Potato Fritters with Cashew Cream Cheese (vegan)

Hi my loves! ?

… and once again I have a super easy, delicious and vegan recipe for you! I guess everyone should know and love the recipe from “Granny‘s Kitchen“ – I‘m talking about potato fritters, or also called “potato pancakes”! ?

These pancakes are only made from potatoes and a bit of flour. The flour ensures that it also applies to moisture retention, even for the “perfect hold”. Usually there is also an egg added, but anyway, it also works without animal products.

Traditionally, potato pancakes are served with applesauce, but I also find them very delicious in the savory variety combined with fried mushrooms, some fresh spring onions and a vegan herb dip. I prefer to make the dip just from cashew nuts and herbs. This also turns out super creamy and tasty even without any dairy products ?.
Moreover these fritters are also very suitable and delicious as “Burger-Pattys” ?? Click here for the burger recipe: Potato Fritter Burger with Carrot Apple Salad

      I think cashew nuts are just perfect to make dairy-free dips, sauces and spreads.
      Much love,
      Bianca ?
