Sweet Potato Falafel

Sweet Potato Falafel

to mix it up, swop out the coriander for parsley

Sweet Potato Falafel (makes 5)
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 spring/green onions, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander/cilantro leaf, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour, sieved
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 red chili, de-seeded and finely sliced (keep the seeds if you like your falafel spicy)
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  1. Place the sweet potato in a pot of water. Cover, bring to a boil and let simmer for 25-30 minutes until soft.
  2. Drain the potato, season well and mash vigorously to a smooth mash.
  3. Transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Scoop a generous tbsp of the mash and form into a patty shape. Place in the frying pan and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until brown. Repeat until the mash is used up.
