probiotic capsule*
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp onion powder


What you do:

Start with the applesauce, as that takes the longest to cook - chop finely for quicker cook time. Place in a pot over medium heat with the remaining ingredients and cover. When soft, mash with a fork.
