Gluten-Free Vegan Boxty (Irish Potato Pancakes)

January 24, 2022
Boxty is a staple in Irish cuisine and since I first tried the gluten-free version of it, it climbed into my diet as well. I love to make them for breakfast, brunch or even for dinner. These Irish potato pancakes are very simple to make. Choose a potato that is not too crumbly or starchy. I like red potatoes for this.

They go well with various toppings, as a main dish or even as sides. I prefer them mostly for breakfast with loaded guacamole, vegan sour cream and vegan cheese.
