Raw Food Dehydrated Potato Pancakes

What do you do when you are on a raw food diet and winter is setting in? You expand your repertoire of raw food recipes to include heartier, warm raw food! I left the sunshine and 80 degree temperatures in Boulder and arrived to to rain and low 40’s in Minneapolis. It is cold and wet. I knew the last thing I wanted for dinner was all cold food. Time to get creative.




Spotting a beautiful, organic, home grown potato sitting on the counter, I got to work. Previously, I have never used white potatoes in my recipes. Actually, you don’t want to eat potatoes completely raw. Using the dehydrator solved that problem. When I started this dish, I wasn’t  sure how it would turn out. I threw some ingredients together and placed it in the dehydrator. 3 hours later, I was delighted with the results.  Warm out of the dehydrator, served with raw apple sauce, this makes a satisfying meal on a cold, wet night.

    It is pretty cold up north where I am too, so I’m looking for warming but still raw vegan recipes. Never had raw potatoes before… perfect time to try it 🙂 I have the feeling that this is a kid friendly recipe too, perfect! Thanks you 🙂

    Hey Amy –

    Just FYI, I don’t have a dehydrator either but I’ve had great results dehydrating many things with my oven set at the very lowest temperature and cracking the oven door open with something like a ball of foil or a rolled up dish towel. It takes less time to dehydrate, so you’ll have to adjust – but it’s a great way to get around recipes that call for a dehydrator!

      The big problem is that you can’t control the heat. The whole idea with the dehydrator is that you keep the temp of the food under 116 degrees to maintain the enzymes and also the vitamins and nutrients. Using the oven can work but if it is getting done much faster, it probably is working at a much higher temp. But if you don’t have an option, you can use it.

    @Amy – I read somewhere that if you don’t own a dehydrator you could use your oven at the lowest temp. Although it would use quite a bit of energy.

    I love it when I just throw things together and they turn out!!! Sometimes those make the best recipes!! Though sometimes they not turn out… oh the joys of playing in the kitchen. 🙂

    Looks amazing. Is there a way to make this w/out a dehydrator? Like, could I put it in oven at very low temp for a while? Or… could I “gently” cook it and still get food value?
