Sweet potato Falafels


  • 2 sweet potatoes (about 800g)
  • 120g plain flour
  • 1tsp ground cumin
  • 1tsp ground coriander
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1tbsp olive oil
    juice of half a lemon
  • A handful of fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • Seasoning


Preheat the oven to 200C.
Roast the sweet potatoes whole until just cooked (about 45 minutes - 1 hour). Turn off the oven, leave the potatoes to cool, then peel.

Place the sweet potato flesh in a bowl with the kneading hook; gently add the cumin, garlic, ground and fresh coriander, lemon juice and flour. Season well. Leave the mixture in the fridge to firm up for an hour or so.

Using a couple of soupspoons dipped in cold water, make the mixture into small patties and put them on an oiled baking tray. Bake in the oven for approximately 8 minutes on each side golden-brown. Serve with tahini, salad leaves and pitta bread
