Vegan Latkes

1. With a box grater or food processor, grate potatoes, carrot and zucchini into a towel.  Squeeze out all liquid and place dried grated vegetables into a bowl.  

2. Add flour, corn starch, salt and pepper, mix well with hands.  

3. In a large frying pan heat oil over medium-low heat. Drop several spoonfuls of the mixture into hot oil without overcrowding the pan. Using the back of a spoon, pat down each latke to flatten it. Putting them too close together will make them soggy and difficult to flip. 

4. Fry 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden and crisp around the edges; repeat procedure until finished with all the batter.

5. Serve with vegan sour cream.
