Eggless latkes

<b>Potato latkes</b><br>
<br>
Prep: 30 minutes<br>
Cook: 50 minutes<br>
Makes: 12 latkes<br>
<br>
<b>Ingredients: </b><br>
3 pounds Russet potatoes<br>
2 teaspoons sea salt<br>
1 onion, finely chopped<br>
2 tablespoons olive oil, or more as needed<br>
1/2 teaspoon onion powder<br>
Freshly ground pepper<br>
4 &#189; tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour<br>
<br>
1. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Quarter 1 potato; cook until soft in a saucepan of salted boiling water, about 20 minutes. Drain; mash the potato in a large bowl.<br>
<br>
2. Grate the remaining potatoes. Place in a colander in the sink. Sprinkle with &#190; teaspoon salt; mix salt through with your fingers and let sit until ready to use. The potatoes will turn pink but will be fine once they are cooked.<br>
<br>
3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 10 minutes. Transfer onions to the bowl with the mashed potatoes.<br>
<br>
4. Meanwhile, place the grated potatoes in a clean cotton dish towel; squeeze as much liquid as possible out of the potatoes. Add to the mashed potatoes; add remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, onion powder and pepper to taste. Stir well; add the flour, stirring again.<br>
<br>
5. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet. Working in batches, press potato mixture firmly into a 1/2 cup scoop; place in pan. Press down with a spatula. (Each latke will be about 4 inches across.) Repeat with more of the potato mixture, leaving several inches between latkes. Fry on each side until brown and crispy.<br>
<br>
6. Place each batch on a large cookie sheet; keep warm in the oven until all latkes are done. Serve with applesauce and sour cream.<br>
