Kumara Cakes

This is a quick and easy recipe that tastes as good as it sounds! I had a tricky time trying to figure out what to add to mixture to bind the cakes. So instead of using egg, I just left it out and they worked out fine! If you have chic pea flour or any type of flour, that will help to make them bind better. Use you imagination and add whatever you like to the cakes, I just used what I had as usual :)

Kumara Cakes - Sweet Potato Cakes


2 medium kumara 
1/2 red onion diced 
1 clove of garlic diced 
1 sprig of sliced spring onion
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
4 tablespoons of chic pea flour or any flour (optional)
2 tablespoons high heat oil
Salt and pepper to taste 


1. Boil kumara in a pot or microwave for about 5 minutes. Strain water once soft, then cool.

2. Mash kumara roughly with a fork, then mix in the rest of the ingredients and season to taste.

3. Cook cakes on a medium high heat with a little oil. Use a spoon to drop them into the pan, and a spatula to flip.

Serve with sautéed baby spinach and mushrooms or a green salad.

Enjoy xx
