Having got the kids to eat (and love) sweet potato in fish cakes, I’ve managed to made it a double with these sweet potato and chorizo fritters. Not only do they contain a good portion of veg (including the infamous sweet potato), they are also quick, cheap and easy, so an ideal mid-week family meal. Any leftovers are great cold as a lunch, snack or dinner-on-run so nothing goes to waste! Feel free to omit the chorizo for a fab vegetarian dish, and/or melt some cheese on top as an extra twist!
- 4 heaped desert spoons of self raising flour
- 3 x eggs
- Milk (any) -a splash to loosen the mixture,if needed
- 1 medium (approx 20cm) courgette, grated
- 1 small/medium sweet potato, grated
- 2 spring onion, chopped finely
- 1/2 chorizo ring (ready cooked one), chopped into rounds and then quartered
- Twist of salt and pepper
- Fry the chorizo quickly, on a high heat until crispy, drain on kitchen paper
- Mix the flour and eggs together to form a pancake batter the consistency of double cream, if the mix is too thick, add a splash of milk. If it becomes too lose, add a teaspoon of flour
- Place the courgette, sweet potato and spring onion into a clean muslin (or tea towel) and squeeze out all the juice
- Add the veg mix to the batter, season, mix and combine
- The mix can then be covered and left in the fridge until you are ready to eat
- Add the crispy chorizo pieces at the last moment to keep them crispy
- Fry in large dollops until golden (about 3-4mins each side)
- Serve with salad.
- These are also great served cold for an out-and-about lunch or dinner!
