Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 350g gold sweet potato, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 350g mixed tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • 200g zucchini, coarsely grated
  • 50g baby spinach
  • 50g of rocket leaves
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 free range eggs, lightly whisked
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 cup (120g) grated tasty cheddar
  • 1/2 cup (60g) buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup (80g) spinach dip
  • 3/4 cup (210g) of Greek-style yoghurt (or substitute a cup of hummus for the dip and yoghurt)

Instructions

  1. Combine the zucchini, spring onion, sweet potato, cheddar, and egg in a large bowl. Then add the flour and stir until well combined. Season the mixture after.
  2. Heat 2tbs of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add four 1/4 cup (60ml) portions of the sweet potato mixture to the pan. Then cook for 3 minutes each side or until golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep it warm. Repeat, in 2 more batches, with the remaining sweet potato mixture.
  4. Combine the tomato, spinach, and rocket in a separate medium bowl rate. Drizzle with the remaining oil and season the mixture.
  5. Combine the dip and yogurt in a small bowl. Arrange the fritters on a serving platter and season. Then serve with the salad and yogurt mixture.

Notes

Make it ahead - Cook the fritters up to 2 days ahead. Store in an airtight container in fridge. Reheat in oven at 180°C for 15 mins, or in a preheated sandwich press for 2-3 mins, or until heated through.

I say zucchini, you say courgette. or courgetti! Either way, it's a great tasting vegetable that's almost fat-free, carbohydrate-free and sodium-free yet is a great source of potassium, magnesium and vitamin C.

Where to get buckwheat flower:

Made from ground buckwheat grains, this gluten-free flour is ideal for baking and cooking. Find it in the health food or baking aisle. Of course, if you don't need to go gluten-free, just use a plain wheat flour.

Try adding half a cup of sultanas for a totally different taste sensation.
