- 2 Russet potatoes
- 1 medium onion
- 1/4 cup (25g) chickpea flour
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
How it’s Done:
Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with a non-stick Silpat mat or a piece of parchment paper.
To make the latkes: Peel and quarter the potatoes and onion. Set up the large hole opening on a food processor slicing blade. You can also use a box grater.
Feed the onions and potatoes through the food processor.
Transfer the shredded onion and potato to a clean kitchen towel, set up over a colander. Squeeze the onion potato mixture to get out as much of the moisture as you can. Discard these juices.
Transfer the squeezed onion potato mixture to a mixing bowl. Add the chickpea flour, garlic powder, baking powder, and salt. Use your hands to mix well. Line a large sheet pan with a non-stick baking mat or spray lightly with oil.
Portion about 1/4 cup of the potato onion mixture for each latke. Flatten with your hands. This should make about 15-16 latkes.
To bake the latkes: Bake at 425 for 30 minutes. Flip after the first 20 minutes.
Serve immediately with applesauce.
Yield: 16 latkes
Chef Katie’s Tips:
Wanting Oil? If you’re craving a more traditional version, using oil, don’t use the parchment paper or Silpat. Rather, spray the baking sheet with oil (canola is best). Reduce the baking time by 5 minutes.
Make Ahead and Freezer-Friendly: Make a double-batch of these. After baking them in the oven, store extra in an air-tight container (
Chickpea Flour, Basan, Garbanzo Bean Flour: Chickpea flour is sometimes also called Garbanzo bean flour. In Indian markets, it’s called Besan. For a gluten-free, Celiac-safe frittata, double-check to make sure your flour is certified gluten-free.
