Recipe Directions

Using a grater, grate the potatoes over a bowl and you should have a large bowl of grated potato. Mix the grated potato with the vinegar and let it sit at room temperature for at least 12 hours. This is an important step as it removes the starches from the potato and concentrates the flavor. The final product doesn’t really have a vinegar flavor; it’s just adds a mild sweetness and flavor. After 12 hours, drain the vinegar off (you can reserve it to soak more potatoes) and mix the salt and olive oil in (use more or less to suit your tastes) and spread the potato mix in little 4-inch diameter cakes on mesh dehydrator sheets and dry them for just 1-3 hours, until the cakes are soft in the middle and dry and crispy on the outside. Enjoy and experiment with other ingredients like herbs such as basil, as well as onions.

RawKidChef's Thoughts

You wouldn’t believe how good raw potatoes could taste until you prepared them. These cakes are soft and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside, with a a buttery flavor.

wow, I'm soaking the potatoes right now, I'm so curious about how they'll turn out! I tried raw potato chips a while ago and loved the taste but not the consistency, so I really hope this will be great!
Thanks, RawKidChef!

Hi mikepattonisgod, , the yield was kind of an estimate, the recipe doesn't let me change it but I will once I can. How did they come out?

These look awesome! I'm going to try them with fresh sage, thyme, rosemary and black pepper for thanksgiving. I'll let you know how they turn out.

So, I just put these in the dehydrator, but even though I doubled this recipe, I ended up coming up with only about 18 little 4 inch patties.
Not sure where I went wrong, but hopefully all will turn out well, anyways.
I'll let you know.
Happy Holidays!

For Thanksgiving if you add a little basil and black pepper you can get a stuffing-like flavor, also.

Isisrahti - yes, the measurements got changed because of the updates. I can't seem to update the recipe. But I used 1/8 of a cup or 1/4 of a cup of vinegar, so everybody can experiment with these measurements until I can get the recipe edited.

Isisrahti's Review

Potato Cakes
4
4 out of 5

Great recipe - fun, easy, and satisfying. My only question was on the amount of vinegar - .125 cups seemed like a small amount (or maybe I'm just dingy)? Either way, I gauged enough to cover the potatoes and it seemed to work out just fine. Thank you again for a wonderful recipe!
PS: Dear "cravefood" - what does it matter whether "rawkidchef" is an actual 12yr old, a mother w/a 12yr old, or some such combo of both posting? Please, hurtful comments have no place in this section or in the raw food community. Peace.

i dont think this person is 12 years old.... for some reason they want us to think so. the adult insites and wording of language come from someone thats an adult....not a kid.
this kid says she's been raw with her mother for many years?
excuse me? 12 year olds dont have MANY years beind them.
its all just a big lie.
the question is why? we all want to be younger but 12? LOL thats a bit much.
but a good recipe from her nevertheless.

Hi bronwyn, you'll love this! rawlinda - let me know how it goes.
Annabelle, oh yes, you could make really good chips with sweet potatoes too. Just use water instead of vinegar as the flavors probably won't mix well. Raw sweet potato cakes sound great to me.

I have a sweet potato about to go bad... you think this would work with it? I know that sweet potatoes and potatoes are different beings...
