I love latkes. Or, as we (half-)Poles call them, Plaki. There’s just something so comforting about potato pancakes served with a healthy dallop of applesauce or sour cream. Fellow latke lovers will want to check out the Dec 05/Jan 06 issue of Satya for Joshua Ploeg’s latke recipes. Of course, all of them are vegan.
Ealier this week, Huyen whipped up a batch of the sweet potato latkes. We didn’t make the accompanying sauce, opting for some applesauce on the side, instead. I was a bit skeptical of how sweet potatoes would work, but I was floored. They have more depth than the standard latke and have some different layers of flavors than I’m used to. Very, very good.
I’m looking forward to trying the others in the collection, as well as the sauces.
