Try these epic hearty sweet potato cakes, they are so easy to make and absolutely delicious.

You will need:

(serves 3-4)

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 small leek
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1/2 head broccoli
  • 4 spring onions
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4-5 tbs chia seeds
  • 1/2 bowl breadcrumbs
  • 1 bunch fresh thyme
  • 1/2 bag rocket
  • 2 thumb sized pieces feta cheese
  • olive oil 
  • balsamic vinegar 

Simple steps:

  • Cut the sweet potato into small pieces and cook in a pan of boiling water with a little salt.  Once soft, drain and mash with a potato masher.
  • Finely dice the rest of the vegetables into small pieces.  Pan fry the veg in a non stick pan with a little olive oil and fresh thyme.  Fry until golden brown.  After 3-4 minutes in the pan add the vegetables into a large mixing bowl along with the sweet potato mash.
  • Fold the mash into the veg then shape into patties.  If the mix seems a little wet add a couple of tablespoons of breadcrumbs.
  • In a seperate bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and chia seeds together.  Coat the patties in the breadcrumb and chia seed mix then lay onto an oven proof tray.  Grill for 5-6 minutes until nice and crispy.
  • Serve with a rocket and feta salad and dress with balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil.
