Leprechaun Potato Pancakes 


These easy-to-make plant-based version Leprechaun Potato Pancakes are perfect for your breakfast side dish. It has 6 only ingredients and 6 easy steps. You can make it in no time. In addition, they are the crispy, hot, and gooey recipe you’ve ever made with grated potatoes. So I’m sure it will become your family’s favorite breakfast food. This is Irish cuisine. I thought Leprechaun was just a fictional character (that’s my childhood fave movie). But it turned out to be a healthy Irish traditional food. This is usually cooked or traditionally done every St. Patrick’s Day. Moreover, they are also an ideal meal for Kids in Ireland when celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Where is the lie? My whole childhood days were a lie. -Kidding aside!


Grated Potatoes


To share with you all. I added a lot of Potato recipes here on our vegan food blog site. I just realized that there are many different ways to cook potatoes such as; Pesto Potato Salad, Vegan Potato Soup- Our Recipe, and Vegan Mashed Potatoes.

You can do even better with the healthiest vegan diet. I think this is one of the additions I like to cook. However, they are budget-friendly vegan diet recipes you can make. Just so you know there are many kinds of potatoes. But I wanna share with you what potatoes are used in this recipe


What Kind of Potato using in this Pancake?

Russet PotatoRusset Potato or Idaho Potato is used in this recipe. They are big, dark brown potatoes with few eyes and dark brown skin. The flesh is dry, floury; light, and fluffy; hearty, chewy skin when cooked. They are also healthy and can provide you with the carbs, potassium, and energy you need to perform at your best.


Been surprised? Me too! I have round up the steps and ingredients to make this delicious Irish Cuisine. Happy Cooking!

Leprechaun Potato Pancakes

Here's my vegan take on potato pancakes, which are normally made using shallow-fried shredded potato, flour, and an egg. My recipe does not contain any additives that might harm our arteries. As a vegan, I prefer dairy-free toppings such as applesauce or unconventional options such as salsa, guacamole, or hummus.
