    Method

    1. Peel the skin and cut sweet potato into 2cm chunks. Bake in the oven at 180C for 20-30 min until it is nice and soft.
    2. Cook homegrown chickpeas and lentils, dry very well.
    3. Diced spanish onion in fry pan with little bit of olive oil until soft and juicy.
    4. Place cooked sweet potato in the food processor, and blend until it becomes a smooth paste.
    5. If you prefer some texture to the patties, add half of the chickpeas into the food processor and save the other half for later. If you prefer smooth, add all the chickpeas into food processor for blending.
    6. Transfer this mixture to a big bowl and add cooked lentil, onion, chopped parsley and the rest of spice and herbs. [and the other half of chickpeas if saved]
    7. Shape into 4-6 patties, between 1.5 – 1.8 cm thick.
    8. Sprinkle some corn flour onto all sides of the patty before cooking. [this will help keep the shape and give a nice crispy texture]
    9. Heat 2-3 tbsp of olive oil on the stove over medium to medium-high heat and pan fry until it turned to a crispy, deep golden brown colour. Around 4 minutes on each side.
    10. Plate up with your choice of garnish. In the completed photo above we have rocket and tomato salad with olive oil and lemon dressing, with tzatziki sauce.
