Vegan Harissa Latkes


I love making different kinds of patties with chickpea flour and eliminating the eggs. It gives a really nice crispy texture and works well with the flavor of potatoes. It also just happens to make the latkes vegan which is a plus for some. I added harissa to the mix and to the sauce for a nice treat. I liked them as patties or balls, so it is up to you, but latke bites are kind of fun and different.
