Well you could make the sour cream and apple sauce easy.
I am not fully sure about this idea, you would have to play with it, but take an apple or two place it in a blender, then blend till apple sauce like.
I remember seeing an sour cream recipe, I remember it had Sunflower seeds, mac nuts, lemon, sea salt and water. It was pretty sour cream like.
I have not tried anything with potatoes before, but I know they substitute jicama for potato alot. I think it it called the mexican potato.
You might be able to try a regular potato, like shave it, mix some olive oil and sea salt, and maybe dehydrate? Is there cream in a potato cake? if so, combine it with some of the sour cream and dehydrate.
Maybe somone on here might be able to recomened something better.
You could also try using a sweet potato, or a squash instead of potato.
Hope these ideas help!

Yum raw hash browns would be delicious!! The only thing I can say is Alissa's BBQ chicken fingers look to have the same sort of texture and look of a hash brown. I'm thinking ditching the curry and poultry seasoning to rid the spicyness, keep the rest and add cauliflower and sweet potato (both food processed into rice consistancy). I'm pretty sure those 2 things would get more towards the flavor of hash with those things added to the lentils, carrots etc and give a more crispy food like hash browns. Something I will probably try at some point!

When I tried making potato chips, I noticed that when I checked them at a certain point, they'd gone soft and had the taste of a cooked potato. This was but a brief period of time though. As they began to crisp up, they took on the raw potato taste again. So you might try that. I cut them in very thin slices using a box grater then soaked in cold, salted water, changing the water a few times, then added a bit of vinegar, then a plain water rinse to get off the vinegar taste. I then put them in the dehydrator and checked them very frequently. This was one of my first dehydrating attempts. You'd have to get them at just the right time though.

Large zucchini peeled & grated
1/2 small grated onion
dried chipotle spice
Salt the grated zucchini & let sit for ~1 hour. Rinse off salt and squeeze dry.
Combine zuccini w/ grated onion, pepper, nutmeg, chipotle spice. Place onto teflex deydrator sheet by shaping into patties (~1/4 cup each) thicker in the middle & very thin at the edges. Gently salt each patty & dehyrate. Carefully flip each patty after ~4 hours -- the centers will still be very soft. Dehydrate for another 2-3 hours. The edges should be crisp and the center soft.
Serve w/ Mock sour cream &/or apple sauce
Hope you enjoy!!!!
