It's no secret that I love my Vitamix. We love them so much, our family is on their homepage. So when I decided to make latkes last night about five minutes after my kids exclaimed "they were starving" I knew had to make them quick. If you ever have made latkes before you know two things: latkes are crazy delicious and latkes are NOT QUICK. Never one to pass up an opportunity to mess up my kitchen with something new I went to town. Vitamix town.
What You Need:
3 cups chopped & peeled uncooked potatoes
1/4 c flour to add to vitamix and 1/4 c to add to blended mixture
1 small chopped onion
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
How To Make:
1. Add all ingredients to a vitamix or other heavy duty blender.
2. Gradually increase speed until mixture looks choppy. About 20-50 seconds.
3. Add 1/4 cup of flour to mixture by hand. This will increase the batter thickness.
4. Fry. In oil.
5. Add salt. Plate with sour cream & apples.
They came out perfect. My kids raged and ate all of them. Yay Vitamix!! Happy Hanukkah!
