Potato Tempeh Latkes


Potato Onion Tempeh Latkes – To Fry, or Not to Fry?

It’s not too late to do this vegan, super tasty version of potato latkes. You can just pop them in a hot oven and avoid the frying part all together. That’s why you used the gently fried then dehydrated ground onions and mixed them with both Aspergillus spp. and Rhizopus spp. spores (koji and tempeh) in the first place, no?

Okay you could fry these if you like just remember they will get very dark very fast if you push it at 375F for more than 2 minutes. Think tempura. Actually dipping these in a tempura batter is a pretty dope thing to do.

There’s a really cool discussion about how to use mixed spores at Rich Shih’s @ourcookquest https://www.instagram.com/p/CTyIWmlIy8-/ What’s In The Jar? series.

We also have a recording of Markus Shimuzu and Ken Fornataro and Will Moffat and Nick Repenning and Mallory O’Donnell and Estéban Yepes Montoya and Sandor Katz talking about it in our new creaking under the weight of too many videos InRetrospect program.
