Vegan Potato pancakes (hashbrowns)

I don’t know anything about your Saturday from childhood but mine looked like this.

I woke up at 10 am and the first thing I had to do was to clean up. Firstly, I cleaned the dust from the furniture and then vacuumed the whole house. Sometimes I was even cleaning the glasses and mirrors like a good boy ๐Ÿ™‚ But what made my Saturdays so special and unforgettable (besides not going to school) was all sort of yummy dishes. Like potato pancakes for example ๐Ÿ™‚ I just loved their smell which was spreading from room to room and also I loved eating them while they were still super hot. Actually, I still eat them the same way, even today, 20 years later ๐Ÿ™‚ The only difference is in the cooking process. I learned how to make them without eggs (vegan version) but still managed to keep the full taste as they would be the ones from my childhood. And today I will share the recipe with you. Enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚

And what about your Saturdays? Were you also cleaning or you had other rituals? Let me know in a comment below ๐Ÿ™‚ Ciao.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 500g of potatoes, grated thinly

  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced

  • Bunch of fresh parsley, finely chopped

  • 3 spoons of all-purpose flour

  • Salt & Pepper to taste

  • Vegetable oil for frying

  • Vegan egg – 2 tablespoons of grated flax-seed mixed with 4 tablespoons of hot boiling water


  • In a bigger bowl mix the grated potatoes, minced garlic, flour, chopped parsley and the vegan egg. Season with salt and black pepper and mix well.
  • Heat up some vegetable oil on a pan and deep fry the pancakes. I like to shape them with a spoon and keep the thickness around 1 cm. If they will be too thick they might stay raw in the middle.
  • Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
