Latkes is Yiddish for potato pancakes. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, the pancakes in this recipe are made entirely without egg and are therefore vegan. In place of onions – which are traditionally used with potatoes – the leek, combined with caraway seeds and a dash of lemon, gives these pancakes their special flavour. Serve with a fresh tzatziki dip.
