  • 3 x medium sweet potato grated (skin can be left on if organic)
  • 2 tablespoons x coconut oil
  • zest x 1 lime
  • 2 x large leaves of silverbeet finely chopped
  • 2 x organic free range eggs beaten
  • 1 tablespoon x fresh chopped coriander
  • 2 tablespoons x buckwheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons x almond meal
  • 1 tablespoon x honey

  • 1 x kaffir lime chopped finely (I also use a mortal and pestle to enhance flavour)
  • 1/2 x leek chopped finely
  • 1 clove x garlic crushed
  • 1/2 tsp x ginger power
  • 1/2 tsp x turmeric powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (fan forced).
  2. Line baking tray with paper.
  3. Grate potato then place in a bowl and mix in 1 teaspoon sea salt. Stand for 15 minutes. Then drain the sweet potato by squeezing with a towel (I use a hemp cloth- cotton or even chux is fine). Use some strength here! Discard liquid.
  4. In a fry pan on medium heat add coconut oil, leek, garlic, ginger powder and turmeric powder.
  5. Mix everything together in a large bowl.
  6. Using wet hand create patties. and place on lined tray.
