Happy Hanukkah and Potato Pancake recipe (Gluten, Dairy, Corn, Soy and Refined Sugar Free)
I want to post my potato pancake recipe for all of you who celebrate Hanukkah. I hope you enjoy these and have a Happy Hanukkah! Even if you don't celebrate Hanukkah, they are good for any occasion.
6 medium russet potatoes peeled, shredded and dried thoroughly (I use the shredding blade on my food processor, or you can hand grate them on a box grater. Make sure they are very dry before mixing them with the other ingredients, I usually leave them laying out on a cloth to absorb the water)
1 medium onion grated
6 or more tablespoons brown rice flour
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
freshly ground black pepper
In a bowl combine potatoes and onion. Beat egg in a separate small bowl and add to potatoes and onion. Add flour, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Mix until combined. Mixture should be wet, but hold together to form a pancake. If not add more flour a tablespoon at a time until it starts to hold together.
Heat a cast iron skillet on medium. Add olive oil. Scoop 1/4 cup at a time into your hands and press into a flat pancake. Cook for about 5 minutes per side until lightly browned. Remove to a cloth lined dish to absorb extra oil. Sprinkle with Himalayan salt.
