Leek & Sweet Potato Cakes

Ingredients

2 leeks 

2 sweet potatoes 

3 cloves garlic 

1 red onion 

½ tsp sage 

2 tbsp olive oil 

¼ tsp salt 

½ cup gram flour (chickpea flour)

¼ cup cooking oil (I used vegetable)

 

Method

Finely dice the red onion and leek then gently fry in a tsp of olive oil

Meanwhile dine the sweet potato into approx 3cm cubes then pop in the microwave for 4-5 minutes to soften 

After the red onion and leek has softened, micne the garlic cloves then add to the pan 

Pop all of the ingredients into a food processor, followed by the sage, gram flour, salt and blitz

Depending on the size of your sweet potatoes, the mix should be firm enough for you to mould into the patty/cakes, if it is completely sticking to your hand, add more flour ¼ cup at a time until you can easily mould the mix

Add the oil to a deep frying pan until piping hot, then add the sweet potato cakes and fry on each side for around 3-4 minutes until golden, then flip and cook for the same amount of time

You can choose to bake the sweet potato patties for 22 minutes at 180ºC turning them after half the time
