Sweet Potato & Kale Fritters
ADD the first 5 fritter ingredients to a blender. Blend until a smooth batter forms.
WASH & GRATE sweet potato – no need to peel it. You want 1 cup lightly packed cup of grated sweet potato.
FINELY chop + dice kale and herbs and slice scallions.
STIR IN Sweet potato, kale + herbs + black pepper – do not blend; stir together well.
HEAT a frying pan on medium heat; add ½ – 1 tsp oil.
POUR batter into the frypan forming fritters – about the size of the palm of your hand.
COOK 3-4 mins until air bubbles form on top and fritter it cooked halfway, golden and firm underneath. You may need to adjust the heat of your frying pan if the fritter gets too brown before the mixture has had time to cook.
FLIP cook the other side for 3-4s minutes until golden, and the fritter springs back lightly when gently pressed.
REPEAT until you have cooked all the batter. I keep my cooked fritters warm in a low oven, covered.
PLATE fritters over sprouts + thin julienne cut watermelon radish & sea salt flakes.
