Vegan Latkes with Simple Ingredients?

Does anyone have a recipe for vegan latkes (potato or other) with ingredients that would be easy to find in Israel and preferably not too expensive?

      Sounds good. Do you think I should add more potato starch to compensate for the watery Israeli potatoes? Have you tried the roasted applesauce?

        I don't think it would hurt to squeeze some of the liquid out of the potatoes after you grate them. Just wrap them up in a kitchen towel and squeeze the bundle over the sink. That might help a little. I have not made the roasted applesauce. It's become a tradition in our family to make pink applesauce on Chanukah - boil together apples, sugar, whole cranberries.

      You really just can leave out the egg. It works fine.

        I agree but make sure you use a high starch potato like a russet
