well thank god for the internet
heres a latka recipe, and i realized it was entirely vegan!
* 4 big potatoes
* 1 onion
* 2 eggs ( use egg substitute for vegans )
* 2 tbsp. flour
* 2 tsp. baking powder
Peel and grate the potatoes by hand. Put them in water, and strain with a cheesecloth. Grate the onion, and add to the potatoes. Mix in the eggs( or egg substitute ), then the flour and baking powder. Mix all ingredients together well. Put oil in a frying pan, and heat. Scoop spoonfuls of mixture onto frying pan. Fry until brown on both sides.Makes about two to three dozen latkes. (If you don't think you'll have enough, it's fine to add more potatoes to the mixture.)
