Here's latkes without egg or wheat or dairy.
Just potatoes( shredding without ruining a manicure is a feat!)
Onions shredded as well
And I use Glutino cake and cookie mix to thicken. Or their muffin mix.
Mix with hands and fry in hot oil-- olive oil for me-- on medium. And try not to " taste test " them all.
The minestrone recipe is in my cookbook.
