Ingredients

  • 3 cups of mashed potatoes

  • 1 cup of nuts of your choice (walnuts, brazil nuts, peanuts or a mix of..)

  • ½ cup sunflower seeds

  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds

  • 1 cup grated peeled kumara (sweet potato)

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped fine

  • 1 onion, chopped fine

  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon ground coriander, 1/4 tsp chilli powder

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs of your choice, (such as parsley, rosemary, sage, chives, thyme, oregano)

  • 1 ½ tsp salt, black pepper to taste


Method

  1. Roast the nuts and seeds in the oven on low heat (100c) for 20 min, checking often.

  2. Grind nuts in a food processor until they are medium to fine ground

  3. Place the ground nuts and seeds in a medium size bowl and add onion, garlic herbs and spices.

  4. In a large bowl, mix the potatoes with the grated kumara, add the ground nut mix into the potato and kumara and mix well by hand.

  5. Form patties by forming a ball, in the palm of your hand out of the mixture, and flatten it on a clean dry surface, using polenta to dust the surface will help it not stick, then with a spatula gently lift and place on a lined baking sheet or tray.
